The Pamphilion Theatre in Uckfield announces autumn season

A TOWN theatre’s autumn season opens on a rousing note.

But promoters say support from local businesses is needed if it is to continue to take part in Uckfield’s cultural scene.

The Pamphilon Theatre is fast gaining a reputation for bringing high quality professional theatre to the town and the wider community but to ensure that it continues to provide top notch rural theatre at an affordable price, the Pamphilon needs corporate sponsorship from local companies.

Theatre promoters say the benefits include widespread publicity, as well as a connection with a thriving Uckfield project. The funds available after the bills have been paid go direct to the PTA Charity Account for the benefit of all Uckfield Community Technology College students.

The Pamphilon Theatre productions cost £9 to attend (£5 for students) but members get one production free. Adult members can pay £45 and students can pay £25 to see six top quality productions from one of the country’s best rural touring theatre companies.The Pamphilon’s new season starts on Saturday, September 10 with A Rake’s Progress, an evening of comedy, rousing songs, eccentric masks and rumbustious puppets. This is a return visit from the Strangeface theatre company whose productions include a backstage tour to see the masks that are an integral part of Strangeface’s inventive theatre experience.
