Spring 2021 season announcement

Rose Theatre reopens following second lockdown and announces new productions for spring 2021

Today is a big day for the Rose.

Today (3 December), we open up our doors to audiences once again following the end of the second national lockdown and we are so proud to announce key productions as part of our spring 2021 season.

The COVID-19 secure spring line-up includes the world premiere The Seven Pomegranate Seeds by Colin Teevan, directed by Rose Associate Artist Melly Still. This show is the first Rose Original production that we have been able to produce since the COVID-19 outbreak. It is an important milestone for the whole venue as we come to the end of one of the most challenging years we have ever faced.


Rose Theatre Artistic Director Christopher Haydon said:

“Following what has been a very tough year for everyone, I am so pleased that we are able to push forward with our spring 2021 shows, particularly the staging of our first Rose Original production since December 2019. The whole team at the Rose have done extraordinary work bringing everything together in what has undoubtedly been the most challenging year in the theatre’s history. It’s an absolute pleasure to have Melly back working with the Rose on what promises to be a majestically, exciting interpretation of Colin’s beautiful script.”


We are thrilled to have been able to reschedule Woke by Apphia Campbell and Meredith Yarbrough for February 2021. We also welcome Tall Stories’ enchanting adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Gruffalo’s Child in the February half term, the musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks' colourful farmyard adventure, What the Ladybird Heard for Easter and Birmingham Stage Company’s Horrible Histories: The Best of Barmy Britain in April.

We will welcome back socially-distanced audiences this December with Sh!t Theatre’s Sh!t Actually, playing 3 – 5 December, and Stick Man for the festive season, playing from 10 December to 3 January.
