CATS at the Brewhouse 3-6 December 2013


Taunton School will be the first to use the Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre since it was closed in February this year. They will be staging their production of CATS following an agreement to work in partnership with TDBC for this one off show.

CATS is a musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. The musical tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as “the Jellicle choice” and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.

Tickets will sell out fast! You can make sure you don’t miss this wonderful show by booking now

Taunton Theatre Association are excited to see the Theatre in use again, and whilst there is no connection with their bid to secure the operating licence feel that it can only be a positive reinforcement of the need for Taunton’s Theatre to see the dust covers removed. Taunton Deane are expected to make a decision about the future operator of the Theatre and Arts Centre in early December.

Taunton Thespians – Merry Wives of Windsor – A Somerset Classic!

Taunton Thespians present ‘Merry Wives of Windsor’

Buy your tickets now from the online ticket office

Directed by: Michael Gilbert & Jane Edwards

The last performances of Taunton Thespians Summer Tour are now looming, with Maunsel House tonight (3rd July) Mount Somerset Hotel (4th July) Dillington House (5th July) and Hartwood House (6th July) all lined up to offer you the treat of William Shakespeare’s witty tale about the exploits of the ‘Fat Knight’ Sir John Falstaff played by Maat Ward. Maat captures the true spirit of the naughty knave as he woos two wealthy women, and finds himself bundled into a laundry (buck) basket and carried away! In the spirit of the age we see irony in abundance coupled with ribald humour and a health disrespect for matters of the court. Not to be missed…


Much frivolous fun for audences of all ages, and a true example of real living theatre from Taunton Thespians, to come along tickets, you will be pleased to hear, are still available and we have reserved a picnic spot just for you (indoor locations are available at all venues in case they suffer a shower.

Advance tickets cost £10 (children/ students £3).
