A Bunch of Amateurs

It is with deep regret we have to inform you that our forthcoming comedy, 'A Bunch of Amateurs', has been cancelled.

This is the first production we have been unable to stage in our 40 year history. We apologise to all our patrons who have purchased tickets for the show.

We do hope you will all wish to attend our next production, a Variety Show celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Manifest Theatre. This will run from Tuesday 8th to Saturday 12th May.


2018 Memberships

Subscriptions are now being accepted for 2018 memberships.
To simplify sales of tickets for our first production, it would be appreciated if members would kindly renew beforehand.
A membership form can be downloaded and sent to the Theatre with your renewal fees. Alternatively, you may write to us if this is more convenient for you.

Please enclose a SAE if you wish to have your membership card(s) returned by post, otherwise they will be waiting at the Theatre for your next visit.


Plays, Pints and Pot Luck!

Our next Plays & Pints will take place at the theatre on Friday 23rd March, starting at 7pm. The bar will be open and please bring a buffet style dish to contribute to a "pot luck" supper.

We are hoping to make play readings a regular event so do come along and if you have any suggestions on material for the future they will be gratefully received.

For any further information contact Sarah McCarthy
