A welcome return to home-produced theatre in Oldham

Our friends at Oldham Coliseum’ have announced their Autumn/Winter 2021-22 Season

Oldham Coliseum Theatre today announces its first full season since the pandemic – featuring heart-warming and thought-provoking drama alongside comedy, music, magic and dance - plus the highly anticipated return of the theatre’s much-loved annual pantomime.

With the new season the theatre also reignites its Season Ticket offer with multibuy discounts on eight shows throughout the Autumn and Winter months: Love N Stuff, Who Cares, Sunny Side Up, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored, Blue/Orange, The Glee Club and The Ballad of Maria Marten.

Oldham Coliseum closed its doors to the public with immediate effect following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 16 March 2020. It reopened with its first live event The Greatest Play in the History of the World… on Thursday 24 June 2021.

Throughout its closure the theatre’s teams worked remotely to create and share great art and opportunities to be creative, and making regular phone calls to participants at risk of experiencing loneliness due to lockdown. The theatre’s work in lockdown includes: seven new digital Micro Commissions, an interactive murder mystery Whodunnit at the Coliseum? the Advent Plays, Digital Panto Storytelling, the Mini-Podcast series, the Poetry Health Service – a Homemakers commission in partnership with HOME Manchester, streaming of hit musical The Hired Man and Coliseum Creates – a resource pack of fun activities for families and children of all ages.
