Tim Ford, the Garrick’s artistic director said: “We have an incredibly exciting programme lined up this season and I am thrilled to be welcoming some of the finest companies and artists to Lichfield.

“We have something for everybody and we are incredibly proud of the work that is being developed here at the Garrick.”

The theatre will welcome comedy drama Invincible, Jane Austen’s romantic tale Northanger Abbey and a new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Family favourites will include a visit by CBBC favourites Dic and Dom, Horrible Histories and West End hit The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

The Garrick Introducing series will continue with circus skills and acrobatics on display in Bromance, as well as Ventoux – a restating of the epic rivalry between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani.

Laughs will be provided courtesy of Al Murray, Rory Bremner and Jim Davidson, while music fans will be able to hear The Barron Knights, The Opera Boys and Elkie Brooks.

The Garrick300 programme features Cymberline, along with a playwriting competition to inspire the next generation of theatrical writers.

Tim added: “This is a very special year for us as we celebrate the life and times of David Garrick.

“This season also sees the start of our Garrick300 Sculpture by Peter Walker fundraising campaign, in which we hope to raise enough money to have a permanent sculpture of David Garrick put in place.

“We really look forward to opening our doors to everyone this spring.”
