Presented by Peterbrook Players.

This show was cancelled due to Covid-19 regulations but we’re delighted to have rescheduled to this new date.  If you can attend that’s great simply write the new date on your tickets (same seats as previously) and write it in your diary!  If you bought online/phone and don’t have your tickets, they’re still with us and can be collected any time after we re-open including just prior to the (new) show.

If you can’t attend, you’re entitled to a refund.  All ticketholders will receive a letter from us, outlining refund options, so please wait for your letter as we have a lot of shows to refund.

Please bear with us at this difficult time and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Core Theatre next season.


Phineus T Barnum is quite possibly the World’s Greatest Showman and Peterbrook Players’ 2020 production of this classic musical promises to be their most adventurous and spectacular to date.

Barnum is in the circus business despite his wife's wishes, working with talents such as the oldest woman alive, Joice Heth, the tiny Tom Thumb and the famous Swedish opera singer, Jenny Lind, with whom he almost falls in love. In the end, he returns to his wife and joins with another circus owner, James Anthony Bailey, to form the Barnum and Bailey circus.

Come one, come all … expect to be transformed, dazzled, amazed and stupefied!
You will not be disappointed, but don’t leave it too late, because this society that brought you Singin’ In The Rain (2017), Spamalot (2018) & Legally Blonde (2019) are sure to sell out … and “that ain’t no flim-flam”!
