Pitlochry Theatre has announced their new autumn, winter and spring season including hit musicals and new adaptations of stage classics as well as a return of the popular Winter Words Festival.

Kicking off the new programme is the Brian Friel play Faith Healer starring television’s Line of Duty and Happy Valley actor George Costigan who is joined on stage by Richard Standing – best known for his role as Sally Webster’s love interest Danny Hargreaves in Coronation Street.

From November 21 to December 23 the theatre will present a new adaptation of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, written by Isobel McArthur.

A spokesperson for the theatre said: “A Christmas Carol is one of the most loved yuletide stories ever written.

“The popular Perthshire playhouse will perform the fantastic, festive tale of redemption and compassion, packed with feel-good festive music and song, dancing and joy, in the best of Christmas messages.”

In the New Year Banff Mountain Film Festival will show two brand new screenings of “adrenaline-pumping, extreme sport in breathtaking cinematography and stunning scenery” before the theatre celebrates Rabbie Burns with the Jambouree Singers on January 25.

The spring season begins with a host of musical numbers including previous sell-out performers Simon and Garfunkel – Through The Years on February 8.

A theatre spokesperson said: “The spring programme bursts into life in a fabulous array of first-time shows and welcome returners.

“Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons lead the way with tribute band Big Girls Don’t Cry  for a fantastic night celebrating over a decade of their hits, followed by Masters of the House in a spectacular journey through the world of musical theatre and movies, from former West End musicals stars.”

The Winter Words Festival will return to the theatre from February 13 – 16, though the programme schedule is still “under wraps”.

In March Pitlochry Theatre will present Pulitzer prize-winning playwright, Neil Simon’s Barefoot In The Park, made memorable on the big-screen by Jane Fonda and Robert Redford.

A theatre spokesperson said: “A joyous and funny love story, Barefoot In The Park is perfect for conjuring up that springtime feeling – the kind that makes you want to run barefoot in Pitlochry or Princes Street Gardens.”
