Cast, Doncaster’s flagship theatre, has announced its Spring/Summer season with an astonishing over 100 new shows going on sale. “We are a theatre aiming to have a thriving programme of work that has the heart of Doncaster’s community at its core, and I am so excited to bring our 2019 season to the people of Doncaster.” – Deborah Rees, Director.


Cast is rapidly developing a reputation for bringing world-class arts and some of Britain’s most famous stars to Doncaster. Alongside their entertainment favourites, Cast is thrilled

to present Bill Kenwright’s production The Lady Vanishes (Mon 3 – Sat 8 June), a brand-new adaptation of the Hitchcock classic, together with their Main Space drama programme including Turn of the Screw (Tue 30 April – Sat 4 May) and My Mother Said I Never Should (Tue 19 – Wed 19 Feb).
