Harrogate Theatre to reach out to community with Our Gate production performed on real street

Harrogate Theatre said it was going to reach out to the community while it's closed for a £1m roof replacement - and with ambitious and exciting new production Our Gate it is certainly living up to its word.

Harrogate Theatre is to present Our Gate, a dynamic new immersive community play this summer.

Our Gate is a dynamic immersive community play with Harrogate and it’s citizens at its core.

Funded with an Arts Council grant, the show will travel between indoor and outdoor locations along Oxford Street with the audience at the centre of the action.

Created by local writer Rachael Halliwell and director Amie Burns Walker who brought the hugely successful Great Gatsby to Harrogate Theatre in 2019, the team are also delighted to welcome back Evening Standard x TikTok Future Theatre Award winner Caitlin Mawhinney who will be designing the show.

Working directly with a combined intergenerational community and professional cast - this play has been made by the town and for the town.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, June 5 from noon.

Performances will run from Tuesday, August 24 to Sunday, August 29 inclusive.
