Surrey Civic Theatres launches subscription tickets for 2019/20 season

Subscription tickets have gone on sale for some Surrey Civic Theatres shows next season.

Five series packages are detailed on the city’s website and in mail-outs, including Arts Club, Comedy, Come Dancing Around the World, Film and Coffee Concert.

Surrey Civic Theatres’ entire 2019/20 season will be announced in August, according to publicist Angela Cachay, “but right now we’re launching some of the shows that we’ve packaged into series form.”

The three already-announced Arts Club on Tour theatre shows are Mark Crawford’s Bed & Breakfast, Morris Panych’s The Shoplifters and Ins Choi’s Kim’s Convenience.

The comedy series will feature Charles Ross’ One Man Stranger Things: A Parody and the return of Mike Delamont with his God Is a Scottish Drag Queen 2: The Second Coming, among other shows.

The three-film series will feature screenings of Baljit Sangra’s acclaimed Because We Are Girls, plus Birth of a Family and Love, Scott.
