Sherman Cymru opens next year

Tickets are already on sale for the 2012 programme

Sherman Theatre refurbishment

Work goes on in Senghennydd Road as organisers prepare for the theatre's reopening

Sherman Cymru has begun selling tickets for its programme of events next year, as the theatre gears up to open in February 2012 following major refurbishment.

Tickets have been on sale since Monday 28 November. Theatre director Chris Ricketts hopes that the renovated building will attract new audiences to the arts in Cardiff.

He said, “We think it’s a really strong opening season and hope it will allow people to delve into Sherman Cymru for the first time or to rediscover it anew. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming audiences back into our new home.”

The play Lovesong by Abi Morgan is just one of a number of highlights – the Cardiff-born writer is best known for writing BBC drama The Hour and forthcoming film The Iron Lady.
