The 2018 Season
“A blockbuster musical. The legendary world of Narnia. Sherlock Holmes. Our first Shakespeare. Stephen Fry. And a whole lot more. It's the 2018 Season at The Shaw. Come and be part of it. After all, theatre is one of those basic human needs: you can do it on your own, but it's better in company. Let’s get together.”
– Tim Carroll, Artistic Director
