The Alley Theatre is ushering in the autumn season with a jam-packed programme of music, comedy, drama and workshops to keep everyone entertained over the coming months.
Highlights for autumn and winter include music from the legendary Phil Coulter, live stand up with the hilarious Conal Gallen and Neil Delamare, and a whole host of family entertainment including Jurassic Roar and Nativity the Musical.
Looking ahead to the new season, Mayor of Derry and Strabane, Councillor Patricia Logue, said: “As always, the Alley Theatre programme has something for all ages, with plenty of family friendly events and activities to enjoy.
“I’m delighted to see that the programme also features a wide variety of arts workshops, which provide an opportunity to get involved, meet new people and learn new skills.
“The Alley Theatre really is the creative hub of Strabane, and I would encourage people to check out the programme online as tickets will be on sale now.”
The programme includes a bumper line-up for Halloween, with arts and crafts, story-telling, live performances and themed movies to get you in the spirit.
It also brings some added sparkle to Christmas throughout December with a series of festive films and concerts to help celebrate the season in style.
Alley Theatre manager Louise Boyce said she was looking forward to a busy few months.
“We are delighted to announce our new autumn and winter programme and to be able to deliver such a varied mix of cultural experiences for people this year,” she said.
“The Alley Theatre is a wonderful platform for local talent, and we have so many fantastic local performers featuring in the programme from Emer Maguire to The Logues, to our resident Jazz Trio featuring Gerard Bradley, naming only a few.
“We have brilliant drama lined up with ‘For the Love of Mary’ in October, as well as ‘Up the Poll’ starring Conal Gallen.
“Other highlights include music with Claudia Buckley, Onóir, Brandon McPhee and Strawman, as well as a comprehensive programme of arts workshops covering everything from landscape painting to glass fusion.
“There really is something for everyone, whether you want to sit back enjoy the entertainment or get involved in the vast range of cultural activity.”
The prestigious Alley exhibition area will also host a number of exhibitions over the coming months, showcasing work by the late local artist Eddie O’Kane, Jewish-Israeli artist Zohar, and a special collection of work by the Northern Ireland Photographic Association.
