Surrey Spectacular Season

The 2017/18 season is Surrey Civic Theatres' 50th anniversary—and it's gold, so we'd love you to join us!

There’s nothing like live—you won't have to talk yourself off the couch for these shows! You’ll be running out the door with a quick text to say “See you at the theatre. Can’t wait!” So unplug. Step away from the screens and the streaming, and go live!

To help make your experience the best it can be, we've pulled together some handy information (including restaurant partners, theatre tips, gentle reminders, and accessibility) on the Guest Services page.

If you're a bit of a history buff, we think you'll enjoy browsing the anniversary pages from our season brochure.

We've put all the information from our season brochure online, but we know there's something enjoyable about perusing the pages as if you're reading the print version.

Our venues are known as Surrey Civic Theatres. You'll want to make sure you know what venue your show is at!

  • Centre Stage at Surrey City Hall (CS)
  • Main Stage at Surrey Arts Centre (MS)
  • Studio Theatre at Surrey Arts Centre (ST)

Select a Series (or two) and save your gold!

We've packaged up some of our presentations at a substantial savings of up to 25%.

Look below the list of shows to read about the different series available to you.

2017/18 Season

Follow the links from the show titles to find out everything you need to know about each show. We've even got helpful hints (such as when a show contains mature themes and/or strong language), and some video/audio clips to help you choose.
