We are delighted to confirm the programme for the rest of this season.
Following on from the acclaimed 2011 version of Jane Eyre on March 25, we have Clint Eastwood's celebrated drama J Edgar starring Leonardo di Caprio as J Edgar Hoover on 29 April. This film explores the public and private life of Hoover who, in his lifetime, became the most powerful man in America, heading up the FBI for nearly 50 years.
On 10 June, we are screening the delightful Quartet. In Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, we have a warm, funny and emotional story with a terrific cast (including Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon).
To end the season, on July 15 we are showing the musical blockbuster Les Miserables. Directed by Tom Hooper, this is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe. There will be a special matinee presentation as well as the evening screening.
Patrons who saw our recent production of The Exorcism will have been impressed by our superb set, designed by Keith Orton and constructed by members of the Miller Centre Club and Theatre Company. Deservedly, it won a round of applause at every performance.
Unfortunately, it had to come down to make way for the next set. Steve Bishop recorded the event.
"The Miller Centre Theatre's recent production of Calendar Girls was truly superb. Perfect casting, excellent acting and an ingenious set combined to make this show even better than the long running professional production. The theatre produced their own calendar to go with the show. Beautifully shot in the best possible taste, I hear it raised over £5,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. How can they top this? The Miller's next show is The History Boys. Another great well chosen and another inspired set design hold promise of another great show in this very comfortable 'Tardis' of a theatre."
Following their stunning performances in our production of 'Calendar Girls' the cast are starring in their own sassy calendar that emulates the characters that they portray.
All profits from the sale of the calendars will be donated to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. The 'Calendar Girls' 2013 A3 sized calendar features full colour photographs of the cast and costs £5 each.
The calendars are available from the Miller Centre and can also be ordered by downloading the order form available here and sending it to the Miller Centre. Please note that cheques will only be banked after the order is fulfilled and returned if 'Calendar Girls' calendars sell out.
