The greatest showman

Screen Shaftesbury Presents:

The Greatest Showman

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

Genre: Biography, drama, musical

Certificate: PG

Box Office is open on the day from 10am to 12 noon, and again from 7pm in the evening. Doors open at 7.00pm (show starts at 7.30pm)

Cinema

Although the prime function of the theatre is to provide stage productions, we also show films.

In 2001 Dawlish Repertory Company made a successful bid to The Lottery “Awards for All” Scheme to fund the purchase of cinema equipment. It was felt that we could offer the town a cinema; something which has been missing for many years.

The facilities in the theatre have been expanded to offer full surround sound. In January 2017 the projector was upgraded to a Hitachi 5000 lumens projector, and a digital cinema mixer was installed.

The Box Office opens on the morning of the films from 10:00am to 12:00pm for callers in person and telephone bookings.
