A new play by Bill Scott, with lyrics and music by Tom Adams.

Don’t miss Cornwall’s favourite alternative to pantomime this winter, when Miracle Theatre bring ‘the ultimate monster-mash up’ to Bude’s Parkhouse Centre on Thursday 20th December!

Renowned for their surreal and comic re-workings of well known and loved stories, Miracle’s inventive approach to FRANKENSTEIN!  promises to tickle funny bones and have audiences jumping out of their seats!

Originally a Victorian novel, famously a black and white movie starring Boris Karloff and the inspiration for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Miracle presents its Frankenstein! as a musical performed by the Ffitch Repertory Players in 1947.

As with past Miracle shows, The Revenge of Rumpelstiltskin and Aladdin, audiences will enjoy backstage glimpses of the intrepid players as they struggle to create their terrifying vision of the future - a world where the rich and famous have paid huge sums to have their bodies preserved at sub-zero tempera…

If you are looking for something special for all the family this summer – look no further!

Over the past two months Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre has been touring around the South West delighting audiences with their current show ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ and now it's heading your way.

Miracle Theatre has once again teamed up with the King Harry Ferry and the Fal River Team to offer audiences the chance to take a special ‘showboat’ from Falmouth to see The Importance of Being Earnest on Wednesday 8th & Thursday 9th August at St Mawes Castle.

The journey across the picturesque estuary will include a complimentary pint of ale from the local Skinners brewery range, a sunset cruise back to port, all hosted by the ‘Miracles cabin crew’ (Kyla Goodey and Sally Crooks of Trifle Gathering).

Miracle Theatre has gone into production of a feature film based on its recent sell-out show Tin, commissioned by the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Using an imaginative combination of digital technology and hand-made models, the Redruth-based company has now commenced production of a micro-budget feature film of this story of love and money, opera and tin mining.

The film will feature the original cast of the theatre production, which includes opera icon Ben Luxon. They will be joined by other actors, including Jenny Agutter (The Railway Children, Call the Midwife, Outside Bet) and Dudley Sutton (Lovejoy, Weekend Retreat) who will play Abraham Bennett, one of the devious bankers.

Jenny Agutter said of the project “I loved the production of Tin, which I saw at the Count House Botallack in a domed tent on the coast. This was an extraordinary and appropriate setting for the play, surrounded by ruined tin mines, one could easily imagine this fantastic tale taking place. The theatri…
