From a Cinderella pantomime to a coming of age story set in rural Norfolk, there are an array of shows and events to enjoy in the new season at The Garage in Norwich.

The new brochure for the Chapel Field North venue is packed with performances, classes and more for all ages.

About some of the show highlights, Adam Taylor, the executive director of The Garage, said: 'There's a mixture of local stories and national companies. We are bringing work for young audiences which they have not seen before, from My First Panto: Cinderella with All-In Productions for children's first theatre experiences, to shows for teenagers like Harrogate put together by the Royal Court Theatre and Hightide.

'We are continuing our relationship with Frozen Light, and they are presenting Home, a piece for those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, and we are continuing our young people takeover events such as Slam which features some of the best young musicians from Norfolk.'

Other shows to look forward to for older audiences include 64 Squares, a tale of madness, memory and chess by Rhum and Clay, and Jess and Joe Forever, a Norfolk-set show about finding your place in the world presented by Farnham Maltings in association with Orange Tree Theatre.

Meanwhile for younger audiences there is Greenlight Theatre's Albee Vector The Sound Collector, an epic tale of love, adventure and a sound-hoover.

The Garage is also auditioning in September for its first GCSE dance qualification for people of all ages and is also presenting its regular class programme featuring ballet, street dance, musical theatre and more.
