The Norwich performance venue has just released its latest brochure which features an array of shows as well as lots of performance and workshop opportunities for young people.

Adam Taylor, executive director of The Garage, based in Chapel Field North, said: 'We have a cracking season ahead of us, from brilliant local companies The Keeper's Daughter and Stuff Of Dreams Theatre Company presenting work in progress sharing of their shows in development, to Limbik Theatre presenting The Forecast here at The Garage before it plays London dates.

'I feel really proud to be able to present these, the best local professionals beside critically acclaimed shows like Blush presented by Snuffbox Theatre – all great calibre productions.'

Among the show highlights, The Keeper's Daughter will perform the sci-fi romance Tomorrow Is Your Hope on May 3, meanwhile the Cold War thriller Anglian Mist will be presented by Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company on May 19, and Limbik Theatre's The Forecast - a look at freedom and the future - will be at the theatre on June 2.

Mr Taylor said there were also lots of classes and performance projects for young people to get involved in, including The Garage's big summer youth production of Sleeping Beauty, the chance to work with puppetry company Ripstop Theatre on an intergenerational performance, and an actor-musician project inspired by the Philip Pullman novel Clockwork.

'Whether it's a class or production, whether you're young – or not so young, take a look at what's on offer in the coming months ahead,' he said.
