Lyceum Theatre Oldham celebrates it's 90th anniversary

Date published: 09 May 2019

The theatre in Oldham ended it's 90th Anniversary celebration with a classic birthday party comedy.

This Season has proved one of the most successful in it's 90 years, including a brand new play that is the resurrection of the first play ever performed by Lyceum Players all those years ago.

They’ve chosen to end the Season on another high with Alan Ayckboun’s classic family drama 'The time of my life' on the 7th until the 15th of June.

A birthday descends into chaos as a toast to ‘happy times’ turns prophetically and hilariously wrong. 

Follow the stories of each family member through the past, the present and the future and indulge in the wonderful characters but keep an eye out for five waiters at the restaurant, you might begin to recognise them as the same person.

The production, which premiered at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough twenty seven years ago, will be directed by Melvyn Bates, whose last production was One For The Road in 2017. 

The cast is a mix of faces well known to Lyceum audiences, such as award-winning Maggie Blaszczok and new faces playing the younger generation.
