Like everything about 2020 – things have changed. But the power of performance rises above the challenges we face. Since early summer, Coventry Youth Operetta Group (YOG) has been meeting weekly on “Zoom” devising and rehearsing a musical showcase, featuring songs chosen by the company, from the familiar to the not so familiar West End and Broadway Musicals, with the ultimate hope of being able to perform live before the end of the year. Featuring showstopping solo and company numbers from hit musicals including “Dear Evan Hansen”, “Matilda” and recent YOG productions including “Blitz” and “The Wizard of Oz” there is something for everyone in this showcase performance. Delivered in a Covid-secure venue with Covid-secure staging we can ensure that these musical theatre performers of tomorrow can continue to do what they love today and entertain families, friends and supporters of Musical Theatre in Coventry. By buying a ticket you are not only helping to ensure that YOG can survive for years to come but also supporting the future of the Albany Theatre, the home of community performances in Coventry.

“Just say you’re sorry.” Phoebe reckons her life is sorted. She pays her own bills, has a variety of pot plants and knows when and when not to use a bay leaf. And now she’s pregnant, yay! Pregnancy is joyous, miraculous, fabulous, tremendous… whatever. Maybe for some. But for Phoebe it’s not just the fags and booze she’s missing. She’s been pregnant before. It was a tragedy, but no one wants to know about that do they?

The team at The Albany Theatre in Coventry is elated to have received the news today (12/10/2020) that they have secured a £250k grant from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. Without the funding, The Albany would have been forced to close at the end of the week, but thanks to the hard work and dedication of all at the theatre, they can now look forward with confidence.
The Albany is pleased to announce that Zarah Sultana, Coventry South’s new MP, has joined the Board of the Charitable Trust that manages Coventry’s Albany Theatre and Studio on behalf of the community.
"We are ready to respond with creativity and enthusiasm as soon as we know it is safe to re-open... Rest assured, as soon as we have any news about The Albany we will let you know, we are ready to play our part in the re-emergence of live theatre."
