Aylesbury Waterside Theatre’s Norman Bragg Studio Future Events

Aylesbury Waterside Theatre’s Norman Bragg Studio continues to broaden its programme of events, offering evenings with a difference, and something to suit everyone. Whether you want party nights, sing-a-longs, live music, family fun or to support local bands, the studio champions diverse fringe theatre and fresh new talent alongside unique community events, screenings and more.

Returning following a sold-out show is Hundred Watt Club’s An Evening of Burlesque and Vaudeville (Sat 16 Sep) with a no-holds-barred journey into the world of showgirls and spectacle, and starting the season in fine style is Bucks Radio with their Back to School Disco (Sat 9 Sep).

Vocal warmups at the ready on Tue 19 Sep when pianist Michael Webborn invites you to sing your favourite musical theatre and Disney numbers at Musical Theatre Karaoke (Tue 19 Sep), and for those with more of a penchant for dance, do not miss the Waterside Ceilidh with Ceilidh Tree (Fri 29 Sep) – complete with a caller who will talk you through each step. All are welcome with no previous experience necessary.
