BrumHour is invited to review and share about theatre at The Old Joint Stock Theatre throughout the year.
Theatre is looking to resume slowly in the late spring and across the summer and with that in mind The Old Joint Stock is returning too. This creative studio theatre is on the 2nd floor of a stunning Birmingham pub which has won many awards and plays host to touring fringe style productions as well as home grown talent.

The Old Joint Stock Theatre: Summer Season
March 2021: The Old Joint Stock Theatre has announced its most ambitious and exciting Summer Season yet:
The streets of New York are coming to the heart of Birmingham with two of Broadway’s best-loved musicals. Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors will run back to back with the same professional cast performing both productions.
These productions are produced by the same production team who brought the Award-nominated The Full Monty – The Musical to the Old Joint Stock Theatre in 2018.
Adam Lacey, Artistic Director at The Old Joint Stock said:
We are always trying to push the boundaries of what is possible in a fringe theatre. Producing two shows, back to back, with the same cast is a new challenge for us, and an exciting project for everyone involved. These productions were due to take place last summer, and we can’t wait to finally bring these shows to Birmingham following what has been an impossible year for everyone in our industry.”
Avenue Q (27th July-21st August)
The Old Joint Stock’s website says:
‘Avenue Q’ is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the story of a recent college graduate, Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet sexpert), Lucy The Slut and other colourful types who help Princeton finally discover his true purpose in life!

Little Shop of Horrors (1st to 26th September)
The Old Joint Stock’s website preview says:
Life isn’t easy on Skid Row, but maybe things are going to turn around for Seymour. He’s discovered a plant unlike any other and people are clambering to get a look. Perhaps he’ll finally win the attention and affection of his coworker, Audrey. Suddenly, Seymour’s appetite for fame and fortune is over-matched by the appetite of his new plant. Will the killer potential of Seymour’s new plant bring him everything he has ever wanted, will the price be too high?
