Luton Library Theatre has a new look and a new mission.
Its bar has been redecorated, there are plans for a roof top terrace and it’s being promoted as the place where audiences – and stars – of the future will be created and encouraged.
Launching an Autumn season packed with shows to appeal to aspiring youngsters, Luton Culture creative producer Ellen Waghorn said: “Children are key to our venue.
“They’re our next generation of theatre-goers and performers. There’s lots of talent in Luton and we have this wonderful space where we can help artists develop.
“We want to bring literature to life - and what better place than a theatre situated in a library?”
She added: “This marks the start of a new future – we want to share our ideas and passion and get everyone talking about Luton Library Theatre and its potential.”
In addition to a great line-up of productions, the theatre will also host Script Lab, a competition for up-and-coming playwrights.
