Cast has just announced it's new season of shows.

“I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to develop our programme of free outside events, kicking off with such an impactful comment on the climate crisis, and partnering with the Doncaster African Caribbean Support Group and Doncaster City Council on the Reggae Festival.

“Plus we’re bringing Roundabout back, an accessible pop up space to showcase the best of new writing, alongside community performances.

“Also, we’ll be sharing our broadest Christmas offer ever, including our annual pantomime plus a show we’ve been developing, created specifically for babies and their carers.”
