Multi award-winning Storyhouse in Chester have announced the 2018 summer season is now on sale.

A Little Night Music, Swallows and Amazons and The Crucible make up the season of home produced theatre at Storyhouse.

Alex Clifton, artistic director at Storyhouse, said: “Our company of more than 50 performers will present a season full of joy, passion and delight - which definitely offers something for everyone.

“A Little Night Music is one of the greatest musicals of the 20th century and will make for a gorgeous night out; Swallows and Amazons lit up my childhood and captures the best and wildest bits of all our school holidays; The Crucible is a political thriller that follows on brilliantly from our exhilarating production of Julius Caesar last summer.”
