Haydn Boxall (seen here in Singin' In The Rain) is Kipps in Half a SixpenceMeet Kipps!

Unusually we have decided to cast this all-important role in advance. So we’re pleased to announce that Haydn Boxall (seen here as Cosmo Brown in Singin’ In The Rain) will be returning in the lead role as Arthur Kipps.

Would you like to join us onstage?

It is now too late for Half a Sixpence! All the remaining parts have now also been cast, but you can contact us if you would like to be notified about auditions for future shows including Peter Pan the Pantomime rehearsing from September for presentation in January 2013 and Oliver rehearsing from January for presentation in May 2013.

About the Theatre

Broxbourne Civic Theatre has a comfortable auditorium seating nearly 500. You'll find it at Broxbourne Civic Hall, near the junction of Hoddesdon High Street and Cock Lane.

It's right on the doorstep from Cheshunt, Cuffley, Goffs Oak, Waltham Abbey, Waltham Cross and Wormley, close to Enfield, Hertford, Chingford, Epping, North London and Harlow and within reasonable travelling distance of Hertfordshire towns such as Stevenage, Ware, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and Bishops Stortford.

Terrace seats are fully tiered and there is a large licensed bar which opens one hour before evening performances. To avoid the interval rush, you are recommended to order interval drinks from the bar before the show starts.
