Past Productions and events

 

As Chandeliers has been producing good theatre since 1961, this page will be an ongoing exploration into the past, and it won't be possible to discover photos and posters from every production we've ever produced, however we do have a list all of our productions, and if you click on the information below each poster (if one is on display) you will be-able to see both rehearsal and or production photos associated with that show.
