ESPA is an amalgamation of East Surrey Operatic Society and The Opera Club of Reigate and Redhill. ESPA was formed when the two societies merged in early 2014.
Today we are putting on two productions each year at The Harlequin Theatre in Redhill with our youth section, YESPA, putting on a production every summer at the same venue.Read more » How To Join ESPA
Parade - 8th to 11th November 2023
The tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder is brought to theatrical life.
Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colourful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For a New World, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County), Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America's history.
Daring, innovative and bold, Parade is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten.
