Theatre Royal, Wakefield
The Theatre Royal Wakefield is a theatre in Wakefield, England, which dates back to 1894.[2] The theatre was originally known as the Theatre Royal and Opera House and dates back to the 1770s.[2] Today's theatre was designed in 1894 as the Wakefield Opera House, by theatre architect Frank Matcham, and was built for a price of £13,000.[2] The Theatre Royal Wakefield is the smallest remaining of Matcham's theatres.[3] In the 1920s the theatre had to compete against cinemas and in the summer live shows were replaced by films. In 1954 the theatre closed and became a picture house, and a few years later, a bingo hall. However, in 1981 it reopened as the Wakefield Theatre Royal under chairman Sir Rodney Walker. Support was given to revitalise the theatre from city leaders and music and drama amateurs and professionals.[2] Theatre Royal Wakefield operates as both a producing and a receiving house

Black-Eyed Susan; or, All in the Downs is a comic play in three acts by Douglas Jerrold. The story concerns a heroic sailor, William, who has been away from England for three years fighting in the Napoleonic Wars. Meanwhile, his wife, Susan, has fallen on hard times and is being harassed by her crooked landlord uncle. A smuggler named Hatchet offers to pay her debts because he wants her for himself; he tries to persuade her that William is dead. Soon after William returns to solve this problem, his drunken, dastardly captain tries to seduce Susan. William, not recognising his captain from behind, strikes him with his cutlass. He is court-martialled for attacking a senior officer and sentenced to be hanged. But it turns out that he had been discharged from the navy before he struck his captain, so all ends well. Much of the humour in the piece centers on the sailor's nautical dialect, combined with his noble character

Artistic Director
An artistic director is the executive of an arts organization, particularly in a theatre company, who handles the organization's artistic direction.[1][2][3] They are generally a producer and director, but not in the sense of a mogul, since the organization is generally a non-profit organization. The artistic director of a theatre company is the individual with the overarching artistic control of the theatre's production choices, directorial choices, and overall artistic vision. In smaller theatres, the artistic director may be the founder of the theatre and the primary director of its plays. In larger non-profit theatres (often known in Canada
Canada
and the United States
United States
as regional theatres), the artistic director may be appointed by the board of directors. Overview[edit] The artistic director of a theatre is similar to the musical director of a symphony, the primary person responsible for planning a theatre's season
