North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

We had to get our theatre enlarged for the HUUUUGE giant who’s taking up residence here for our Christmas Panto! And now the scaffolding’s gone and we’ve got a MASSIVE magic beanstalk inside!

“Magic beans, Jack? Now, what are we supposed to do with those?!”

Who’d be a mother? You send your son out to the shops and he comes back with a handful of magic beans!

Yes, it’s the festive season once more and our Jack And The Beanstalk explodes onto the stage in a colourful, all-singing, all-dancing spectacular.

We’ve got a lavishly costumed wisecracking Dame Nelly (played once again by People’s Theatre favourite Steve Robertson), her cheeky, chirpy lad Jack, and a whole host of friends to take you on a thrilling trip up the beanstalk!

This fun-filled and hilarious take on the classic tale is written by award-winning playwright Philip Meeks, who is himself a professional pantomime dame of many years standing.

Like the beanstalk, The People’s Panto has grown and grown in scale and popularity over recent years and shows sell out quicker and quicker. Book soon to avoid disappointment – some performances are full-to-bursting already!

And if you’re looking ahead to the new year, we’ve got Agatha Christie whodunit The Unexpected Guest to chase away the January blues and Greek tragedy Antigone in February. Tickets are on sale now – they’d made the ideal Christmas present for a theatre-loving friend or relative!
