We are pleased to announce that we will be touring three shows this year.
In May we are re-touring
'Dracula... The Travesty!'
Devised and created by NTC actor and writer, Stewart Howson, from the novel by Bram Stoker.
Light, funny and daft but with strong storytelling and some genuinely scary moments. This is Gothic storytelling at its best: imaginative, atmospheric and physically exciting.
Appealing to family audiences it features all the anticipated elements of the story: wolves, bats and the Brides of Dracula with plenty of audience participation, humour and music.
In the autumn we will be touring
‘The Stars Look Down’
From the classic novel by A J Cronin freely adapted by Alex Ferguson.
‘The cage dropped. It dropped suddenly, swiftly, into the hidden darkness. And the sound of its falling rose out of that darkness like a great sigh which mounted towards the furthermost stars.’
An uplifting family saga about a miner’s son who resolves to fight the profiteering that killed so many through underground accidents and starvation, and the injustice that wears down families and communities.
A physical theatre version of this classic 30s novel set in the North East exploring the life of young Davie Fenwick as he strives to gain decent wages and conditions for the pitmen. He falls in love with the coal owner’s daughter but is eventually disillusioned of ever achieving justice after a preventable pit disaster claims the lives of many men.
“..vivid, versatile and amazingly forceful..” Reviewsgate.com
“…a resounding critical success, breathing new life into Cronin's timeless tale.”
Suitable for everyone over 13 this show will tour September and October 2019.
This Winter 2019 we will be touring
‘The Snow Queen’
- A new musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved fairytale by Gillian Juckes and Rick Juckes who have many years experience of writing drama, music and songs for theatre, TV and radio.
How far would you go to save your best friend? Gerda and Kay are the very best, better than best friends. When Kay is swept away by the Snow Queen to the Land of Snow and Ice, Gerda knows exactly what to do. She must set off on a journey to find him.
