We are pleased to announce that we will be touring two full shows this year.
For the autumn we will be touring
a new play with music by Bob Shannon: The story of Harry Hotspur and the battle of Shrewsbury, set in gangland Newcastle in 1963, ‘Henry IV Part 1’ meets ‘Get Carter’ meets ‘Six-Five Special’: a jukebox tragedy! Using the very best of Shakespeare’s words alongside modern dialogue and truly memorable songs from the girl bands of the sixties, this new play from North East writer Bob Shannon has a terrific plot, fiery characters, marvellous music and plenty of humour and drama. Suitable for everyone over 13 this show will tour September and October 2018
This Winter 2018 we will be touring:
‘The Little Girl Who Danced To Every Mood’
- adapted from Helena Nyblom's Scandinavian children's adventure by new writer Laura Jayne Ayres who has toured as an actor in several shows with NTC. Through dance, song and exciting physical theatre, we follow our heroine on her journey to find her true place in the world. Meeting grouchy farmers, a flock of flamenco dancing pigeons and finally a handsome prince - but is the life of a princess something our little maid truly wants? And will she still be allowed to dance? Suitable for family audiences of all ages, this show will tour December 2018 and January 2019.
We are very excited about both shows. If you are interested in booking either show please ring our new team member Natalie Barnes on 01665 713655, she can also be reached via email on [email protected]
We will also be appearing in varying other guises so watch this space. We hope to see you soon, out on tour or at our new premises.
