The Customs House: REHEARSALS IN FULL SWING AHEAD OF PANTO LAUNCH

It’s show time! The curtain is set to rise on this year’s panto at The Customs House this week and rehearsals are in full swing.

More than 25,000 tickets have already been snapped up for Snow White, which is looking to break the audience record set last year by Beauty and the Beast, which was seen by more than 29,000 people.

And while the finishing touches are being put to this year’s production, next year’s panto has also been announced. Tickets for Rapunzel go on sale on Thursday, November 28 – the date The Customs House officially celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Snow White was the first panto to be performed at The Customs House when it opened in 1994 and is being brought back for the first time as part of the anniversary celebrations.

Theatre: Bobby Robson Saved My Life

3BE4B4DC-DB07-46FF-B551-1F4C53B8671B

Bobby Robson Saved my life as a new play by Tom Kelly which celebrates the legacy of one of the most loved managers in football history. A true legend and amazing personality.

I am heading to The Customs House on my birthday, 16th July to see this play which I am sure is going to be a very amazing and emotional filled journey. Last year we had the fantastic documentary Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager which was a brilliant tribute to the great man, showing all his best qualities. I seriously cannot wait to see this play and I just know it is really going to be a lovely birthday treat seeing something inspired by a true legend and hero of mine.

The play will feature three different stories and each performance will be in aid of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation which is an incredible charity founded in his memory to help find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.

North East Pantomimes 2018!

Last year I put a list together of all the Pantomimes taking place in and around the North East. This year I thought I would put it together a lot earlier, so hopefully it will help raise awareness which Pantos are on during the festive season!

(If any of the venues would like me to come and review the show I would be more than happy to do that!)

Show Date: Saturday 16th December 2017 (6:30pm)

Many years ago now I remember seeing The Lambton Worm pantomime at The Customs House in South Shields and how different it was talking on a folk song from Sunderland and transforming it into a very unique Pantomime. When they announced doing it again this year due to it being the 150th anniversary for the song, I just knew I had to go and see this show!
