2018 at the Theatre

Here we go with my run down of everything I managed to catch at the Theatre in 2018, this includes plenty of UK Touring shows coming to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and the Sunderland Empire. I squeezed in a few London trips and even another New York trip thanks to my marathon place!

In 2016 I managed to see 31 shows. In 2017 I managed to see 36 shows. My total for this year 2018 was 26 different shows. Not as many as the previous two years, but still a very impressive number. Check out which shows here!

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!)

One of my all time favourite actors recently announced a truly incredible tour, a one man show on stage with Sir Ian McKellen taking us through his career and treating us to his most known and loved characters. He is turning 80 in 2019 and has decided to go to 80 different venues across the UK.

Tickets for Newcastle at the Theatre Royal went on sale this morning at 9:00am and by 9:02am I had front row tickets, this was the friends of the theatre pre-sale and they are selling out very fast!

Stage Door: An Officer and a Gentleman Cast

After the fantastic new musical version of An Officer and a Gentleman I just had to pop to the stage door to meet these fantastic performers, who I am certainly a big fan of having seen them in many different shows.

Ian was previously in Beautiful in the West End. Jonny was in the UK tour of Annie. Emma was in the UK tour of Annie Get Your Gun. They were all just lovely and doing the stage door on touring versions of the show are so stress free compared to the West End!

Just incase you missed it click here to read my review of this amazing show, with these incredible people in the leading roles!
