Philip Pullman's Grimm Tales
For two nights only, our Youth Section are performing a one act selection of Grimm Tales. You'll meet familiar characters – Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel – and some unexpected ones too. Full of deliciously dark twists and turns, the tales come to life in all their glittering, macabre brilliance. This show will be open to the general public. Tickets are only £5 so please come along and support our very enthusiastic juniors.

Theatre Factory

return for their annual visit with the 3rd incarnation of the Voices of Generation Z.
A selection box of 9 more micro plays by award winning writers, performed by a new generation of the North West's brightest young actors. Funny, emotional, sweet with a few hard centres too.

Summer Youth Workshop
with a slight difference this year. It will run a week later than usual and, to avoid a clash with Gosforth Show, our performance will be on the Sunday afternoon rather than the Saturday (when we will have a day off). More details to follow when we have them.

Sheila's Island, by Tim Firth
will be our autumn play in October 2024 and comes from the author of "Calendar Girls" and "Kinky Boots". Our four ladies are Team C in an outward-bound team-building weekend. Somehow, Sheila has been nominated team leader, and, using her cryptic crossword solving skills, has unwittingly stranded her team on an island in the Lake District. It's a great comedy, but with darker themes.


Thanks to a very generous grant from the    we have been able to replace our 1990s sound system and add a set of radio microphones. We hired it all in for "Oliver!" and that was so successful we thought we should get our own. Its first real outing was for our January Pantomime "Cinderella". And what a difference it made. Fantastic sound.
