Miss Saigon
Until Saturday, November 17, 2018

Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production of Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary musical has been a recent smash hit in the West End and promises to deliver equally impressive results during its residency in Sunderland. In the last days of the Vietnam War, 17-year-old Kim is forced to work in a Saigon bar, where she meets, falls in love with and is inevitably torn apart from American GI, Chris. But will they ever be reunited? 


Don't Forget The Birds
Until Wednesday, November 14, 2018

A true story performed by real-life mother and daughter, Cheryl and Abigail Byron, this award-winning drama tells the first-hand account (based on a true story) of how prison took a mother from a daughter – and their heart-lifting journey to make up for lost time. An insightful, poignant and inspiring look at life after prison. 

Queen's Hall Arts Centre, Hexham
Cilla The Musical
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 - Saturday, November 24, 2018

This heart-warming musical adaptation of the acclaimed ITV mini-series about Cilla Black (by BAFTA award winner Jeff Pope) follows the extraordinary life of the ordinary teenage girl from Liverpool and her rocky, yet spectacular, rise to fame – all played out against the ultimate soundtrack to the 60s.

Darlington Hippodrome
The 39 Steps
Friday, November 23, 2018 - Saturday, November 24, 2018

Both John Buchan’s 1915 novel and Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary film are wonderfully parodied in this irreverently playful tribute to the whole genre of British thriller fiction. Will tweed-clad action hero Richard Hannay escape from a web of international espionage? Go along and see. 

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Gather round all lovers of a good ghost story, because Phoenix Theatre’s November offering is sure to give you the Shivers. If you think there’s nothing spookier than exchanging terrifying tales in the darkness, than why not add the haunting sounds of the violin into the mix and feel your blood chill. Not for the faint-hearted. 

Phoenix Theatre, Blyth
