Be quick and book tickets for these must-see shows before they sell out

From the highly-anticipated tour of 2:22 A Ghost Story to locally-set favourites Everybody's Talking About Jamie and The Full Monty, these are the hottest shows coming to the North East and Yorkshire this autumn.

2:22 A Ghost Story

Newcastle Theatre Royal
0191 232 7010
The final few tickets remain for this supernatural spectacular. West End phenomenon 2:22 A Ghost Story is heading to Newcastle Theatre Royal this month. Jenny believes her new home is haunted, but her husband Sam doesn’t believe her. They argue with their dinner guests Lauren and Ben and decide to stay up until 2:22 to see if there really is a ghost. This play became London’s must-see theatre event so we’ve got high hopes! Read our interview with the play’s writer Danny Robins, who grew up in Newcastle, here


Sunderland Empire
With its Tony Award-winning book and score, you can bet your bottom dollar that tickets are running low for this show. Annie is forced to live a life of misery at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage until she's chosen to spend a fairytale Christmas with a famous billionaire. But Miss Hannigan has other ideas. Starring Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood (on weekdays), you won’t want to miss this. Don’t leave it ’til Tomorrow, Tomorrow – book your tickets now.

Heathers The Musical
The Bodyguard – The Musical

Heathers The Musical

Darlington Hippodrome
01325 405405
Following two smash hit West End seasons, this comedy-rock musical is based on the cult classic 1989 film starring Winona Ryder. Westerberg High's Veronica Sawyer is just another nobody until she joins the Heathers (the Mean Girls of the 80s). Rebel JD teaches her that it might kill to be a nobody, but it is murder being a somebody.

The Bodyguard – The Musical

Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield
0114 249 6000
International award-winning smash-hit musical The Bodyguard (based on the iconic Whitney Houston film) is back by popular demand. A former Secret Service agent is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker, but they don't expect to fall in love. You’ll be singing all the greatest hits – Saving All My Love, Run to You, Million Dollar Bill, and of course, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Everybody's Talking About Jamie

The Full Monty

Grand Opera House, York
0207 206 1174
Based on the 1997 smash-hit film, this new production is part comedy, part heartbreak. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the film, The Full Monty sees a group of lads trying to regain their dignity and pride. Gaz and his mates are determined to fight back and they’ll bare a little more than they thought they would. It’s starring Eastenders’ Danny Hatchard and The X Factor’s Jake Quickenden.

Everybody's Talking About Jamie

Leeds Grand Theatre
After a record-breaking three-year West End residency this smash-hit and critically-acclaimed musical is proving just as popular on its return to Leeds Grand Theatre. Jamie is 16 and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. He doesn’t quite fit in, in fact he really stands out, but supported by his mum and his friends, Jamie beats the bullies and steps into the spotlight. Funny and feel good, this show also features an all-star cast with Dancing on Ice’s Hayley Tamaddon and Coronation Street’s Shobna Gulati.
