A Guide to Newcastles Pantomimes

Your Guide to Newcastle Pantomimes 2019

As December barrels forward we start to feel the excitement coming when the Newcastle pantomimes are in rehearsals. Each one offers a different style, but each one also is usually well worth watching. Whether you’re looking for the traditional “he’s behind you” scripting or a more contemporary take on a well-known story. Newcastle’s theatres have all bases covered with their wintry offerings.

The 2019 Newcastle Pantomime lineup

We’ll start off with the UK’s fastest selling Pantomime at the Theatre Royal.

Theatre Royal, Newcastle – Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast Theatre Royal Newcastle

The Theatre Royal plays host to the spellbinding tale of Beauty and the Beast. Starring Theatre Royal favourite panto stars Danny Adams, Clive Webb and Chris Hayward, who are returning for their 15th year. The pantomime is set to be a top-quality spectacular production.

Join Belle on her adventure as she unleashes the softer side within the Beast!

From past experience Qdos Pantomimes are full of special effects, amazing costumes and stage sets that rival London’s West End. Tickets sell out quickly for this one and it is worthwhile supporting the Theatre Royal to make sure you bag these hot tickets.

Northern Stage, Newcastle – The Snow Queen

Northern Stage isn’t your traditional Newcastle pantomime, but one of the best family-focused Theatre shows. This Hans Christian Anderson classic is produced by the same team that brought us James and the Giant Peach, Alice in Wonderland and A Christmas Carol (last year).

Join Gerda on her adventure to find her missing friend Kai, who has fallen under the spell of the Snow Queen. Can Gerda rescue him before they’re stuck in an eternal Winter?

From past experience, the Northern Stage Productions are a side step away from any other pantomime/show. It’s not really fair to compare this to any other show, apart from their own previous productions! The stage sets are amazingly immersive while being full of quirky magical effects.

Tickets Prices: from £10
Dates: Tue 30 Nov 2019 – Sun 4 Jan 2020
Running Time: Approx. 2 hrs 15 mins, including interval
Address: Northern Stage, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7RH
