We host a range of plays, pantomime and burlesque shows in our Stage Room and work in collaboration with various stage companies. Lambdog is our theatre company in residence. Established in 2013, they are a professional theatre company, working to create magical theatrical experiences for children and their families.
Recent productions include:
- Northern International Theatre’s production of David Hare’s ‘Via Dolorosa: A personal journey through Israel and Palestine’ and ‘The Burma Play’ by Pamela Brough Sandiford – a sell-out performance.
- The Genesis Theatre Group’s production of ‘Fame the Musical’ with lots of songs, dance and comedy; burlesque shows from Silken Burlesque Varietease and the National Clown Theatre Laughter Funshow.
- And of course pantomimes, such as ‘Aladdin’ and ‘Pinocchio’, presented by Lambdog Theatre Company and Rotten Park Road.
We also have a popular Youth Theatre with workshops running in two sessions each Saturday, the first for 7-10 year olds and the second for 11-16 year olds. Activities include acting, singing and movement and dance, together with sessions on stagecraft, props and scenery making and, later for the seniors, lighting and sound.
