Bugsy Malone
By Gala Theatre Stage School

Tues 27 May & Wed 28 May, 7.00pm (+ Wed 2.00pm)
A pie-flinging, pinstripe-wearing, pint-sized classic, Bugsy guarantees laughter and a terrific musical score.

  The Elves & The Shoemaker

Sunday 15 June, 2.30pm
From his kitchen workshop, Sam makes terrible shoes and tries to sell them online. They’re so bad that no-one wants them. Then one night, two tiny visitors climb in through the window and start cutting and stitching and gluing… and Sam’s life is never quite the same again. Following their sell-out show The Enormous Turnip, the eccentric Stuff and Nonsense Theatre return with an up-to-date, size 13½ re-telling of this favourite story featuring stunning puppets, music and surprises aplenty. For everyone aged 3 and above. Adapted and directed by Niki McCretton.

Emily Brown & The Thing
By Tall Stories

Could you get to sleep with a Thing outside your window? From the company that brought you The Gruffalo comes this brand new show, based on the hugely popular book by Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train your Dragon) and Neal Layton. One evening, Emily and her old grey rabbit Stanley find a Thing crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep, so the duo set off on incredible adventures to find something to settle him. Original music, physical storytelling and lots of comedy combine to create a fantastic adventure for those aged 3+ and their grown-ups.

£10 (£8 conc), £32 Family Ticket


A Gala Theatre Production

Thur 27 November 2014 - Saturday 3 January 2015
Written by Ben Crocker
Directed by Gareth Tudor-Price

We are delighted to announce that our spectacular pantomime is the mystical and madcap tale of Aladdin, a show full of North Eastern promise.

Telling the story of poor Widow Twankey and her two sons, the hunky Aladdin, and daft lad Wishee Washee (Paul Hartley); and evil baddie Abanazar (Neil Armstrong) trying to get his hands on the magic lamp and its three wishes.

Created in the heart of Durham, Gala’s fabulous family pantomime comes complete with a terrific mix of mayhem and live music, laughter and surprises. Let Durham’s pantomime family make your festive season complete. It’s a wild, magical carpet ride of a show and tickets are already selling well, so book early to avoid disappointment.

From £8.00
