This Year's Show
Gateshead Stadium Panto return this December for their second year at Gateshead International Stadium, bringing with them their unique and popular brand of family festive entertainment, which showcases the best of professional theatre talent from the region and celebrates Geordie culture in a totally inclusive sing-along show.
After a run of two decades at Newcastle’s historic Tyne Theatre, the company (formerly known as Newcastle Panto Ltd) moved over the water last year to become Gateshead’s first professional pantomime in a collaboration with Gateshead Council, which involved the panto company designing and building a bespoke 800-seater indoor auditorium at the stadium.
Back this Christmas, the company will take audiences on a magical journey with their production of Aladdin. Such is the popularity of the company’s Christmas panto productions, it pulls professional actors back to the North East from all around the world just to perform on home-turf over the festive period. Some shows for this year’s production sold out in March, and four extra performances have been added to meet demand.
