The Geordie Panto Co return for our third consecutive year at Gateshead International Stadium, this year with the ever popular story of Cinderella. Of course, our versio has our signature Geordie twist, meaning this is a tale of a simple lass from Dunston, who makes good with a well-to-do lad from "owa the watter" (Jesmond!). Of course there'll be laughs galore from Numpty Norman as loveable (but not very bright) Buttons and Company founder, director and writer, Maxie Peters, will be adding glamour and fashion *ahem* as one half of the Ugly Sisters. Naturally, we'll be delighting you during the show with our "world famous" 12 Days of Christmas. This is an all-live bumper pack of festive family fun 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 in 2017 to become Gateshead’s first professional pantomime in a collaboration with Gateshead Council, which involved the panto company designing and building a bespoke 700-seater indoor auditorium within the main facilities building at Gateshead Stadium.
The venue move has allowed the company to bring the Christmas theatre-going experience bang up to date for families, with a modern auditorium, extensive facilities and refreshments, and excellent transport links. The Stadium site boasts FREE onsite parking for hundreds of cars which is a big bonus for families negotiating the Christmas crowds.
We are proud to present a panto like no other delighting audiences from babies right up to our favourite customer, Mavis Atkins who is the amazing age of 111 (regulars will understand!!)
