Director Joanne Johnson says: “Most
people know the Tyne Theatre & Opera House for comedians and musicals, but
we pride ourselves on keeping our programme varied and love to welcome shows
that are a little out of the ordinary! A Victorian Opera House is probably not
the first place you’d imagine watching a Circus, but Cirque Berserk! is an
experience designed specifically for theatre, and we can’t wait for this
breath-taking show to take over ours.”
