Preview: Stomp at Newcastle Theatre Royal
A STOMPING GREAT RETURN TO TOWN FOR THE BIN LID KINGS
Newcastle Theatre Royal
Thursday 16th – Saturday 18th August 2018
Fresher, faster and funnier than ever, the multi-award winning theatrical spectacle Stomp is set to make a return to Newcastle Theatre Royal as the unstoppable smash touches down.
A unique combination of percussion, dance and comedy, Stomp is a stage spectacle in a genre of its own. Combining dance, comedy and music into a theatrical experience like no other, Stomp takes familiar objects like newspapers, bins, plastic bags and even the kitchen sink and uses them to create a universal language of rhythm and movement that’s playful, thrilling and exploding with energy.
Back in Newcastle by popular demand, the show was born in Brighton, UK, in the summer of 1991 and from humble beginnings, Stomp has grown into a truly global phenomenon that will set your toes tapping and your pulse racing. From acclaimed performances at the Edinburgh Fringe to large outdoor events, the legend of Stomp grew in ambition and scope, gaining legions of fans along the way and becoming the theatrical sensation it is today.
The Stomp cast performed to packed Newcastle Theatre Royal audiences in 2000 and 2016 and their talents were showcased in the closing ceremony at the 2012 London Olympics.
Stomp comes to Newcastle Theatre Royal Thursday 16th – Saturday 18th August 2018 playing evenings at 7.30pm, matinees on Fri 2pm and Sat 2.30pm. Tickets from £14.00 can be purchased online at www.theatreroyal.co.uk or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 08448 11 21 21 (Calls cost 7ppm plus your phone company’s access charge.)
