 Newcastle’s People’s Theatre are absolutely delighted to announce that it is re-opening its doors at last!


They had no idea when they closed in March 2020 that they’d be gone so long, but the spirit of the People’s has stayed alive and well. Members have supported each other online with events including Zoom quizzes and play readings, plus loads of fundraising activities.


They’ve continued to bring great theatre to the community, staging three outdoor productions and producing their very first online production to rave reviews.


The doors reopen as they return to on-stage productions, starting in September with Charlotte Keatley’s highly-acclaimed My Mother Said I Never Should. Four generations of a family - Doris, Margaret, Jackie, and Rosie - encounter and struggle with motherhood, marriage and work in this powerful and compassionate drama.


They then head to Elizabethan England in Blackadder II, bringing three of the best and funniest episodes of this legendary BBC comedy to our stage.


The comedy continues with a fabulously farcical retelling of Sherlock Holmes’ most famous case The Hound Of The Baskervilles, and warm and witty festive comedy The Flint Street Nativity. 


And after a hiatus from Pantoland last year, they’ve got a hilarious and fun-filled Sleeping Beauty in store for December. Don’t snooze, though, tickets always sell fast for the People’s Panto!


In order to ensure the theatre can keep up-to-date with Government guidance and what the audiences have told them about their experiences coming back to the People’s, they are opening booking in stages. Right now tickets for My Mother Said I Never Should and Blackadder II are available to book, plus Sleeping Beauty. Booking for the other plays will open shortly.


And as everyone eases out of restrictions, the theatre appreciates that everyone will be going at a different pace. To help audiences return to the People’s confidently, you have the option of some socially distanced performances and flexible exchanges so you won’t miss out whatever happens. 


The theatre explained “Over the last difficult and uncertain seventeen months we’ve been absolutely bowled over by the generosity and support from our audiences, members, friends and supporters. Our motto over this time has been that the phoenix will rise and we can’t wait to get back to what we love – making great theatre and entertaining audiences!”
