Preview: Pinocchio at Newcastle Theatre Royal

Newcastle Theatre Royal Announce 2023/24 Panto

Get Ready For A New Adventure!


Newcastle Theatre Royal

Tuesday 28 November 2023 until Sunday 14 January 2024.

The doors have not yet opened for 2022/23’s spectacular panto Cinderella but Newcastle Theatre Royal has announced that next year’s show will see a brand new title make its premiere.

Pinocchio will be the newest title from Crossroads Pantomimes, the world’s biggest pantomime producer, and it will run for seven weeks from Tuesday 28 November 2023 – Sunday 14 January 2024.

The show will see celebrated Theatre Royal panto star Danny Adams take centre stage as Pinocchio, along with Clive Webb as toymaker Geppetto and legendary panto dame Chris Hayward as Dame Rita.

Co-written, produced and directed by Newcastle’s own Michael Harrison, Pinocchio will mark Danny and Clive’s eighteenth panto appearance at Newcastle Theatre Royal.

A fabulous cast soon to be announced will recreate all the favourite Pinocchio characters including Stromboli, Jiminy Cricket and The Blue Fairy. With brand-new sets and costumes we’d be lying if we said this isn’t going to be our best panto yet!

Join Danny as he transforms from the famous puppet to a real boy and get ready to see his nose grow every time he tells a lie!

Pinocchio plays Tuesday 28 November 2023 until Sunday 14 January 2024. Tickets are on sale now to Friends of the Theatre Royal; Advantage Members, Groups and Schools can book from Wednesday 23 November and public booking opens on Tuesday 29 November.


This year’s panto – Cinderella ­– opens on Tuesday 29 November 2022 and runs until Sunday 15 January 2023.  Tickets for both shows can be purchased online at or by calling the Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
