Preview: The Railway Children at Newcastle People’s Theatre

A beloved children’s classic pulls into the People’s Theatre next week

The Railway Children 

by E. Nesbit, adapted by Mike Kenny

Newcastle People’s Theatre

Tuesday 16 – Saturday 20 July 2024 

All aboard for Mike Kenny’s delightful adaptation of E. Nesbit’s The Railway Children, the much-loved story of family, adventure, and trains!

When their father suddenly leaves under mysterious circumstances, Bobbie, Peter, Phyllis and their mother must move to a small cottage in rural Yorkshire where life is very different.

The children meet new friends, save the day and divert disasters, and along the way discover a world full of imagination, love and resilience.

Actors Ashton Matthews, Joe Moore and Stephanie Moore who play the Waterbury children Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis took a trip to Tanfield Railway last month where its heritage steam train proved to be the perfect co-star for some photographs (link below)!

The Railway Children captures all of the angst and exhilarations of childhood, and promises to be a heartwarming summer treat for all ages.

The Railway Children runs from Tuesday 16 – Saturday 20 July on the Main Stage.
