Tyne Theatre & Opera House are excited to announce a Halloween screening of cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which will be showing Thursday 31st October 2019. Fancy dress is encouraged for this fun film event that will be raising money for the Tyne Theatre & Opera House Preservation Trust – with all profits from ticket sales going to the Trust.
The Trust continues to work on refurbishing, restoring and preserving the Grade 1 Listed building – with a focus on the auditorium and Victorian stage machinery – to ensure it can be enjoyed by future generations.
Tickets for The Rocky Horror Picture Show screening are on sale now and are priced at £15 adults, £12.50 concessions, £10 students with a vaild ID & groups of 10 or more.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show screening is the latest addition to the theatre’s jam-packed Autumn/Winter programme, with something for everyone to enjoy.
As the go-to venue for stand-up in Newcastle upon Tyne, in the coming months the theatre will welcome some of the biggest names in comedy, with James Acasterreturning for his third completely sold out Tyne Theatredate of 2019. Other comedy favourites coming to the theatre include Josh Widdicombe, Daniel Sloss, Ben Elton, Ardal O’Hanlon and more.
Upcoming music acts span a whole range of genres from folk to funk, including the hugely influential Average White Band, indie-pop legend Lloyd Cole, folk stalwart Al Stewart, much-loved local sibling duo Cattle & Cane – and Classical music fans can enjoy K&K Philharmonic performing ‘Salzburg Mozart Gala’ as part of their first ever visit to the UK.
The Tyne Theatre firmly believe that a trip to the theatre should be enjoyed by the whole family, and they round up 2019 with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Tabby McTat and Starlight Theatre’s rollickingproduction of The Wind in the Willows. Of course, Enchanted Entertainment return with this year’s Christmas panto Aladdin, starring local favorite Charlie Richmond and with talented X-Factor star, Marcus Collins, announced to play the Genie. More stars will be announced very soon.
Also showing over the festive period, the Russian State Ballet return to Tyne Theatre for one night only with their production of Swan Lake. Their 2017 performance of the same ballet was a complete sell-out, so early booking is recommended to avoid missing out!
Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “Tyne Theatre & Opera House is on track for another record year in 2019, with October, November and December set to be our busiest months. We have some wonderful shows and I’m very proud of our programme – just by coming to see a show here, customers are helping to keep our beautiful theatre alive.”
