Supporting Northern Stage

Please note this is my own blog post and Northern Stage have not asked me nor do they know I have written this. 

Northern Stage has a special place in my heart as it was the first theatre that allowed me press access for my blog.  It was also thanks to Northern Stage that I was able to volunteer with them at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

According to Northern Stage,

Northern Stage is a registered charity. A theatre where ideas meet and futures change – where we reach beyond the ordinary every time.

It is an inspirational and creative hub, every time I go I experience something new and exciting.  Every show I have reviewed has been different and pushes boundaries in the industry, I truly feel that I can’t see performances like this anywhere else.

You may not know this but Northern Stage is home to 3  stages which are available to hire. I belive that Stage 1 and Stage 2 is all one theatre they have just been cleverly split up but can be used as one space.

Stage 1 is Northern Stage’s main house theatre space with a seated capacity of 447 and is available to hire for community performances, conferences, presentations and award ceremonies.

Every performance I have seen at Stage 1 has always been blown me away, performances like Last Ship, Wasteland, Toast and Frisky and Mannish. It has always been a big performance and left a big impact on me when leaving the venue.

Stage 2 is a studio theatre, great for community performances, lectures and workshops. I have seen performances like Status, Shape of Pain and Under Milk Wood. These pieces are thought provoking and experimental in the performance techiqnues.

Stage 3 is a smaller performance space that renovated during summer 2016. It can be used for community productions, receptions and private parties.

The whole team at Northern Stage are really friendly and welcoming. As soon as you walk in, the box office staff are there to great with you with a smile.

Northern Stage is not just a theatre, you can hold events, parties, lectures etc it is a creative hub for arts and culture in the North East.

They also support North East Theatre and young people starting out in the theatre world. It is more than just a venue to see a performance. Please visit after this is all over.
