Sunderland Stages returns with a corker of a season

Sunderland Stages are on a mission to bring unique theatre and performance to amazing places and spaces in Sunderland; attend a show and you know you’re in for a really good but different day or night out. We’ve had shows in car parks and churches, a theatre pub quiz in a pub and so much more!

A jam packed new season of unforgettable shows will take place at the likes of The Peacock, Pop Recs Ltd, Miss Tina’s, Arts Centre Washington and many other brilliant spaces in Sunderland.

For the first show of the season, on 14th September, Mr Drayton brings his first Record Player of the season to Pop Recs Ltd. Comedian, music-aficionado BBC Producer/Presenter and know-it-all Mr Drayton, offers you the opportunity to enjoy The Futureheads’ classic album in its entirety, end to end ; grab a drink or two while he drops the needle on this good vinyl.

This 2004 debut captures the fire, energy and class of a band, one of Sunderland’s finest on the very top of their game. And what better way to kick off this Sunderland Stages season than with the actual, real life Futureheads in conversation over a pint!?

Other highlights this season include First Person by Zest Theatre – pop on your head-set, enter a virtual reality world and compete to win, I Hate Alone by Middle Child– an unmissable theatre gig, think Thelma and Louise x 11 and Disaster party by theatre hot property fanSHEN – a show where you, the audience are the actors and play out the story (over some fish and chips!).

Our family programme is also bumper packed this season with an Icelandic magical puppet show Troll as part of TakeOff Festival and our show stopping Canny Carnival for under 5s and families with a cracking festival line-up!

And that is only the beginning…check out our programme and we look forward to welcoming you to a Sunderland Stages show!
