The Classic Tale: Pinocchio Takes the Stage at Theatre Royal


Our writer, Laura, headed along to the show last night and it sounds like the whole family had a great time!

Pinocchio- a must-see family treat this Christmas will run at The Theatre Royal, Newcastle, from Tue 28 Nov 2023 – Sun 14 Jan 2024.

The show sees 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. North East singer-songwriter Joe McElderry also made a triumphant return this year as Jiminy Cricket.

We felt so lucky to get this opportunity to enjoy the start of Advent together watching this hilarious show together.

My daughters were crying with laughter at the many slap-stick moments curated for a family audience. But, don't worry, Danny creates many opportunities to make the adults chuckle, too.

From awe-inspiring fire displays, incredible costumes and a fantastic script, you will certainly leave with a smile on your face, sure of having a real feel-good experience.
