Theatre company’s exciting plans for the future

Posted on 21st August 2018 | in Community

The NTC (Northumberland Theatre Company) are a touring theatre company who have recently taken over the Dovecote Centre, after leaving the Playhouse in Alnwick. They have been putting on shows for 40 years. They are planning on renting out the studio and another room to local groups/classes.

NTC held an open evening for people to share their views on what the spaces could be used for

After being shown around, we agree it is a great opportunity for people seeking a space for classes, exhibition space, parties and much more. They have already got some brilliant ideas as to how to use the space, such as a cinema which is starting the 14th of Sept, hopefully a pantomime at Christmas time and children’s puppet show on the 7th of Oct.

NTC’s next show will be Heartspur, a version of Henry IV part 1 set in Newcastle with songs by girl bands from the 1960s. The staff described it as, “Hippy Hippy Shakespeare” and it will be performed on 12th of Sept and 2nd of Oct.

If you have got any ideas for what these rooms can be used for, please contact admin@northumberlandtheatre.co.uk .
