Darlington Hippodrome spring 2024 season brochure launched


The new spring season of shows at Darlington Hippodrome includes great comedy, drama, dance and a host of music.

The curtain has gone up on Darlington Hippodrome’s new spring season of shows which is packed with an array of showstopping performances guaranteed to fire up audiences through the opening months of 2024.

With the annual festive family panto just days away from opening, the venue is celebrating a hugely successful year of theatre. Starring pop sensation and musical theatre star Gareth gates and Jenny Ryan from ITVs The Chase, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is breaking all box office records and is expected to be seen by over 800,000 people by the time it closes on Sunday 31 December.

With a new line up of shows into 2024, Darlington Hippodrome has once again affirmed its commitment to present an exciting and wide-ranging programme of shows. The new spring programme includes traditional family favourites, breath-taking dance productions, hard-hitting drama and some toe-tapping musicals as part of its extensive list.

In January we see the return of the Varna International Ballet who will present Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 January.

If stand-up comedy is your thing then look no further than a night with Ed Byrne on Sunday 4 February, Frankie Boyle on Friday 1 March and Stewart Lee on Saturday 16 March.

Also in March the Icarus Theatre Collective presents a brand new stage production of Julius Caesar using state-of-the-art digital technology and classic theatrical magic.

Opera lovers will be treated to two of the very best as the Ukrainian Opera and Ballet presents Verdi’s La Traviata on Thursday 21 March and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly on Friday 22 March.

Musical theatre fans will be delighted with the wildly satirical Oh What A Lovely War from Thursday 28 to Saturday 30 March and the international hit musical Kinky Boots at the start of May presented by DarlingtonOS.

Looking a little further ahead for drama buffs, we present a different take on the Oscar Wilde classic The Importance of Being Earnest, a brand new production of School for Scandal, traditional farce with What The Butler Saw, the thrilling Haunting of Blaine Manor and the all-time favourite The Mousetrap.

The new season will see a host of familiar names on the bill including Giovanni Pernice, Anton Du Beke, The Halle, Dr Michael Mosley, Smokey, Dear Zoo, Ben Fogle, Justin Hayward, and Sooty to name but a few.
