Our Junior Group take to the stage with this 'space-tacular' musical comedy. As a group of students plan to make camp for the night, an alien spaceship from the Planet Zark is preparing to enter the earth's atmosphere in search of a new place to live. As (the rather inept) Captain Krok and his crew begin to take hostages, the fate of the human race is left in the hands of 2 young girls

Support for the Playhouse Appeal has been fantastic and we would like to thank everyone who has donated so far helping us toward our target. Since closing the doors we have hosted a number of fundraising events at our temporary home at the Alnwick Lindisfarne Annex.

In December we had two festive concerts, Christmas Carols from the Alnwick Playhouse Concert Band on Sat 8th followed by a Carol Concert from the Alnwick Playhouse Community Choir on the 10th.

Tickets were free with a suggested donation of £10 which included a selection of sweet and savoury festive treats, including mince pies and mulled wine. Both were well attended and raised over £650.00 for the Playhouse appeal.

The Duchess’s Community High School performed their show, Christmas Epiphany on the 19th & 20th December at the school, donating all the proceeds to the ‘Show Your Support Campaign’.

It was a fantastic production with a very talented cast. The Playhouse staff supported the production technically and with Front of House management.

Thanks to everyone involved!

‘All the money we raise from the show is going towards the Playhouse and contributing to the renovation. For all of us this means a lot because we all love performing on the Playhouse stage and working with the Playhouse staff. We have really missed being on the Playhouse stage this year and can’t wait to be back when the Playhouse re-opens!’
