Sunderland Stages 

Welcome to Sunderland Stages new Autumn/Winter season; we are absolutely jam packed full of unforgettable theatre shows and performances at the likes of The Peacock, Pop Recs Ltd, Miss Tina’s, Arts Centre Washington and many other brilliant spaces and places in Sunderland.

Sunderland is a real culturally thriving hot pot with the Sunderland 2021 campaign officially in full flow; it really feels like anything is possible. This season, we mirror that excitement and possibility, showcasing a selection of unmissable shows. Highlights this season include First Person – pop on your head-set, enter a virtual reality world and compete to win, I Hate Alone – an unmissable theatre gig and Disaster party – 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…so check out our programme and we look forward to welcoming you to a Sunderland Stages show!
