A new year ahead and lots to look forward to     

A new year ahead and lots to look forward to We have some brilliant shows to captivate audiences of all ages, guaranteed to whet your theatrical appetite.
After finishing another successful Panto run, we start off our year by inviting you to jump on board the broom with a very popular witch and her cat in Tall Stories’ fun-filled adaption of Room on the Broom, the best-selling picture book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler.
Then, join us for a night of music and comedy with the sensational Mike Doyle and his live band in an evening guaranteed to delight and entertain in equal measure.
Take a step back in time to the BBC’s Paris Studios and experience the hilarious Round the Horne. From 1965 to 1968 there wasn’t a bigger radio programme in Britain than this ground-breaking show. See this comedy classic live on stage 50 years on.
Next, we ask you to prepare yourself for a road-trip full of fun adventures. The brand-new Peppa Pig’s “Best Day ever!” is a live show packed full of songs, games and laughter. From castles to caves, dragons to dinosaurs and ice-creams to muddy puddles – there is something for all the family and their friends to enjoy, including Miss Rabbit, Mr Bull, Suzy Sheep, Gerald Giraffe and more!
It really is going to be the best day ever for Peppa Pig fans!
Moving onto our next thrilling drama is A Murder is announced. Miss Marple has been called in to unravel the mystery of the killer at Chipping Clehorn. Immerse yourself in this Agatha Christie classic.
There is something dark lurking in the theatre. Enter a nightmarish world, full of thrilling twists and turns as Ghost Stories invites you to immerse yourself in your deepest fears.
Set to thrill the New Theatre with fear, this international stage phenomenon comes direct from the West End in its first ever UK tour. This is not for the fainthearted, but will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Please be advised that Ghost Stories contains moments of extreme shock and tension. The show is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 15. We strongly advise those of a nervous disposition to think very seriously before attending.

This year we welcome some truly amazing “one-nighters” and Jive Talkin is no exception, Wherever the tribute group play they receive superb plaudits; "The Soundalike quality is quite sensational" (The Stage), "Amazing similarity to the real Bee Gees" (Wakefield Express), Absolutely Brilliant (Maurice Gibb), WOW (Barry Gibb). Sing along for a 2 hour explosion of music and vocal harmony, this is a night not to be missed.
In keeping with sensational sounds, we are hosting Festival of Diversity XVII, Malaysia: The Journey, an original stage production brought to you by the Malaysian Students; Society of Cardiff University (MSSCF). This festival feature various forms of art and music native to their beautiful homeland. The show details the journey of Malaysia; from its glorious inception, through its troubled times, to the beautiful, diverse and harmonious haven that we know now.
More relevant than ever, it is time to unravel the puzzle in An Inspector Calls, When Inspector Goole arrives unexpectedly at the prosperous Birling family home, their peaceful dinner party is shattered by his investigations into the death of a young woman. His startling revelations shake the very foundations of their lives and challenge us all to examine our consciences.
And finally, seeing up through to the end of March 2020 we have the brilliant F.r.i.e.n.d.s.i.c.a.l, a unique new parody musical inspired by the gang in Friends, the iconic TV show. With original new songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me, When Were You Under Me?’, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention! What could possibly go wrong?
