FOR THEATRE…

May 2-6

A return of Matthew Bourne is always a treat for dance fans and his daring version of The Red Shoes at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal promises to be full of his trademark fervour, provocation and drama. It’s the story of a girl’s dream to dance, told to a punchy score by Hollywood Bernard Herrmann. Pay a visit, we’re lucky to have it.
