Stop!...The Play
Date: 16th February 2019
Details:  Five neurotic actors, one stressed Stage Manager, a crazed director, an invisible playwright and an escaped monkey are desperately rehearsing the world’s worst play, which keeps being rewritten. And every rewrite is more hilariously terrible than the one before. And although it really shouldn’t, somehow, the show manages to go on.

The Northern Comedy Theatre return to The Citadel with a new comedy from the pen of David Spicer. Stop!…The Play is a hilarious farce that is a cross between Noises Off! And The Play That Goes Wrong.

Live/Wire the AC/DC Show
Date: 22nd February 2019
Details:  Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rock music’s greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls’ and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll in a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing.

Both Bon (Dave) and Brian (Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and with the Rhythm section ‘locked in’ the freedom of the stage and the music is given to Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detail in appearance, energy and his note for note heartfelt renditions in a night of bedevilled Rock and Roll.

The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in ! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados! We’d be hung, drawn and quartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in Black, Rosie, Highway to hell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing…we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE

A Square World
Date: 24th February 2019
Details:  A Square World is a story of friends who enjoy the same routine day after day, each day is the same until an unexpected change is forced upon just one of them. This accidental happening throws everyone into disarray, the friends are suddenly divided into those who can and the one who can’t.

The friends realise their daily routine is no longer as enjoyable as it was and together decide they need to redefine the rules of the square world in which they live. By injecting a little fun and chaos they soon discover their lives won’t be square ever again!
This endearing and funny performance looks at the unfairness of being left out in a world designed for everyone else but yourself. From the mind of Daryl Beeton comes A Square World, an honest, touching and bizarrely quirky piece of theatre for young audiences.

This nonverbal story, set to an original commissioned soundtrack uses clean-cut simple design, object manipulation and elements of surprise to create an ever evolving and imaginative world. A place where we discover anything can happen once we think differently and rip up the rule book.

Doors: 2:00pm

On Stage: 2:30pm

Tickets: £7 / £5

Definitely Oasis
Date: 9th March 2019
Details:  Definitely Oasis are regarded by many Oasis fans and promoters alike as the best Oasis tribute band there is.

The band regularly sell out top class venues across the UK and were recently the first ever tribute band to sell out Glasgow’s iconic Garage Venue quite an achievement when you consider only 3 years ago the band played there first gig in Glasgow to less than 50 people to now playing closer to 1000 people shows how good this band is and how far they have come.

Everything the band does is all about what the fans want to see and hear a lot of hard work goes on in the background making sure that the look and sound are bang on so much so that they have been asked to play Glasgow’s iconic Barrowlands venue on November 26th 2016 a venue loved by both Liam & Noel and where Oasis played arguably some of their finest ever shows and another first for an Oasis tribute band proves why they are the best Oasis tribute in the Business.
