It's a Panto, but not as you know it! 

The Suggestibles

Book now  Reviews  Photos  Access

Newcastle’s legendary improv comedy troupe is back to put the festive fun and loopy laughter into Christmas with their hilarious epic misadventure into the unknown. Your suggestions inspire the whacky twists and turns, cookie characters, and stupidly stupendous songs, for the Suggestibles to spin into a magical musical tale of … well, we can only wonder.

It’s all made-up on-the-spot! You can expect soppy goodies and villainous baddies, to boo, shed a tear, dance and sing-a-long, but be warned: you may fall off your seat in hysterics. So, expect the unexpected, and don’t bring the kids. This show is only for the naughty big variety.

Playing on our fantastical Sorcerer’s Apprentice set for two nights, this is The Suggestibles’ 14th year of Impro Pantsos at Northern Stage. This untraditional panto has become a tradition all of its own.
