Northern Stage is the largest producing theatre in the North East. As a registered charity with industry-leading facilities and know-how, we support creative people of all backgrounds and abilities to bring the most entertaining, suprising, and imaginative stories to life. A place to laugh, discover, challenge and learn - place to think and re-think. At Northern Stage ideas meet, futures changes, and we reach beyond the ordinary every time. 

The support we receive from Trusts and Foundations is vital and helps ensure we continue to deliver projects in community venues, at the theatre and the region's schools. 

Projects are based on the belief that every individual has enormous creative potential and that creativity can be used as a vehicle for social change. We provide opportunities for people of all ages and from all walks of life to explore, develop and realise that potential. 

Funding from Trusts and Foundations helps us to plan for the future and esnure we continue to deliver the very best theatre and community projects for people from all walks of life. 

A huge thank you to all our current supporters
