Friargate Theatre York  has announced their Autumn Season. There will be shows to excite all the family, with craft activities in the café with the children’s shows, such as, Welcome to the World, an interactive show for 0-5 year olds that is filled to the brim with original songs and puppets made entirely from natural and found objects. Finding Chester follows the story of a missing cat when a rollercoaster journey ensues on a search to find him. For older children there’s The Chronicles of Atom and Luna, an epic fairytale for those 6 years and over.

Right Here Right Now brings us York’s own comedy improv night with its own brand of sensational silliness based on audience suggestions. There’s a night of hilarious comedy with the biggest and best performers across the circuit, that’s Get Up Stand Up, a monthly comedy night starting this September.

In addition to these captivating children’s shows and comedic delights, Friargate Theatre York is also proud to present a range of thought-provoking and dynamic plays. Dive into the world of Shakespeare with a fresh take on his timeless classics or explore contemporary issues with powerful performances centred around climate change. The theatre’s storytelling sessions promise to enchant audiences with tales spanning from mischievous gremlins to eerie ghosts, ensuring there’s something to spark the imagination of every attendee.

Live music includes an homage to Frank Sinatra, with Joseph O’Brien, fresh from a tour of The Rat Pack – Live in Concert, here with all the Sinatra classic hits. Plus, Liverpool’s premiere beat merchants The Shakers playing the hits and the lost classics from the golden age of Merseybeat.

As the festive season approaches, don’t miss out on A Christmas Cracker, a heartwarming show designed to bring joy to the entire family. This seasonal favourite is packed with holiday cheer, laughter, and a sprinkle of magic, making it the perfect outing to create cherished memories.
