Beauty and the Beast Set to Smash Box Office Records!
This year's pantomime has been a storming success and has exceeded attendances for last year. It is on track to beat all box office records since Theatre Royal Wakefield began producing their own shows in 2003!

Theatre Royal Wakefield’s Executive Director Murray Edwards said;
“It is amazing how many people have come to see our fantastic show this year. It is a testament to our fantastic creative team that they have produced something of such quality that people are literally clamouring to buy seats.
If you haven't see it yet then don't miss your chance to find out what everyone's been raving about. Beauty and the Beast runs until Sunday 4 January.

WACCL Raises £23,5000 for Wakefield District Children
Last week, local businesses gathered together in support of the second Wakefield Annual Charity Christmas Lunch, raising funds for Theatre Royal Wakefield's Performance Academy and The Community Foundation for Wakefield district. In 2013 WACCL raised £13,500 for Theatre Royal Wakefield’s programme of work with young people, this year they raised a staggering £23,500!

Here’s hoping that WACCL goes from strength to strength for next year and beyond!


The Wakefield Mysteries Needs You!
The Wakefield Mysteries are a cycle of medieval mystery dramas, comprising 32 religious pageants in English verse and dramatising key Biblical stories from The Creation, to The Last Judgement.
We are looking for sixty 13 - 30 year olds to take part in drama/movement workshops which will explore a brand new piece of work that that brings the medieval plays bang up to date. Working closely with the writer and director, participants will take part in fun physical sessions involving voice and character work as well as music and movement elements. Sessions take place in January and February 2015. Read more...


Theatre Royal Wakefield Gift Appeal
Theatre Royal Wakefield needs your help. Every year the Pantomime cast go to the childrens burns unit at Pinderfields Hospital to cheer the children up with presents. We rely soley on donations and this year Sainsbury's at Trinity Walk have kindly put a trolley out for us. Once again we are overwhelmed with the generous gifts people have donated but we still need a few more to make sure we have enough to offer all the children we visit.

Ages range from toddler to 15 years old so toys, books, DVDs and games make great presents (no food please). If you would like to donate a gift you can do so at Sainsbury's Trinity Walk or bring your gift to our Box Office. Let's put some smiles on children's faces this Christmas!
