Theatre Hullabaloo is a pioneering organisation that makes, tours,  promotes and champions theatre for young audiences, aged 0 – 16 years old, because we believe that they are the most important audience of all.

Theatre Hullabaloo believes that creativity should be part of everyone’s childhood and that art for children should reflect and challenge their world. We work with specialist creative teams of artists and children as co-creators, embedding their contributions at every stage of the artistic process to make our work relevant and meaningful.

We create pioneering work which puts the young person at the heart of the creative process. Our work is driven by the belief that young audiences have an entitlement to world-class theatre and art of the highest quality which inspires the imagination and challenges the mind.

In December 2017, we realised our dream and opened The Hullabaloo in Darlington, a dedicated venue for children and families offering world-class theatre specifically made for children and young people, free creative play installations, storytelling sessions, workshops,  themed takeover days and more. The Hullabaloo was designed and built with children at the heart of the project and includes a 100 seat studio theatre, creative play spaces, family friendly café, child friendly toilets, a buggy park, story corner and It is the only venue of its kind north of London. The Hullabaloo is a national centre of excellence in theatre for young audiences  an inspiring place to play and learn in and since opening has won several awards for its family appeal.
