    A fabulous tale of how dreams can come true but we need you to hiss and boo;
    For the nastiest and most vile rat and a clap and a cheer for the cleverest cat.
    Fairy Bowbells and her cockney slang with Fitzwarren and his nautical gang.
    Dick Whittington is our hero this time, there’s always one in a pantomime.

    Main Stage Production

    There’s something rotten at the heart of a dark city. A malevolent presence that drains the life from all it touches resides within a crooked counting house. The people fear it, as it wrenches, clutches and claws at their very livelihoods.

    This presence is a man, a man called Scrooge!

    Join Grim North Theatre this festive season and experience their take on the Dickensian classic ‘A Christmas Carol’. Expect sadistic spirits, the worst examples of human nature, and a very merry Christmas.
    Ho, Ho, Ho.

    L.I.F.T. is about ...
    launching our beautiful theatre forwards to face a bigger and brighter future. It’s about giving it a much-needed facelift, whether that’s better access or more desirable décor. But it’s chiefly about bringing people together.
    Just like in the early days of the Halifax Playhouse where members worked together to build, hone and improve this stunning, listed building, safeguarding and preserving it as a prestigious arts venue fit for purpose and the future.

    Together we can make it happen.
