Theatre Hullabaloo is a pioneering organisation that makes, tours & promotes theatre for young audiences, aged 0 – 16 years old, because we believe that they are the most important audience of all.
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 theatre of the highest quality which inspires the imagination and challenges the mind.
The Hullabaloo is situated on Borough Road in Darlington, on a site adjacent to Darlington Hippodrome. It is easily reached by foot from Darlington Town Centre, public transport or car. We are only a 5-minute walk from Darlington’s train station.
Our fabulous new venue is specifically created for children and families and is an inspiring place to play and learn. The venue is fully accessible, has great facilities for you and your family to access: child friendly toilets, buggy parking, separate baby change, creative play spaces and a great family friendly café.

Our family-friendly offer
Come and join in on the fun…
Theatre Hullabaloo believes that going to the theatre should be an important part of everybody’s childhood and attending one of our shows is a great family activity that will create fantastic memories for young and old.
We are the North East’s specialist producer of theatre for children and young people and we are proud to make shows which are specifically developed to ensure that they are appropriate for the developmental stage of the target audience. We are funded to create work of the highest quality that families can enjoy together and which will support children in their social and emotional development.
The theatre space is for you…
In all performances for younger children, we provide a quiet space to exit the performance if it all becomes a bit much and welcome children back into the space when they are ready. All our performers are experienced and sensitive to audiences of younger children whose responses will be appropriately supported as part of the show.
Theatre Hullabaloo always offer a number of ‘Relaxed Performances’ as part of each tour where we maintain some light in the theatre and ensure the performance is gentler, so that children with specific needs such as autism can feel more comfortable.
