Sheffield Theatres are curing January Blues and you can book your tickets on Saturday!

We’re in the throws of a drastic drop in temps, dry Jan, and post-Christmas cheer… things can seem pretty dreary. But fear not, what’s that gleaming beacon of spectacle in our midst?? Ah, yes! A cheeky Sheffield Theatres’ onsale!

We have the biggest theatre complex outside the capital in our city centre, and their announcement is here to perk up any mid-Jan downers. Aren’t we lucky, hey? Book yourself in for some laughs, sauciness, joy, children’s favourites and dramaturgical poignancy this Spring. There’s something for everyone, so why not give yourself something great to look forward to?!


An exciting mix of high-demand new touring productions will be welcomed to Sheffield’s three stages in May 2024. They’re on sale this Saturday, so be sure to get stuck in!

Frankie Boyle is one of the UK’s premier comedians and writers, and the iconic comic is coming to Sheffield. He’s known for his shows New World Order (BBC2), Tramadol Nights (Channel 4) and his best-selling DVDs and Netflix Special. His new tour Lap of Shame comes to the Lyceum on Friday 10 May and is not one to be missed. He’s a legend of the comedy game, and Sheffield is going to find out why – first hand!

Fifth Word, Nottingham Playhouse, and Brixton House present Liberation Squares in the Tanya Moiseiwitsch Playhouse from Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 May. Three teenage girls forge an unlikely friendship when they meet at a creative writing workshop, but when they discover the workshop is connected to the state surveillance ‘Prevent’ programme, they have to fight back. The only question is how? A punchy and poetic story of sisterhood, freedom of speech and creative expression. Why does being an outspoken Muslim girl have to be so damn hard? The established theatre companies break down societal barriers and pick apart questions of marginalised girlhood.

After a complete sell-out first run in 2023, crowned comedienne Ruby Wax's rawest, darkest, funniest and most compelling stage show comes to the Crucible on Thursday 30 May! Based on the extreme journeys she wanted to take in order to find an antidote to living a frazzled life (who can’t relate), I’m Not As Well As I Thought I Was is Ruby’s first tour show in four years following her critically acclaimed, sell-out tour, How To Be Human.


Pack your bags and jump aboard the Milkshake! train and go on an all singing, all dancing holiday together with Milkshake! Live On Holiday. A family show not to be missed, join with favourite Milkshake! friends including Dora, Pip and Posey, Blue from Blues Clues, Milo, Milkshake! Monkey plus two Milkshake! presenters for an all-new adventure at the Lyceum on Friday 31 May. A perfect show for little ones, and ideal for a first time theatre trip!


Tickets for new shows will be available to book by Centre Stage Members from 10am Saturday 13 January, with general booking opening on Saturday 20 January. Tickets can be booked through the Box Office in person, over the phone on 0114 249 6000, or at
