After months of hard work, scriptwriting, rehearsing and planning, the young people from John Spence School performed Georgian Cluedo to three sell out crowds on Sunday 11th December 2022 at The Exchange Theatre, North Shields.

Transporting families and local community members into Northumberland Square on Christmas Eve, the question on everyone’s lips was ‘Who did it?’ Working together, our audience and cast members went on a journey led by Dolly played by Jackie Phillips to discover who stole the present and the coveted treasure map.

Performing three separate shows in succession, the young people transformed into characters that demonstrated their acting abilities and imagination.

The production was part of our Heritage Action Zone programme in North Shields.
