A musical fantasy about the fantastical human story of Elton John's breakthrough years.
Based on a true fantasy, Rocketman showcases the formative years of Sir Elton John’s musical career, featuring all the excess and glamour the star is known and loved for. Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Taron Egerton, and Richard Madden, enjoy every minute as you jump into the glitzy tale of the rise of one of Britain’s most iconic music-men.
Emerging onto the musical scene as a promising talent at the Royal Academy of Music, Elton John (Taron Egerton) is keen to make his mark.
When he’s spotted by music manager John Reid (Richard Madden), he feels ready to hit the dizzy heights of stardom. His whole life has been working towards this: the stage, the glamour, the music. However, Elton doesn’t quite realise just how different things will be now – and it’s too late to ever go back.
As his status begins to rise, Elton parties hard, abuses alcohol, and begins to question his own sexuality, all amid a straining relationship with his mother (Bryce Dallas Howard).
There are moments in a rock star’s life that define who he is – and with his formative years sculpting his future, Elton John needs to decide who he wants to be.Read More
Daneside Theatre is an independent theatre with a charitable status that aims to provide a venue for the community that all ages can benefit from.
The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre just off the Mountnatten Way, the dual carriageway that runs through the town. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows and business events. The original theatre built in the 1980s was extended in 2000 to add rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.
These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows, pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have something to suit all tastes during our season.
For further details of our shows this current season see the What’s On section.
Over the next two years we will be embarking on an exciting project to improve the foyer area of the theatre, and small improvements to the auditorium and back stage areas.
