Wed 1 to Saturday 11 May, 2024

Following our smash-hit production of Footloose we are straight into rehearsals for our Spring 2024 production – the fabulous KINKY BOOTS.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous drag entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they realized… and discover that when you change your mind, you can change your whole world.



Following our smash-hit production of KINKY BOOTS we will be straight into rehearsals for our Autumn 2024 production – MADE IN DAGENHAM.

The show will run from Wednesday 23 October to Saturday 2 November, 2024 at Darlington Hippodrome. Tickets are ON SALE SOON


The DarlingtonOS wardrobe department has created sets of costumes for shows including THE SOUND OF MUSIC, SISTER ACT, GREASE, HAIRSPRAY, LEGALLY BLONDE, SPAMALOT, WEST SIDE STORY and TOP HAT.

Our History

DarlingtonOS has a long and colourful history dating back over 100 years. The company as we know it today has been producing two full-scale musicals at Darlington Hippodrome since 1945 and has a national reputation for creating large scale, lavish productions.

An integral piece of the history of Darlington Hippodrome, DarlingtonOS was instrumental in keeping the theatre alive in the late 1950s – ensuring the building was not demolished, later selling the building to the local Council who, to this day, run the theatre.

A jewel in the crown of Edwardian theatre, Darlington Hippodrome is a receiving house for large scale professional touring shows with a seating capacity of over 1000. Following a major £13million restoration back in 2017 the venue is fit for purpose for years to come.
