THE Esk Valley Theatre is staging two productions over the coming month aimed at very different audiences.

Dangerous Obsessions is a gripping psychological thriller questioning the state of modern marriage, while the Pocket Panto Company is staging a mid-summer production of Aladdin.

Productions take place at the Glaisdale Institute, which recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, and each year the building is transformed into a theatre by installing seating, extending the stage and building a lighting rig.

The theatre presents performances in an unusual setting amid the scenery of the North York Moors.

Choreographer Sheila Carter said: “Dangerous Obsessions takes the audience on a journey into three minds, opening them up and laying bare their innermost thoughts.

“When caught in an emotional storm, which human being can say they remain completely in control of their actions?”

The Pocket Panto company are three professional actors who appear in pantomimes each Christmas at theatres around the UK.

Rebecca Little, Darren Johnson and Jeremy Stroughair tour the country and guarantee a fun-filled show.

The Esk Valley Theatre is presenting Dangerous Obsessions from 5 to 27 August at the Robinson Institute.

Tickets cost £11 (£10 for concessions).

Pocket Panto present Aladdin on Tuesday 9 and Friday 26 August.

It is suitable for all the family and tickets cost £5.50 (£4.50 for concessions).
