There were no reports of injuries.

The trouble began shortly after 9pm on the opening night of Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games, directed and choreographed by Irish dance superstar Flatley.

The show is described as a high-energy, two-hour fusion of dance styles, from traditional Irish dance to tap, modern and Broadway involving a story of good versus evil, with a Hunger Games flavour.

No-one from the theatre was available for comment.
