Pantomime Play Time


I don't know what it is about fairytales, but there is something very Christmassy about them. An obvious example would be Hans Christian Anderson's Snow Queen, but there are many others that have no connection with Christmas at all, yet are always shown around the Christmas season in the form of a pantomime.

Pantomimes are another traditional Christmas experience, and putting the two together, fills families with joy and laughter. This Christmas, Nottingham Playhouse are putting on two pantomimes for the family to enjoy.

Jack and the Beanstalk
29th November - 18th January, 20-27.50

After Jack sells his cow for magic beans, he finds himself off on an adventure to the heavens. There are no angels here though. Just a big grumpy giant.

The show will feature eighteen-year panto veteran, Kenneth Alan Taylor as Dame Daisy and Rebecca Little as Jack.

Rapunzel
11th December - 4th January, 7-8

Suitable for children four to eight years old, this retelling of Rapunzel has a bit of a twist. The girl with the long golden locks is kept hidden away in the top of a tower by her worried Nan, but somehow she makes a secret friend, who helps her escape.

Also on the 11th December is a show celebrating Nottingham Playhouse's 50th anniversary. A special Pantomime Gala with another performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. It will also celebrate Kenneth Alan Taylor's 30th pantomime as a writer and director. Tickets are 50, and includes champagne and canapes.
