The family panto full of Oo-La-La-ughs!

A baddie wanting boos, goodies with some gags, a heroine in hot water... but what has happened to the handsome Prince? Join us for a spectacular adventure as Dame Derriere and son, Potty Pierre, cause chaos at the chateau.

From our fantastic panto partner, Jordan Productions, who brought you 2019’s Cinderella, once again we promise you everything you have come to expect from The Central Theatre panto including live music, glittering sets and rip-roaring adventure in a panto full of Oo La La-ughs that will be ‘simply the beast’!

Leading the cast in true Captain Captain style is CBeebies star Jennie Dale from the hugely popular Swashbuckle. Jennie will be playing the role of Fairy Formidable, guiding audiences with her special magic through the panto story – let’s hope she does a better job of that than captaining the Scarlet Squid!

Joining Jennie will be EastEnders legend Todd Carty as Beauty’s father along with Matt Lapinskas (Dancing in Ice, EastEnders) as the Prince/Beast and the hilarious Michael Neilson returns to The Central Theatre pantomime as Dame Dotty.

Also joining the cast will be West End star Hannah Boyce as Beauty.

A signed performance will take place on 2.00pm on Sunday 12 December.
