Adam was last at the venue two years ago for the smash hit production of Aladdin and is delighted to be returning for the show he made his Victoria Theatre debut in back in 2012. Adam will be joined by the hilarious Josh Benson as his new son.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR VISIT TO THE PANTOMIME
We will not be selling plastic flashing toys at this year's pantomime. We are consciously trying to reduce the theatre’s use of single use plastics and are therefore selling higher quality toys that help you and your children to continue the story telling theme of pantomime for years to come.
We will not be permitting any flashing toys into the theatre for any pantomime shows and urge visitors not to purchase plastic toys from anywhere before the show, as they will not be permitted into the building. Customer feedback has informed us that plastic flashing toys can be disruptive, distracting and spoil the blackout scenes and we hope this change will improve your pantomime experience.
Our new range of hand puppets, finger puppets and pencils with playful toppers, along with pantomime programmes can be purchased in the theatre foyer and make excellent Christmas gifts!
