Casting news -
We're delighted to announce the return of Dame Adam Stafford to the Victoria Theatre pantomime this Christmas! 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Prices vary by date or seating position but Adult and Child tickets are the same price
Pre-order your pantomime merchandise!
This year we are trying something new and invite you to join in with the story. Instead of the usual plastic flashing toys that can be disruptive and distracting, spoil the blackout scenes, and often stop working when you get home we are selling higher quality toys that help you and your children to continue the story telling theme of pantomime for years to come.
Visit our online shop to see a small selection of the merchandise we have available to pre-order including hand puppets, finger puppets and pencils with playful toppers, along with pantomime programmes. There will be a further selection of toys available to purchase during the pantomime.
Please also be aware that we will no longer allow any flashing plastic toys into the theatre during our pantomime and urge visitors not to purchase plastic toys from anywhere before the show, as they will not be permitted into the building.
