Christmas Pantomimes and Performances

Christmas Pantomimes and Performances

The Pantomime is a wonderful British institution! Taking place around the Christmas period, they are almost always based on well-known children’s stories such as Cinderella, Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty. Audience participation is very important! If you’re going to the Panto be ready to boo the villains, shout out ‘he’s behind you’ and generally get involved in the fun!

Have an amazing, fun time at the following Pantomimes taking place in North East Lincolnshire this Christmas. Scroll down further for more performances on during the festive period.

In this much-loved children’s classic the comfortable lives of three well mannered siblings are greatly altered when, one evening, two men arrive at the house and take their father away. With the family’s fortunes considerably reduced in his absence, the children and their mother are forced to live in a simple country cottage near a railway station. There the young trio — Roberta, Peter, and young Phyllis — befriend the porter and station master. The youngsters’ days are filled with adventure and excitement, including their successful attempt to avert a horrible train disaster; but the mysterious disappearance of their father continues to haunt them.
