PUSS IN BOOTS – the purrrfect pantomime for all the family

**** Sorry, both matinee performances @ 2:15pm are now full – we still have tickets for all other performances ****

PussonlycompBack for our 56th season of panto, this year we are bringing you hilarity, hijinks and maybe just a little romance with the popular pantomime Puss In Boots, starting on 31st January 2018. Once again we have ten performances including two Saturday matinee performances.

Jack the Miller’s son has just inherited a cat. But this cat is no ordinary feline. And with the help of a charming fairy, Puss in Boots develops the power of speech; soon Puss helps our humble hero, Jack, on his way to fame and fortune. However, between Jack and fortune lies a terrible ogre, a wicked fairy, Jack’s bumbling, not-too-bright, brothers, as well as some rather large rabbits, not to mention a King and Queen in search of a wealthy son-in-law.

This show will be packed with every ingredient for the perfect traditional family pantomime. Expect larger-than-life characters, loads of laughs, a dose of slapstick, modern music, beautiful costumes, stunning dance moves, and of course…… plenty of heroes to cheer and baddies to boo!
