It may be over a hundred days away, but in Portsmouth they're counting down the days until Christmas and the start of the panto season. Oh, yes they are!
Many shows had to be cancelled last year due to Covid-19 restrictions - the Kings Theatre in Portsmouth being one of those forced to cancel. The season had started, but then the city was put into Tier 3, meaning no shows could go ahead. This year though there's no stopping them, with a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk firmly on the cards.
Fee Fi Fo Fum… Come to the Kings and join in the fun!
Get ready for the GIGANTIC panto that’s going to rocket you up into the clouds as Dame Trott and her son Jack do battle with the giant!
Your Pompey panto favourites are back together, with our very own Dame, Jack Edwards and Sean Smith (X Factor finalists Same Difference) welcoming special Love Island guest star Amy Hart to join the gang this Christmas. James Percy will once again be bringing the silly, and Julia Worsley (boo!) is battling it out with Marlene Little Hill (hurrah!) under the ever-watchful eye of Peter McCrohon.
Can Jack get back the family cow he swapped for magic beans? Can Dame Trott keep a roof over her head and save the family farm? Find out as the Kings throws a huge sprinkling of fairy dust over an amazing production with lavish sets, costumes and huge production values that you won’t want to miss – and of course the all important 12 Days of Christmas – don’t forget your toilet rolls!
