Thursday 25th November 2014 – Sunday 18th January 2015
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Newcastle Theatre Royal’s 2014/15 pantomime, has once again trumped all previous years sales and is set to become the fastest-selling pantomime in the theatre’s 177 year history.
Box Office figures this week showed sales were 12% up from the same time last year suggesting the appetite for Theatre Royal pantomime continues to grow! Last year’s panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, broke all the previous records. Over 92,000 people saw the show starring Clive Webb, Danny Adams and Chris Hayward, not forgetting the 168,000 hospital patients it was broadcast to.
Already, over 77,000 tickets have been sold for this year’s panto which opens on Thursday 25 November 2014, and two additional performances have already been added due to continuous growing demand. The Theatre Royal pantomime starts earlier than any other in the region and has the longest run of any pantomime in the country. The two extra performances have been added on Sunday 18 January at 1pm and 5pm extending the run by an additional day.
Theatre Royal owes its enduring popularity to the massive talent of father and son comedy duo Clive Webb and Danny Adams, opulently dressed dame Chris Hayward, visionary Newcastle-born producer Michael Harrison and amazing special effects from by The Twins FX.
Philip Bernays, Theatre Royal Chief Executive, said: “Our pantomimes are very famous now, and they attract audiences from across the world. Just when we think they can’t get any better – they do! Every year we see Box Office figures rising and it really is testament to a truly wonderful panto team – producer, cast and everyone involved. We are immensely proud and long may it continue!”
Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs sees Clive and Danny celebrating ten years of pantomime magic at the Theatre Royal so the show is sure to be bigger and better than ever before.
The spectacular production promises another bumper season, jam-packed full of fun, adventure and an abundance of comedy, and is sure to be full of gadgets galore. Featuring plenty of glitz and glamour along with sensational musical numbers and breathtaking fairytale sets and costumes, this isn’t just panto – it’s Theatre Royal panto!
