Celebrating 50 years of Seaton Delaval Panto!
Seaton Delaval Arts Centre
Friday 2nd to Saturday 10th December 2022
Seaton Delaval Pantomime Society are back this Christmas for another hilarious pantomime for the whole family to enjoy, but this year is extra special as they celebrate their 50th anniversary! The group have produced a show in the village every year since 1973, with hundreds of local performers taking to the stage and thousands enjoying in the audience over the years.
To celebrate they’re going on a genie-us flying carpet adventure in December with Aladdin. An evil magician, has discovered the secret to becoming Master of the Universe. All he needs is an enchanted oil lamp hidden away for many years in a lost cave but only the ‘chosen one’ is allowed to set foot inside. Meanwhile, Aladdin dreams of marrying the beautiful Princess Jasmine but a penniless laundry boy could never hope to have the love of a royal. Could he be the chosen one?
Join Aladdin, Window Twankey, Wishee Washee and the gang for a spectacular show packed full of all of the usual show-stopping songs, dazzling dance routines, magic and hilarious knockabout comedy with bags of audience participation. It’s the perfect way to kick start the festive celebrations. The side-splitting script is written by local writer and performer Tom Whalley and directed by Lorna-Beth Pearson and Stu Bennett.
The group are also inviting all previous members to attend a special Gala Performance on Wednesday 7th December to watch the show and attend a drinks reception to celebrate this milestone. They’d also love to hear from previous members of the group with their panto memories and photographs from the last 50 years which can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The show runs from Friday 2nd to Saturday 10th December 2022 at the Seaton Delaval Arts Centre with evening performances at 7pm and weekend matinees at 1pm. Tickets are £11.00 full price, £10.00 for children and concessions and a family ticket of 4 for £38.00. Tickets are available at seatondelavalartscentre.com or from the Box Office on 0191 237 5460.
