2nd Brand New Rock’n’roll Panto Announced at the New Wolsey Theatre

The New Wolsey Theatre are delighted to announce ANOTHER brand new rock’n’roll pantomime for 2016-2017…


Thursday 24 November 2016 to Saturday 28 January 2017


Written by Peter Rowe, and performed in the New Wolsey Theatre’s ever-popular actor-musician style, this brand new adaptation of the amazing adventures of Sinbad is bursting with music, mayhem and magic.

Sinbad, determined to win the hand of the beautiful Princess Pearl, sets sail aboard the Saucy Sausage on his most dangerous voyage yet –past the Island of the Sirens, and the Plughole of Poseidon to the paradise of Nirvana itself! But can he save the Princess from the clutches of the evil sorcerer, Sinistro? Will his mother, Dame Doner Souvlakia, find true love in this tropical Paradise? Can fair winds blow Sinbad to fame and fortune, or will the perfect storm shipwreck all his dreams?

Packed with classic tunes including THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN, THE POWER OF LOVE, I WANT TO BREAK FREE, LIVING ON A PRAYER and SMOKE ON THE WATER, Sinbad is a feast of treats for all the family.

Alongside this news, the team is also excited to announce the second year of sponsorship with Ipswich Building Society. The company kindly agreed to sponsor the New Wolsey Theatre’s sell-out panto for the next three years, with 2016 marking the second year.

Paul Winter, Chief Executive at Ipswich Building Society says: “The New Wolsey Theatre’s much loved pantomimes have become one of the main highlights of the festive season locally and we’re already looking forward to embarking on the second year of our partnership.  Through our collaboration with the New Wolsey some of our members have had the chance to not only attend rehearsals for a sneak peek of the show, but have also been lucky enough to meet the actors and witness how the magic is created behind the scenes.  Coupled with the panto themed fun and children’s competitions we’ve had in branches, this has also helped the theatre to attract new audience members – who we’ll hopefully see again at this year’s exciting new production.”
