The image shows the artwork for 'The Snow Queen,' but this time with a more spring and summery theme - the background, while still under faint snow and shattering shards of ice, is a lush green with flowers and a light blue sky and large yellow sun. The mirror now reads the dates '27th May to 13th June 2021' and shows a photograph of Dame Sigrid Smorgasbord with her arms outstretched towards the audience at the bottom. Four boxes on the left show the show has audio description, captioning, British Sign Language and relaxed versions available. A large pink banner fills the bottom of the image, reading ‘Live…’ with the words ‘in the auditorium’ underneath.

All that social distancing and lockdown’s been a bummer.
But here’s the silver lining folks - it’s panto in the summer!

The 5* smash hit show of 2020 The Snow Queen is back by popular demand!

Peter Rowe’s Rock ‘n’ Roll panto features all your favourite actor-musicians and iconic songs like Let’s Get Loud, If I Had a Hammer, I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), I Can See Clearly Now and Runaway Baby. See the show in our auditorium (or livestreamed) from Thursday 27 May until Sunday 13 June

All’s well in the peaceful little town of Ballbroken; Gerda is about to be crowned the Queen of May, the blacksmith’s apprentice Simon Clinkerbin hopes to graduate and get his very own hammer, and Dame Sigrid Smorgasbord has prepared a magnificent May Day feast. What’s more, it looks like something’s blossoming between Sigrid’s young son Kay, and Gerda, the blacksmith’s daughter. But when Primrose, Spirit of the Spring, smashes the Snow Queen’s cursed mirror, little does she know this will only make matters worse…

Captioning, audio description and British Sign Language available, as well as a relaxed, recorded version on demand.

***** A ‘riotous jukebox jamboree… a total triumph’ (The Stage)

‘A blended panto has been embraced by the venue with characteristic and inventive gusto. And it works!’ (East Anglian Daily Times)
