Audience Comment

This year’s panto is a very special one as we celebrate Kenneth Alan Taylor’s 30th year as writer and director and his final performance as Dame. Don’t miss your chance to wave him goodbye before this giant of a magical adventure finishes on Saturday 18 January.

BBC Radio 4 has been following the progress of Jack and the Beanstalk since September to find out more about what goes in to producing our annual pantomime and also to explore why pantos are financially important to regional theatre. You can listen again here. Kenneth Alan Taylor also took time out to talk to BBC Radio Nottingham’s Mark Dennison about life in panto. You can listen again here until Friday 27 December.

One of the best dames in the country

Hilariously funny

This year we are also offering a relaxed performance of pantomime on Tuesday 14 January at 1.30pm. A relaxed performance is suitable for anyone who would benefit from a more easy-going environment, including children and adults with Autism Spectrum Conditions or learning disabilities.

FREE bus travel to see panto

Nottingham City Transport have generously offered free bus tickets for Playhouse customers, from now until the end of February.

The offer is available over the phone or in person at the Box Office – not online. They are free return tickets for use on Nottingham City Transport buses only.

Nottingham City Transport have made this offer available to our customers in response to our potential loss of funding from Nottinghamshire County Council.
