Details

The great thing about panto is that it includes songs that go back years. Music stays in the memory. People can join in, sing along and reminisce. This performance is carefully tailored for people with dementia and their families or carers so that everyone can enjoy the wonder of theatre at Nottingham Playhouse in an environment that is comfortable and supportive.

A DREAM OF A FAMILY FESTIVE TREAT

Experience the magic of this year’s pantomime, Beauty and the Beast.

Filled with magic and monstrous fun, this tale as old as time is the perfect festive treat.

Join us to laugh and cheer, ‘boo’ the baddies and singalong to magnificent musical numbers – it’s a guaranteed great night out for all the family.

When the beautiful Belle is trapped in an enchanted castle by a mysterious beast, the stage is set for a spellbinding adventure. Can she escape with the help of her friends? Will Belle melt the beast’s frosty heart and lift his curse before it’s too late?

Packed with hilarious characters, stunning sets, glittering costumes and plenty of panto humour, you won’t want to miss our legendary pantomime.

Book early to guarantee the best seats!

Here are some of the ways this performance is Dementia Friendly:

• The volume of music will be reduced when dialogue is taking place.
• Changing seats during the performance is fine and so is leaving the performance and re-entering.
• This is not a schools performance, so the audience will be quieter.
• There will be additional signage with pictures in the foyers.
• There will be a quiet room, before after and during the show.
• There will be more staff on hand to support.
• A very relaxed attitude to moving around the theatre and making noise.
