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, Sleeping Beauty.
With spectacular costumes, stunning sets, plenty of belly-laughs and magical musical numbers, our legendary panto is perfect for a festive treat.
Discover the magical kingdom of Princess Rosalind a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty brought to life on Nottingham Playhouse’s stage. When Sleeping Beauty pricks her finger on evil fairy Maleficent’s spinning wheel the entire kingdom is sent to sleep.
Join us to find out if brave Prince Alexander, Jerry the Jester and Fairy Wisheart can foil the evil fairy’s plans and save Sleeping Beauty. Will they live happily ever after?
Featuring all your festive favourites – slapstick comedy from your pantomime dame, “It’s behind you!” banter, and a colourful pantomime villain in the shape of evil fairy Maleficent.
Guaranteed great fun for all the family, there’s surprises in store for you at every performance.
Book early to bag the best seats in the house!
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.
