Tumble down the rabbit hole at The New Theatre Royal

The New Theatre Royal’s pantomime, Alice in Wonderland wowed 4,000 theatre goers over the Easter break with wholesome family entertainment.

The team from the New Theatre Royal are delighted to add another in-house production to their growing list of successes.

This adaptation of Alice’s journey down the rabbit hole with magical music, vibrant costumes and a small, but perfectly formed cast of five fantastic actors proved a winning formula.

Children and their families loved the audience participation, light-hearted jokes and energetic dance numbers confirming the Easter Pantomime is here to stay at the NTR.

Natalie Hayes Cowley, in house Producer and Artistic Director, said: “Producing an Easter Pantomime is a bygone tradition that last ran in the Theatre over a decade ago.

“We were unsure whether the demand was there, but we have been overwhelmed with the public’s support, seeing three full houses and every show exceeding 75% capacity.

“We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one who has supported us by seeing this production. As we don’t receive public funding, so these in-house productions are paramount to the keep the theatre open for years to come.

“We are delighted to announce that next year we will certainly be producing another, but first we have 60 shows throughout our Summer and Autumn Season, including our very own Comedy Night at the Royal in April, July and October and our annual Christmas pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs which opens in December.”

The entertainment over the Easter holidays isn’t over yet as the theatre transforms into a cinema for screenings of the newly released Coco and Wonder with tickets at £2 for children and £5 for adults.
