THE first signs of spring are in the air but tickets will soon be on on sale for this year’s Rotherham Civic Theatre pantomime.
The theatre will stage Aladdin this Christmas and is warning that despite there still being eight months until the festive season returns popular show times are likely to sell out fast.
Theatre manager Mark Scott said: ““Rotherham audiences love panto, with many telling us year after year that it wouldn’t be Christmas without our festive fayre, so, we at the theatre like to make sure we deliver the best show possible and try to go one better every year.
“It’s a show that is an undoubted fan favourite and one that lends itself perfectly to the festive season with a mix of magic, wonder, great songs, great comedy, a villain to hiss at, a lovely princess and, of course, a hero to save the day.
“We’re announcing the show now because tickets will be going on sale on April 1, and, no fooling, those key dates that everyone wants, specifically Christmas week and weekends, sell out fast, very fast, so make sure to get your seats is you want that festive treat.”
The cast for the production has yet to be finalised but the theatre has promised to reveal the line up in the “not too distant future”.
Mr Scott added: “I’ve no doubt that this year will be a special one for panto fans in Rotherham and I can’t wait to see sold out show after sold out show.”
