The magic of panto is back at the New Theatre Royal!

We’ve all missed that panto feeling, haven’t we? Well, there’s some good news… the wait is almost over!

Lincoln’s longest running traditional Christmas pantomime is back at the New Theatre Royal Lincoln (NTR) with Beauty & the Beast (Tue 7th Dec 2021 – Sun 9th Jan 2022). And this year’s panto, with it’s star-studded cast, is set to be bigger and better than ever (Oh, yes it is)!

The incredibly popular Jake Quickenden (X Factor, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, winner of Dancing On Ice) will star as baddie Flash Hugo, an arrogant, self-loving, egotistical, ladies’ man who will stop at nothing to win the hand of Belle.

He will be joined by CBBC’s “Yonko”, Chris Johnson, as Belle’s father – Professor Ivar Brainstorm. Chris has become a true Lincoln audience favourite after appearing in every NTR Christmas and Easter pantomime since Cinderella in 2016.

 Also back by popular demand is Zoe Hanna May, as Belle. Zoe appeared on ITV’s The Voice (2017), securing a place on Tom Jones’ team, and wowed audiences as Maid Marian in the NTR’s 2019 Christmas pantomime Robin Hood.

Another familiar face taking to the stage is award-wining comedian, actor, and magician Christian Lee (Britain’s Got Talent finalist, BBC’s The Slammer), as Marcel Allumette – the quirky candelabra.

Beauty & the Beast, the most endearing love story ever told, follows NTR’s hugely successful 2019 Christmas pantomime Robin Hood, which was one of only five productions nominated for ‘Best Show’ (under 750 seats) at The Great British Pantomime Awards 2020. Just like Robin Hood, this year’s pantomime will be packed full of laughs, boos, and audience participation, making it perfect fun for all the family.

The theatre is proud to produce a relaxed performance on Friday 17th December (2pm), perfect babies, pre-school children and anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment – including anyone with an autism spectrum condition or learning disability. During this performance the overall sound is reduced by 25%, auditorium lights and increased by 25%, and there will be no use of loud bangs, pyrotechnics, or strobe lighting.

There will also be a signed performance on Friday 17th December (7pm) where a trained British Signed Language Interpreter will stand in a visible position on the side of the stage, interpreting the spoken and heard elements of the show.

Under 2s can go free, when sitting on a parent or guardian’s lap.

Tickets are available from www.ntrlincoln.co.uk, the Box Office, or on 01522 519999.

Family, group and school rates are also available.
