Pantomime Archive

Show titles, leaflets and cast members of every Princes Hall pantomime since our first in 1972.

In 1972 Tommy Trinder; a stage, screen and radio comedian of the pre and post war years whose catchphrase was 'You lucky people' stepped onto the stage at the Princes Hall in our first ever panto Puss in Boots.

Since then we have produced a pantomime every year ranging from the traditional panto titles of Aladdin, Jack and the Beanstalk, Dick Whittington and Cinderella, to the more contemporary, Wizard of Oz, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty & The Beast and Snow White, as well as the more unusual Robinson Crusoe, Red Riding Hood and the Pied Piper.

Many well known faces from stage and screen have also taken part in our panto's over the years; Harry H. Corbett, Melvin Hayes, Clifford Henry, Anna Karen, Bobby Brag, Clive Dunn, Arthur English, Johnny Ball, Keith Chegwin, Danny John Jules, Michael Fenton Stevens and Dominic Wood.
