Pantomime season still in force across the region

With Christmas celebrations winding down, and well-fed residents returning to work, the new year sees the last element of the festive season still standing; the Christmas Pantomime.

These traditional, sometimes bawdy, performances are perfect for families with the often double-layered subtle humour and innuendo that should keep the adults as amused as the slapstick and silly voices will for the children.

Adam Woodyatt, of Eastenders, fame is just coming to the end of his run as ‘Captain Hook’ in Crewe, but there are others to choose from. Most notable in the area is ‘Beauty and the Beast’ in Runcorn, which is running until January 12. This stars Andy Moss of Hollyoaks, and is running in parallel with another ‘Beauty and the Beast’ performance in nearby Flintshire, which is on stage until January 25 and boasts an all-singing, all-dancing cast of local talent.

Also running till January 12 is the family friendly ‘Cinderella’, playing in Warrington’s Pyramid and Parr Hall. Whilst residents and tourists alike have been flocking to these areas for Christmas shopping over the last few weeks, local theatres are trying to maintain the momentum for slightly longer, by attracting well-known celebrities to take part in their shows. The range of shows across the region means that theatre fans, whether local to the area or simply staying in accommodation near Warrington or the surrounding area, are sure to have something to catch their attention and have them chuckling their way through January.
