AN UPDATE ABOUT PANTO

Published : 07/Sep/2021


Hello Shrewwwwwsbury!


We are excited to announce the title of this year’s pantomime will be the spectacular, swashbuckling Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan!


Following the postponement of last year’s pantomime Beauty and the Beast, and further discussions with our producers Evolution, a change of title has been agreed which will see pantomime return to Shrewsbury this year, bigger and better than ever before. Once again, the show will star Shropshire’s legendary pantomime dame, Brad Fitt as Mrs Smee, and will be written by regular pantomime producer Paul Hendy.  

We can’t wait to share a magical panto season with everyone again. We’ve been so grateful for the understanding and support we have received from our audiences following last year’s postponement. Peter Pan will feature everything you’ve come to know and love about Theatre Severn pantomimes, and more!

All existing tickets remain valid and will be transferred to the equivalent performance date and time this year, to ensure that ticketholders retain their preferred times and favourite seats. If you have tickets and wish to check or discuss your booking, please contact our Box Office team on 01743 281281 or via email.


Writer and Producer, Paul Hendy said ‘It’s been such a difficult year for everyone that, by Christmas, I’m sure everybody will be ready to have a really good time and I promise exactly that, with the most spectacular pantomime of them all, Peter Pan!’


Despite last year’s postponement, more than 25,000 tickets for this year’s pantomime have now been carried over or snapped up by audiences already. Peter Pan opens on Wednesday 1 December 2021 and runs until Monday 3 January 2022. Hook your tickets today!

An update about auditions

Regrettably, we have decided that we won’t be able to accommodate juvenile performers in the Theatre Severn pantomime this year due to the continuing circulation of Covid infection. While rates and risks are much improved this year, the safety of our cast, company and crew is paramount to us, so we need to reduce their exposure to the virus as much as we possibly can to enable a full and complete pantomime run.  Also, we understand the need for children to return to as much normality and classroom time as possible.  We will really miss our young performers and we can’t wait to bring them back next year.
