ONCE Upon A Time in Pantoland Wellington Pantomime Group is proud to announce they will be performing a brand new pantomime, titled Once Upon a Time in Pantoland in January 2023.

This bright and funny new production comes hot on the heels of their last success, Treasure Island, and the creative Team behind this one - director Steph Colman, choreographer Holly Knowles, vocal coach Kiera Chard, musical director Joe Beckhelling, and production co-ordinator Pete Watts are all raring to go for this roller-coaster of a pantomime.

The story so far – Pantoland, where all your favourite pantomime characters live in peace – Peter Pan, Snow White, Jack (and his beanstalk) Hansel and Gretel, King Charming to name a few, watched over by the Spirit of Pantomime all live happily together.

But wait, the Wicked Witch Mouldywart, aided by her cat Snitch has plans to kidnap the Spirit of Pantomime and make the whole land unhappy.

Can Tallulah Tickle with son Tommy and daughter Tilly, thwart the evil plans of Mouldywart and save the day along with PC Peter Potter and his trusty dog Baxter, and with the help of Charming Prince Willy (who loves Tilly and will do anything to save her).

Featuring all your pantomime favourites – Dame, link person, evil witch, good fairy and fairy godmother, Prince charming, a King, bumbling police officers, a cat, a dog, and panto cow, plus Postman ‘Pat’, villagers/ensemble, students of the Fairy Academy, ghosts, ghouls and henchmen plus more.
