Bridlington Spa has announced that panto will return to the venue for Christmas 2021 with The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan running from Tuesday 14 December 2021 to Monday 3 January 2022.
The theatre will be joining forces once again with award-winning pantomime producers Paul Holman Associates to present this year’s production. Originally planned for last Christmas but postponed due to COVID-19, the production marks the welcome homecoming of the annual Christmas pantomime at Bridlington Spa.
The greatly-anticipated production will star Michael Auger from Britain’s Got Talent winning Musical Theatre Group Collabro in the title role of Peter Pan. After wowing the BGT judges the boys went on to conquer the hearts of the British public winning the Eighth series with one of the highest majorities in the show’s history. Collabro have since gone on to enjoy phenomenal success with five studio albums under their belt and a string of worldwide sell-out tours across the UK, America and Asia.
Peter Pan will also see two of Bridlington panto’s favourite comedy talents take to the stage once more. Joe Standerline who has starred as the flamboyantly funny Dame in numerous Bridlington Spa pantos will be back in sensational style as Dame Nora Bone. He will be joined by Troy Harris whose high energy performance and quick-witted ad libs made him an instant hit with Bridlington audiences when he starred as the hilarious Buttons in Cinderella in 2019.
Pantomime Producer Paul Holman said; “Panto is the perfect tonic for the tough times we’ve all endured recently. We are so happy to be back at Bridlington Spa at the most special time of year and to be bringing some long-awaited and much-needed magic, laughter and the sense of community that we have all been missing so much”.
General Manager of Bridlington Spa, Mark Lonsdale said: “It’s never too early to talk about Christmas and Panto! We’re delighted to see the return of shows after what has been an incredibly difficult 12 months for the theatre and arts industry.
Watching everyone come together this Christmas to enjoy the traditions of pantomime will bring some much needed festive cheer, and for some, it will be their first experience of live theatre.”
This production will follow up-to-date government guidelines and promises to be more spectacular than ever featuring all of the traditional elements of pantomime combined with dazzling scenery and costumes, bucket-loads of fun and awe-inspiring flying guaranteed to entertain all the family.
The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan runs at Bridlington Spa from Tuesday 14th December 2021 to Monday 3rd January 2022. Tickets are on sale now via bridspa.com
