Royston Panto Returns

Rehearsals are now well underway for the next Royston Town Pantomime, presented by local drama group CADS, and tickets are already selling well.

The show for 2023 is Sleeping Beauty, directed by David Atkins with musical direction by Louise Atkins, and it’s a new look at the old tale, but with all the ingredients of a traditional pantomime – good fairies, bad fairies, good jokes, bad jokes and, of course, plenty of songs, dance and audience participation.

The pantomime will be performed as usual at King James Academy Royston (Senior Site) during the last two weekends in January 2023, and this year, in response to popular demand, the group is putting on an additional matinee performance so that more children (and grown-ups, too, of course!) can enjoy the show.

Performance dates are Saturday 21st January (2pm and 7.30pm), Sunday 22nd January (11.30am), Friday 27th January (7.30pm) and Saturday 28th January (2pm and 7.30pm). Tickets went on sale at the KJAR Christmas Market in November and, in recognition of the difficulties families are currently facing, prices have been kept at £12 for adults and £8 for concessions (children, students and OAPs).
