It may only be August however panto bosses at Exmouth Pavilion are already working hard towards their biggest pantomime to date. This year Trio Entertainment will return to produce The fun-filled family favourite "Jack and The Beanstalk” starring Coronation Streets and Dancing On Ice star ‘Steven Arnold” best known for his role as Ashley Peacock in Coronation Street.
It was in 1996 that he made his debut in the soap and he remained there for the next 15 years. Out of all the memorable storylines he was given, the one Steven picks as his favourite is one of the first he did.
The Northcott panto is back, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever!
When Belle, the most beautiful girl in Paris, bumps into Prince Valentin in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, love is definitely in the air. Well, until an Evil Enchantress turns up, that is, and everything suddenly gets a bit hairy. Really hairy!
A TIMELESS tale of love set in exotic ancient China is coming to Silverton this February half-term as Aladdin swops the 55B bus to ride in on his magic carpet!
The Mid Devon village will be transformed into enchanting old Peking fit for a beautiful princess, a dastardly uncle, a clever genie and love-struck Aladdin in this family-favourite pantomime – the first to be staged in the village for almost 30 years!
Staged by the Silverton Luvvies, this modern take on a time-less classic promises laughs, love, intrigue and, er, two idiotic policemen!
This year’s Northcott pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk really is a cracker! With a strong cast, pacy storyline, local references, great songs and plenty of laughs; Steve Bennett’s home-grown production proves that Exeter audiences love nothing more than a good panto to make the festive season complete.
Armed with arguably the most representative review panel in Devon, our two children, aged 5 and 10, we were oh-so-ready to do battle with the cruel Giant and encourage courageous Jack on his adventure to keep his family and village from destitution.
Panto at Exeter Corn Exchange has a reputation for bringing a novel approach to the classic storylines. This year, Devon favourite: Daniel Page ('Billy Elliot', 'Hairspray') is playing TWINS in the exotic and magical 'Aladdin'! He promises "Double the fun and double the trouble" as he is playing Abanazer and also Widow Twankey!
It's a plot twist which will allow Daniel to let out his naughty side as much as his damely nature!
