Panto WILL be going ahead in 2015

Fri 19 Dec 2014

We’ve got some huge, HUGE news and can officially confirm that the 2015 Christmas Panto WILL go ahead! Hooray!

After taking a year off due to the closure of the Assembly Rooms following the fire back in March, we are excited to announce that together with pantomime producers Paul Holman Associates, we will be staging the most magical and mystical story of all – Aladdin, at the new Derby Arena! Paul says

"We are delighted to be returning for 2015 to present Derby's traditional pantomime with Derby LIVE. We will be bringing a new production - Aladdin - which we think will be the East Midlands biggest and most glittery pantomime in 2015!"

You are invited to take a magical carpet ride through a tale of eastern promise and adventure, where you will discover a magical world of make-believe. Follow loveable rogue Aladdin on his quest for hidden treasure as he tries to win the heart of the beautiful Princess Jasmine. 

This fairy-tale story will have all your favourite pantomime characters, including the Genie of the Lamp, the Slave of the Ring, evil sorcerer Uncle Abanazer, Aladdin’s no-good brother Wishee Washee, and the ultimate pantomime dame, Widow Twankey! Find out if the Genie can make all your wishes come true in this spectacular production, full of fun and laughter, which will captivate both the youngest and oldest in your family.

With fabulous new sets & costumes, hilarious slapstick comedy, high energy music & dance routines, and lots of audience participation, Aladdin will fulfil your three wishes for Christmas 2015. Join us as we open sesame on a pantomime of pure sparkle and shine inside the incredible new Derby Arena!

Aladdin will take place from Mon 7 Dec 2015 – Sun 3 Jan 2016 at the Derby Arena with prices from £10, with concessions, group, school and family tickets available.

Tickets are available to book now!
