A wonderfully watery Wellington tale returns in 2022!
Our highly-acclaimed Panto team is back in the new year with a Hans Christian Andersen tale but with a twist … and a bucket fountain full of local references.
Gavin Rutherford returns as our beloved Dame: “Shelly Bay – a poor lonely widow fisherwoman”.
Join us for a Panto overflowing with laughs and toe tapping, tail flapping songs which will be sure to have the whole family leaving with a tune in their heart and a smile on their gills.

AN UNDER-THE-SEA MUST SEE!
2020 panto audiences said:
An utterly outstanding show – the writing, witty dialogue, singing costumes, performers, audience involvement … EVERYTHING!!!
‘An utterly outstanding show’
‘It appealed to the whole audience from very young children to grandparents and everyone in between. I loved all of it.’
‘I haven’t been to a Pantomime before and it blew my socks off’
