It's time for Page to Stage!

Posted on 6 October 2016

Our Page to Stage series of events follow the creative process of transforming the ideas of the pantomime into the glittering spectacle you see on our Main Stage.

Written and directed by the Belgrade’s own Panto Dame, Iain Lauchlan, Dick Whittington is a brilliant comedy, packed with sing-a-long songs, amazing sets and extravagant costumes. The pantomime is an unmissable Christmas tradition, an enchanting tale of fame and fortune, heroes and villains, cats and rats for all the family.

This year, our Page to Stage includes:

Workshop Tour – Thursday, 13 October, 2.30pm (at the workshop)
