Gwyn Hall, Neath

The most magical pantomime of all time comes to Gwyn Hall in the New Year. The classic rags to riches tale, Cinderella is a breath-taking family extravaganza with glittering sets, gorgeous costumes and the latest hits that everyone knows and loves. Lose yourself in this classic fairytale with all the much-loved characters, packed full of slapstick comedy in a traditional setting and there’ll be plenty of audience participation.

Cinderella is the ultimate theatrical treat with something for everyone to enjoy and a family ticket would make a great gift for someone special.


2 - 24 Dec

Jack & the Beanstalk

Coliseum, Aberdare & Park & Dare, Treorchy

A traditional live family panto is back on stage in Rhondda Cynon Taff with the tale of poor Jack, sent to market by his mother to sell the family’s treasured cow. Little does he know that swapping dear Daisy for a bag of magic beans will lead to an adventure he will never forget!

With a castle in the clouds, a golden hen and a larger-than-life beanstalk with a very mean giant at the top of it, this traditional family panto is full of magical special effects, spectacular scenery and giant-sized comedy.


14 - 17 Dec


The Dylan Thomas Theatre

One of the most popular pantos of all time, oh yes it is! With everything you could wish for from a fun family show. Aladdin fights the evil Abanazar, woos the princess and tries to please his demanding mother, the effervescent Widow Twanky.
