Our Relaxed Performance is on Saturday 17 December at 10.30am.

Our relaxed performance is intended specifically to be sensitive to, and accepting of, audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including (but not limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions, people living with dementia, parents with very young children on their first trip to the theatre, anyone with sensory and communication disorders, or people with learning disabilities.

Get ready for a hair raising adventure about the girl with the magical golden hair as Polka Dot Pantomimes and the Guildhall Arts Centre proudly present RAPUNZEL – A Tangled Tale! 

The one and only JOHN HIGHTON is back in his 8th year as Dame Betty Bouffant along with another familiar face, RICHARD KORT as King Crumble. 

Joining them will be KATIE FRANCES as Fairy Sunshine, HATTIE JOHNSON as Gothel, WILLIAM SPENCER as Flynn and STACY MAHER as Rapunzel.

This festive extravaganza about the lonely Princess with the super hair trapped in a tower but longing for a life of adventure in the outside world will keep audiences of all ages amused, entertained and enthralled. As always there will be plenty of audience participation, modern songs to sing along to, huge amounts of laughter and spectacular special effects including an incredible flying jet pack! 

So let your hair down this Christmas at Grantham’s biggest and brightest pantomime and book for RAPUNZEL – A Tangled Tale!

Book fast to avoid disappointment!
