No theatre would be worth its salt without an annual panto in December. Therefore the Spa Pavilion in Felixstowe is opening its doors once again this month to the Dennis Lowe Theatre Company as they bring the story of Sleeping Beauty alive this Christmas. Families from all over Suffolk will be entertained and enthralled with this all-new version of a classic tale of devilment and derring-do. Lashings of laughter, frantic frivolity, gorgeously glittering costumes, a spectacular set, and plenty of ‘he’s behind you,’ will make the 53rd Pantomime a memorable outing for everyone. To make it as affordable as possible, tickets are held at 2017 prices from just £11.50!
