Our next pantomime is Rapunzel, the age-old story about a lonely princess trapped in a tower but longing for a life of adventure in the outside world. It will have all the hallmarks of a 'proper' Richmond pantomime. There will be amazing song and dance routines, fantastic sets and special effects, huge amounts of laughter, plenty of audience participation and, of course, those two essential elements - knitting and Tunnock's teacakes!

So, come and let your hair down for this dazzling Christmas treat that will be loved by audiences of all ages!


A fine pedigree of Richmond pantomimes

The Georgian Theatre Royal pantomime is truly legendary!! Not only is it much loved by locals but over the years it has developed a national reputation for being one of the best pantomimes around. People travel from all over the country (and even abroad) to see it. For hundreds of families,  Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it!

In 2022, The Times rated 'Pinocchio' as 'best for family fun' and went on to say "this jewel-box Georgian palyhouse is the prettiest in the land." The intimate atmosphere of this pocket sized auditorium makes it a festive experience like no other. Sleeping Beauty was chosen by The Observer as one of its top festive shows of 2018, and in 2015, The Telegraph named us as the No.1 place to see a pantomime in the UK.
