Panto season is upon us and the Savoy Youth Theatre have pulled out all the stops to give you swashbuckling entertainment for all the family.

Spontaneous Productions, under the helm of Sam Densham, transports you to the Seven Seas in search of pink pearls stolen by pirates.

Calypso, the spirit of the sea, was sent by Poseidon to track down the pearls but is waylaid by the pesky pirate Long John Silver and his parrot, played by talented West End star, Robert Traynor.

With a cast including panto pro Kevin Tillett as the Dame, Joshua Takacs, Alison Hellings, Nicholas Benjamin and Chez Dunford and a host of youth theatre actors and actresses, it’s going to be the best panto the county has to offer this Christmas.

With tailored performances for schools between December 12-16, a relaxed performance on Wednesday December 14 at 6.30pm, (no bangs or flashes) and two adult only shows on 15th and 16th at 7.30pm (ideal for the office party or just to let your hair down) and with the run of performances ending on January 2, 2023, there is a show for everyone.
