Primary School Children Experience the Fun of Panto

Thanks to a combined generous grant by KCC Thanet Councillors Barry Lewis (Margate Labour) & Karen Constantine (Ramsgate Labour), and subsidy by Your Leisure, over 200 primary school children who wouldn’t otherwise have had the opportunity, came to the Theatre Royal this week to see this year’s Panto 'Aladdin'.

Lucky children from Dame Janet Primary Academy & St Anthony’s School saw the show in the last days of the school term & like the 2000 other schoolchildren who are coming to see “Aladdin” this year, they cheered, booed, sang along & had the most wonderful time!

Pam Hardiman, Programme Manager said “This year’s panto is our biggest & best ever! We’re delighted to be working again with the Wicked Productions team, who have pulled out all the stops to bring another top-quality traditional pantomime to our beautiful theatre. The performers are all stars of course, but I’d like to give credit to all the backstage heroes & front of house volunteers who have worked tirelessly throughout the Christmas season. To bring children to see the show, who wouldn’t otherwise have managed it, is the cherry on the cake for us all.”
