We were due to stage Dick Whittington as our pantomime this year at both The Coliseum Theatre, Aberdare and The Park & Dare Theatre, Treorchy, but social distancing measures which are vital for the wellbeing of cast, audiences and staff mean that staging the panto is impossible this year.
We pride ourselves on being theatre makers, creating and producing our very own panto. We had assembled our fabulous cast, built the set and made the costumes, we are devastated that we can’t share all this work with you this year as planned, but we are working hard to bring our magical panto to life in time to kick start the festive celebrations next year.
Customers who had already booked tickets will be contacted over the coming weeks to arrange either transferring their tickets to a performance next year or taking a full refund.
When you watch a film in 3D, you feel as though you’ve stepped inside it. Superb image quality – crisp, bright and ultra-realistic and stunning surround sound bring the story to life around you. You’re not just experiencing the entertainment; you’re right inside the entertainment.
Open to everyone, but particularly appropriate for anyone who may find the usual theatre/cinema environment challenging, due to an Autism Spectrum Condition, a learning disability, or a fear of the dark, loud noises or confined spaces.
Relaxed Performances/Screenings provide a relaxed environment, where elements are adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and leaving and re-entering the auditorium during the performance/screening.
Designated 'chill-out' areas are provided outside the auditorium with activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.
