The legendary Rock ‘N’ Roll Panto returns to City Varieties Music Hall this festive season, promising to entertain Leeds audiences young and old into January 2018.
This year’s spectacular, Aladdin, was the first of the Rock’n’Roll Pantos which opened at the newly-renovated City Varieties in 2011. A very different format from the previous style of panto, the production showcased a talented troupe of actor-musicians who performed all the classic hit songs and music live on stage.
Since then, Cinderella, Jack & the Beanstalk, Dick Whittington, Robin Hood and Sleeping Beauty have all been given the Rock’n’Roll treatment with increasing success and a whole new Leeds tradition has been born.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto has all the bearings of a traditional panto – audience interaction, custard pies, slapstick comedy – with the added bonus of live music played on stage by the actors and a playlist of hits from the 60s, 70s and beyond that gets the audience rocking in the aisles.
Aladdin the Rock ‘N’ Roll Panto is at City Varieties Music Hall from Friday 24th Nov 2017 to Sunday 7th January 2018. Tickets are priced from £15.50 to £26.50. (Prices include a £1 booking fee. Where applicable, a £1 charge for postage will also be payable.) Book online at cityvarieties.co.uk or call Box Office on 0113 243 08 08.
