For one night only

Back on the road for their 19th year, the Market Theatre Company are out to corrupt another fairy-tail classic beyond recognition with an Adult Panto like no other.

The fearless company of 3 actors return to bring you an evening of corny jokes, raunchy plots and blatant sexual innuendo using a minimum of set props and costume.

Get ready for another evening of slick, fast-moving, farcical fun and bawdy sexual innuendo(did we mention the innuendo?) for adults only.

Not suitable for under 16’s.
