Main House Theatre  |  7 - 31 December 2024

HEAVE HO me hearties, come join our crew, 
We’ve got pirates and mermaids

and baddies to boo! 

There’s a mystery to solve with a map and a key, 
On our epic adventure out on the High Seas… 

Packed with magical moments and swash-buckling comedy, The Adventures of Sinbad is suitable for everyone, making it a perfect treat for all!

The Adventures of Sinbad is written and directed by The Malting’s very own Wendy Payn and produced by the same team who brought you Snow White, Ali Baba and the Four Tea Thieves and last year’s best-selling Cinderella!

This year’s festive extravaganza also sees the return of some very familiar cast members and our production team will be working hard behind the scenes to make this year’s panto sparkle and shine, bringing laughter and joy and making memories for everyone!

The Adventures of Sinbad has a running time of 2 hours.

The performance of The Adventures of Sinbad on Sunday 15 December at 12 noon will provide a British Sign Language interpretation and audio description.

Audio description – delivered by Christopher McKiddie

During this performance, Christopher will use the natural pauses in the action to deliver a live narration to the listener’s personal headset.

BSL interpretation – delivered by Christy Dodds

The BSL interpreted element of this performance of The Adventures of Sinbad involves Christy joining the actors on stage, which means that you don’t need to choose between following the action or the language. We would recommend that anyone wishing to take full advantage of the BSL interpretation should book tickets in rows C to H, ideally in seats 1 – 12 if available.

So, book your tickets soon and make the Maltings Pantomime this year’s magical Christmas treat for everyone to enjoy!
