The Theatre's Annual Pantomime!

Rescheduled from Christmas 2020.

Rapunzel has been stuck in a castle tower for eighteen years, imprisoned by a witch’s magical powers. But she’s not the sort of girl to let that defeat her! With the help of her Nanny, a charming yet cheeky Prince, and an awful lot of hair, she’s going to escape into the big wide world.

Knights and maidens, sword fights and sea-storms, sweeties and singalongs – this joyful reimagining of the classic tale has it all!

So let your hair down and enjoy the latest and greatest adventure from Chipping Norton Theatre, the home of traditional family panto.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our Backstage Tours due to Covid Security. We hope to be able to offer this next year and apologise for any inconvenience.
