Join us at The Harlequin Theatre, Redhill, this Christmas season for a dose of traditional pantomime mayhem, laughter and escapism for the whole family.

Come to the ball!

The cast of this year's Harlequin pantoThis year’s panto is Cinderella, brought to the stage with Paul Holman Associates, and you are all invited to the ball!

The nation’s favourite Olympic ski jumper Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards, makes his pantomime debut, starring as Cinderella’s down-on-his-luck father, Baron Hardup.

This year’s stellar cast includes Casualty’s Rebecca Wheatley as our Fairy Godmother, comedian Phil Reid as Buttons and irrepressible, award winning uglies Dean Horner and Oliver Gray.

It wouldn’t be a Harlequin panto without much-loved Redhill regular Simon Bashford, who hangs up his skirts this year to embrace the role of Dandini in this sparkling Christmas show.

Featuring dazzling costumes, spectacular scenery, breath-taking special effects and a huge sprinkling of Fairy Godmother magic, this classic rags to riches tale proves that dreams really do come true.

Cinderella will run at the Harlequin between 9 and 31 December 2022.

The Night Before Christmas

Alongside panto this year audiences can also enjoy The Night Before Christmas in the intimacy of the Harlequin’s Waller Studio.

This charming family show, which runs from 16 and 24 December, promises an unforgettable adventure full of magic, mischief and festive fun!

Immerse yourself in the wonder of Christmas with this brand-new production for three to eight year olds, featuring plenty of audience interaction, classic Christmas songs and the enchanting presence of Santa Claus himself live on stage.

What’s more, there are special discounts available if you book both shows.
