Tyne Theatre & Opera House Pantomime Makes Record Sales

The Tyne Theatre and Opera House has announced that their 2019 pantomime, Aladdin, broke their sales record for the second year running.


It was confirmed that the pantomime, brought to Newcastle by theatre production company Enchanted Entertainment, saw a record number of customers entertained with over 26,500 viewers during its time at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House over the festive period.


Jo Johnson, Theatre Director told us:

“We are delighted with the continued and growing success of the Pantomime. Enchanted Entertainment and the talented cast and crew presented a truly magical show which saw a record number of customers through our doors and prompted a host of positive feedback from audiences.


“We are looking forward to welcoming the team back to our stage for The Wizard of Oz at Easter, and again at Christmas for Sleeping Beauty.”


Due to the continued success of the festive pantomime, Enchanted Entertainment will be returning to the Tyne Theatre and Opera House this Easter for a two-day showing of their Easter panto The Wizard of Oz, starring comedy legend Bobby Davro as the Scarecrow.


Enchanted Entertainment’s Artistic Director, Guy Pascall said: “The Tyne Theatre and Opera House is the most stunning theatre and it’s been a pleasure to produce our pantomime at such a beautiful venue, once again.


“Our pantomime, Aladdin, saw packed out audiences in the theatre and North East families always enjoy a great panto. Our next Christmas pantomime Sleeping Beauty, is already in the works and we’re looking to make it the biggest and best yet.”


The regions’ charities also benefited from the production, which saw North East locals generate over £7000.00 for four charities including Cash For Kids, RNLI, Myeloma UK and Tyne Theatre Preservation Trust.


Guy Pascall concluded:


“We’re looking forward to returning this April, for our fourth Easter pantomime. This year our production will be The Wizard of Oz, also starring panto favourite Charlie Richmond as the Lion, and will be on stage at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House for two days over the Easter weekend.


“We’re proud to have contributed to the success of a great venue and we look forward to working with Jo Johnson and her team at the theatre again in the future.”
