Nelson panto players prepare for Rapunzel

The annual pantomime runs Thursday, December 5 to Sunday, December 8.



The cast of the Capitol Theatre’s 26th annual Christmas Pantomime have been hard at work preparing to bring the story of Rapunzel to the stage. Set in a small Russian village that’s under the spell of an evil witch, this version of the classic fairy tale follows a noble prince who is on a quest to rescue a mythical maiden. On his way he meets gypsies, a dancing bear, a disgruntled hog-caller, a mysterious fairy, and many fabulous characters. The pantomime is a fundraiser for the Capitol Theatre. The show runs from Thursday, December 5 to Sunday, December 8. Tickets are on sale now at the Capitol Theatre box office.
