Christmas Pantomime opens tomorrow at Capitol Theatre

This family-friendly, musical comedy features around 50 local actors of all ages and experience levels.



Rapunzel is trapped in a tower, the fairy has lost her magic want, the village is under a curse, and a dancing bear is cooking borscht for a gypsy camp — it’s a situation only a lovesick prince could unravel.

See how the story plays out at the Capitol Theatre’s 26th annual Christmas Pantomime opening tomorrow night. This family-friendly, musical comedy features around 50 local actors of all ages and experience levels.

The event is a fundraiser for the Capitol Theatre.
