The build up to pantomime at Richmond Theatre is our most magical time of year. Get a taste of the fun in store with this year's swashbuckling offering Peter Pan by checking out some pics from the ghost of panto past!
We love nothing more than to decorate our theatre with all the Christmassy trimmings to make your experience extra special. For Peter Pan this December, children (and adults who never wanted to grow up!) will be greeted by a Neverland-themed foyer.
We're always on the lookout for the biggest tree we can find!
Let's hope for a white Christmas...

zooming backwards and forwards between dressing rooms, rehearsals and press
...And it all leads to the spectacular shows themselves, full of dazzling dancing, glittering costumes and wonderful songs.
We've been graced by some amazing star performers over the years. And we're delighted to say that playing everyone's favourite booable bad guy Captain James Hook this Christmas is a bona fide Hollywood legend...
