Halloween panto that has some bite

A pantomime in October might seem a bit premature.

But when that panto is the creepy, scary, and spine tingling Dracula then it might make sense to have it on around Halloween.

And although children are not compulsory, they are welcome to attend the spooky performance at the Limelight Theatre on Saturday, October 26.

Especially created as a Halloween pantomime, Dracula welcomes an audience from eight year olds to 80 year olds and promises plenty of shivers and frights mixed in with traditional slapstick panto fun.

The show was written as a tongue in cheek two-man pantomime.

Producer and performer Pat Abernethy said: “The main joke of the show is that Dave Marsden and myself play all the parts.

“At various times we each play the dame and Dracula.

“It’s a very quick change show and that’s where a lot of the fun comes from.

“It opened eight years ago and is performed like a genuine pantomime with all the familiar well loved elements everyone expects.”

Join Isosceles Theatre for a bewildering series of costume changes, hilarious spoof comedy and first class fun for all the family, with only the dame and a songsheet between the naughty Count and world domination.

The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £11.50, concessions £9.50.
