Tickets have gone on sale for the first panto of the year to be announced for Merseyside.
St Helens Theatre Royal has confirmed an all-new spectacular production of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as its Christmas pantomime for 2021.
The annual panto family show has become a firm favourite with audiences, making it a real highlight of the festive season year after year.
Producers Regal Entertainments are delighted to bring the exciting story of Goldilocks, her three furry friends, and all the fun of the circus to the St Helens stage this Christmas time with an all-star cast to be announced soon.
Goldilocks, with the help of the Three Bears, tries to save her Big Top from a rival circus owner. The brand new magical show promises family fun, unbelievable circus tricks, and madcap comedy capers.
The show also promises high production values, stunning costumes, laugh out loud comedy, a smash-hit selection of chart hits to sing and dance along to – all highlights which regular Regal Entertainments’ audiences forward to experiencing.
Theatregoers are advised that Goldilocks had previously been announced as the Easter half-term pantomime, however due to Government guidelines still being in place, it is not possible to go ahead.

Theatre manager Chantelle Nolan said: "With the vaccination programme rolling out at a fantastic pace and the Government roadmap revealed, there is a glimmer of light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Everyone is craving live theatre and escapism – and there's nothing quite like a pantomime to bring out your inner child.
"We are desperate to bring pantomime back to the St Helens Stage after having last year's Christmas panto run cut short. We've all missed out on making so many special memories – so let's make Christmas 2021 one to remember. We have an incredibly fun, exciting and magical show in store for audiences, and we cannot wait to see the auditorium filled with joy and laughter – just as it should be."
St Helens Theatre Royal will ensure that any Government guidelines still required in December will be in place to ensure the safety of theatregoers, venue staff, cast and crew.
