Our 4-actor touring company is poised to bring you 'Goldilocks', subject to government guidance.
Our primary concern is to keep our fantastic actors and our school communities, safe.
The government has published a 5-Step plan for the performing arts, which applies to our Panto because we turn schools and halls into a 'theatre' for our visit. We are currently on Stage 2 of the 5-Step plan, and will monitor any updates closely.
Any decisions regarding this years panto season will be taken at the end of September, when we have a clearer idea of how things are progressing.
If you have already booked, or are thinking about booking,
please be assured that there is no obligation or financial liability if we have to postpone this years season.
Now booking for winter 2020/21

“We LOVED the whole performance! It was wonderful to see our less confident children up, dancing and smiling. Lots of feedback from parents saying they went home singing songs, dancing and drawing pictures of the event”
“It was fantastic. Children in all year groups were engaged throughout. Very well set up and performed. Audience participation was great. Children enjoyed the well known songs”
“Once again another amazing performance. The performance was perfectly pitched for the primary age range and the audience was actively engaged with the play. Great to see instruments being played and children joining in in a variety of ways. "
“Great adaptation of the story, humour was perfect for the children and adults. LOVED the inclusion of the audience members! All adults and children really enjoyed every aspect, thank you”
Up close, immersive and very interactive,
a Treehouse Panto is always a unique experience!
We always stage our Pantomime in-the-round, as it allows the whole audience to see and hear properly. Its a very immersive experience, with the actors centre stage the whole time, surrounded by and interacting with the audience. The action feels VERY close, especially if there's a hungry dragon or a sword fight or a chase going on!
Around 30 audience members can have a small part in the show, from minor speaking parts to interactive scenery (strictly volunteers only - we never pick on people!). It makes each performance unique to its audience, and adds a layer of fun and involvement far beyond dragging unwilling participants onto stage, or just shouting from your seat.
We are a small company, our cast are very skilled, and every show is written for specific actors to perform using their unique talents. With the freedom to harness the unique skills of our cast members, our shows include live music played on real instruments by actors on stage, stilt-walking, gymnastics, rapping, sword fighting....things which make live theatre memorable and exciting
