King Arthur in Space – the Panto, by Loz Keal
Directed by Marc Batten

The team that bought you the sell-out Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella are proud to present King Arthur in Space - the Panto.  An old fashioned, futuristic pantomime for children of all ages…  Coming this Christmas in a galaxy that isn’t very far away…   Join us for TTC’s annual pantomime - cheer the clean-cut Arthur and space vixen Gwen, boo the evil and greedy Mrs Morgan and her comedy hench-people as we re-imagine the Arthurian legend with added robots, aliens and Merlin, the talking computer.

All the pantomime conventions you’d expect including bad jokes, plenty of audience participation and a few surprises!

Reading – Sunday 25th August, 6.00 pm
Please come along for a fun evening of early cracker jokes and panto gags. We will also be letting you know about some of the surprises we have in store to make this another fabulous, family Christmas show.

We are looking for 10½ principals and small but perfectly formed teams of chorus and dancers.
