In a change to advertised plans, we will now stage the fairest pantomime in the land this Christmas, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, starring Danny Adams, Clive Webb, Chris Hayward and introducing Joe McElderry.

We have all been really looking forward to Humpty Dumpty – which is a brand new title that the creative team have been working on for over a year – however, having previously rescheduled the performance run from 2020/21, additional lockdowns have caused further delays to preparing for the production. As a result, the decision has now been made to bring back one of the theatre’s most popular pantomime titles, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, for the 2021/2022 season.

Existing ticket holders will be contacted by the theatre. No action is needed as all previous bookings for Humpty Dumpty remain valid and will be automatically transferred to the new show for the same date and seats as the original booking. 

A message from Michael Harrison, producer and director of the Newcastle Theatre Royal pantomime: “Whilst myself and the creative team have been working on Humpty Dumpty – which is a brand new title – for over a year, and are hugely excited about the script and designs, the pandemic has seriously delayed our ability to access workshops and start building an entirely new show from scratch. To make sure it’s as magical on the stage as it is on paper, we’ve therefore taken the decision to keep this title for a future season. Now for 2021, we are thrilled to be bringing you Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Philip Bernays, Chief Executive of Newcastle Theatre Royal added: “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was last performed on our stage during the 2014/2015 season and is one of our most popular pantomimes ever. We know that once again the team will light up the stage and give our audiences the spectacular show that they so richly deserve.”
