• Polka Dot Pantomimes is managed by people who have been involved in the entertainment industry all their lives with experience in West End productions, major UK tours and cabaret shows.

    Every year we strive to produce classic British pantomimes that entertain audiences throughout the UK to almost any sized theatre/studio venue, providing quality seasonal entertainment for all ages. We work tirelessly to create productions that blend traditional pantomime with modern technology, packed with all the elements people have come to expect from us, such as high energy dance routines, glittering costumes, spectacular scenery, and a great big dollop of audience participation!

    Since our inception we quickly established ourselves as market leaders in pantomime and continue to grow in popularity, taking on new venues each year. We hope that in the future we can continue to produce many more throughout the length and breadth of the country.

  • Children’s Chorus Teams

    Sadly, due to ongoing uncertainty regarding restrictions and for health and safety reasons, we will no longer be able to feature a Children’s Chorus in any of our pantomimes this year.

    Whilst we had hoped to press on with auditions for several of our venues, the health and wellbeing of everyone involved is key and we must ensure our productions are as safe as possible.

    We realise that this decision is extremely disappointing but we hope you can understand the many difficulties we are facing this year. We can’t wait to welcome back our amazing children’s chorus teams next year and hope to see you in the audience this Christmas.
