Kings Head / Charles Court Opera 2019 Pantomime: The Nativity Panto

Here at Theatre Breaks we love a panto, and we are  delighted to hear that Charles Court Opera will return to The King’s Head, Islington, with The Nativity Panto – A Not-So Silent Night which will run from 29 November 2019 to 11 January 2020.

Kings Head / Charles Court Opera 2019 Pantomime: The Nativity Panto London Theatre Breaks

Charles Court Opera understand Panto almost as much as we love it and if it is anything like their previous offerings (Buttons: A Cinderella Story, King Tut: A Pyramid Panto, Pinocchio and Mirror Mirror: A Snow White Pantomime) those who venture to North London will be in for avery meery Christmas indeed: Oh Yes They Will!

All our favourite characters from the Nativity story will help to tell the story with a generous helping of magic, whimsy and Christmas cheer.

Irreverent yet respectful is the approach with musical numbers, laugh-out-loud puns and – as always – the entirely unexpected.

King’s Head Artistic director, Adam Spreadbury-Maher said, “I’m delighted to welcome back CCO for another year of fantastic mischief, witty imagination and boutique quality panto. They deliver a fresh, brand new telling of this special story that you won’t have to wait till Christmas Day to open.

From adult-only evening performances through to family matinees, The Nativity Panto is perfect for parents and children, couples, groups of friends and office parties.

CCO Artistic Director and co-writer, John Savournin said, “I’m butterflies-in-my-stomach excited (in that child-like ‘it’s Christmas Eve and I can’t sleep’ sort of way) to create this year’s pantomime.

And I am “butterflies-in-my-stomach excited” about seeing it.

The Nativity Panto will be directed by John Savournin with original music and lyrics by David Eaton.
