SNADS Pantomime for 2022 is the classic tale of The Little Mermaid. It is brought to life in an action packed, animated show. A young mermaid enters into a deal with a wicked sea octopus (Iphelia) and swaps her voice for a pair of legs in order to find her handsome Prince. This pantomime is filled with lots of laughs, fantastic costumes and larger than life characters. Excitingly new to SNADS, they will be using animation to make things come to life. Directed by Paula Skinner With low level auditorium lights, no loud bangs or flashing lights, it will be particularly suitable for those with Autism, Special Needs and Learning Difficulties who would not normally be able to access live theatre. There will be open access to the Hall during this performance for those needing ‘time out’ and most importantly nobody will mind if your child makes noises, calls out or chatters! Tickets for this performance only will be at the reduced rate of £5.00. Please phone or call in at The Exchange to book your tickets and to talk to a member of staff – it will be helpful for them to understand your requirements (i.e. raked seating or open area), especially if you will be bringing a wheelchair or push chair/buggy.
