Fee fi fo fum – panto returns to the Tivoli

Fears that there would be no panto in Wimborne this Christmas have disappeared with the news that Made to Measure Productions are to stage Jack and the Beanstalk at the Tivoli.

To ensure government guidelines are adhered to, the audience will watch the show from socially-distanced seats, allowing family groups to sit together whilst maintaining a safe distance from other audience members. Additional safety measures (such as temperature checking and hand sanitiser stations) will be implemented throughout the venue.

The show will be slightly shorter than usual, at just over an hour (with no interval), but the fun starts before the curtain goes up as the cast will get you up and dancing (socially distanced,) in the pre-show warm up. 

Charlie North Lewis, manager of The Tivoli said, “We are very happy and pleased to be bringing a pantomime to you this year especially as it is such a hard time for live theatre. We will try to help to make your Christmas as good as always despite the difficulties that we are all facing.”

The ‘Grown-Ups Only’ nights return for a third year on 29 and 30 December and 2 and 4 January and with social distancing in place there are very limited seats available.

In addition, for the first time in the Tivoli Theatre’s history, there will be a relaxed performance on 22 December at 10.30am, specially adapted to accommodate people on the autism spectrum, as well as those with communication difficulties, learning disabilities or anybody who would appreciate a slightly calmer theatre experience – including very young children..

Jack and the Beanstalk runs from Friday 18 December until Monday 4 January with over 30 performances to choose from.

Tickets are available online at
