The New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich is kicking off its 15th year in dramatic style with a brand new rock and roll pantomime.

Written by Peter Rowe, and performed in traditional actor-musician style, this take on the legendary tale of King Arthur mixes music and magic, swordplay and slapstick into a wicked festive brew with a classic rock ‘n’ roll kick.

Join Merlin, Guinevere, Kay and the stunning Dame Bernadette Broadbottom to discover who pulled the sword from that stone, on the quest to unite the seven kingdoms by crowning the bravest knight as the rightful King of all the Britons.

Expect to hear favourite tunes including I’m Going To Rain On Your Parade, You Got The Love, Come On Baby Light My Fire and Backstreet’s Back.

The show runs until January 30. To book, call the box office on 01473 295900 or see wolseytheatre.co.uk
