SHREWSBURY'S Theatre Severn has announced that 2021’s pantomime will be the spectacular, swashbuckling Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan.

Following the postponement of 2020’s pantomime Beauty and the Beast, and further discussions with producers Evolution, a change of title has been agreed which will see pantomime return to Shrewsbury bigger and better than ever before.

Once again, the show will star Shropshire’s legendary pantomime dame Brad Fitt, as Mrs Smee, and will be written by regular pantomime producer Paul Hendy.

David Jack, Shropshire Council’s theatre services manager, said: “The government’s roadmap announcement on February 22 has given us plenty of optimism for the year ahead, and we can’t wait to share a magical panto season with everyone again.

"We’ve been so grateful for the understanding and support we have received from our audiences following last year’s postponement.

"Peter Pan will feature everything you’ve come to know and love about Theatre Severn pantomimes, and more.

“All existing tickets remain valid and will be transferred to the same performance date and time, to ensure that ticketholders retain their favourite seats.

If you have tickets and wish to check or discuss your booking, please don’t hesitate to contact our Box Office team on 01743 281281 or via email to”


Paul Hendy, writer and producer, added: “It’s been such a difficult year for everyone that, by Christmas, I’m sure everybody will be ready to have a really good time.

"I promise exactly that, with the most spectacular pantomime of them all, Peter Pan.”

Theatre Severn confirmed that more than 20,000 tickets for this year’s pantomime have been carried over or snapped up by audiences already.

It opens at Theatre Severn on Wednesday, December 1 2021 and runs until Sunday, January 2 2022.
