The Floral Pavilion has been successfully presenting professional pantomime for 47 years and has firmly established a reputation all over Merseyside and the North West for traditional family productions. A key element of the theatre's programming is for the development of a family audience with regular matinee performances throughout the year. The theatre is building good relationships with schools in the area and as such has seen the number of schools performances nearly doubling in the last three years. We aim to produce a show that is unique to our venue and draws on collaborative skills to achieve the highest quality and value for money for our audiences. Theatre seeks an experienced production company to work with to produce an annual pantomime for the next three years 2018-2020. For 2018/19 the chosen pantomime has already been confirmed as Aladdin and is on sale as of December 2017
