LONDON: The Customs House in South Shields has unveiled its 2015/2016 pantomime will be Alice in Wonderland. This year’s seasonal show Little Red Riding Hood is three weeks into its run and has already sold more than 22,000 tickets.
And despite Alice in Wonderland having only been on sale a matter of days more than 1,500 have already been snapped up – 12 months ahead of its opening.
Customs House Executive Director Ray Spencer, MBE, who is currently starring dame Granny Hood in Little Red Riding Hood, said: “Alice in Wonderland seemed an obvious choice as the novel and The Customs House are both celebrating 150 years in 2015.
This is the first time Little Red Riding Hood has been performed at The Customs House and it has been getting great reviews and audience feedback so we’re all very excited to debut Alice in Wonderland next year.”
