The Portobello Pantomime are crowdfunding their 25th Anniversary show this year – a modern take on Han’s Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen. Supporters of this well-loved and well received west London tradition have until December 14 to raise just over £5,700 to help the production cover essential costs such as costume hire, set building and publicity.

The production is made possible by hard working and dedicated volunteers, while all box office profits will be given to The Shepherd’s Bush Families Project and Solace Women’s Aid.

The Tabernacle (W11 2AY) – 14 – 17 December 2016.

The village of Portobello is a small, parochial kind of place, and the Elders work hard to keep it that way: mirrors, outsiders and smartphones are all banned. But when the malevolent Snow Queen and her narcissistic harem take their quest to gain more followers to the village, Portobello’s insulated idyll comes under threat.

This year’s Panto is a 21st Century update of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairytale. It also sees the return of the Panto’s founding mother Anna Chancellor, who will be calling the shots from the dugout. If technology is a drug – and sometimes it feels like one – then what, precisely are the side effects? All will be revealed at the Tab this Christmas…
