THERE will be sea-faring adventures at Bromsgrove's Artrix in the days leading up to Christmas when All and Sundry's annual pantomime Sinbad the Sailor takes place at the School Drive venue.
The traditional panto, which runs from Wednesday (December 19) to next Sunday (December 23), boasts song, visual comedy, slapstick and plenty of audience participation.
The story centres around Sinbad, who has returned from his latest voyage with promises of a good fortune.
But, his mum's excitement soon diminishes when he reveals he has swapped all the treasure he has collected for a 'magic sea-shell covered sword' which wil lead him to untold riches.
Sinbad then meets the beautiful Princess Jasmine, but unfortunately, the Royal Vizier has designs on her and her father's kingdom and wants Sinbad out of the way, leading to him trying to frame the pantomime hero.
A shipwreck, en route to the island of Loadsawonga, sees them cast into a kingdom under the sea, where they meet some strange and wonderful characters.
On the island is a devious High Priestess and The Vizier who has followed Sinbad there. The pair then do all they can to try to prevent the panto from having its traditional happy ending.
Tickets for Wednesday and Thursday (December 19 and 20) are £12 (£11 for over 60s and under 16s) or £37 for a family ticket (two adults and two children).
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday (December 21 to 23), the tickets are £13.50 (£12 for over 60s and under 16s) or £41 for a family ticket.
