The 2016 panto: Prince Bendover in Boots.

The RVT panto is back, Oh yes it is! A very untraditional, anarchic and naughty take on the traditional panto bought up to date for your adult years.

This gloriously riotous show is now in its 10th year and we can’t wait to serve you another generous helping of poetry and high minded art – yeah right! Grab a drink, get your smut on and get ready to holler along with the rest of them ‘oh yes you will!”

This years’ unconventional offering is Prince Bendover in Boots, a tale about a really simple lad; Cumalot the millers son, Prince Bendover – a horny royal, a Pushy Princess, an Ogre and a Cobbler (who all look remarkably similar) and a larger than life dame called Bubbles with a sass mouthed cat, Dolly, wearing a powerful pair of thigh length, jewel encrusted, BDSM, patent leather Boots that confers stardom and power.

Will Princess Pushy get her Prince and why does she seem so evil? Can Dolly the Cat help Cumalot to find his fortune or even count to five without hesitation? Will the evil Ogre realise his plan to control the entire kingdom and why is Dame Bubbles so confused about her son? And what is that tingling Dame Bubbles feels whenever the pussy cat is near?

Another rip-roaring panto from the RVT filled with panto classics, hissing, booing and enough songs, dance and glitz to make a Britney Spears concert look positively pedestrian, all bought up to date for you big dirty kids aged 18 and over. Featuring some of our favourite drag queens. Book now!

Praise for our previous panto’s

‘a panto that totally enthralled an audience that were loving every minute of it. This is a show with a huge feel-good quality to it. Pure Pantomine perfection does not come much better than this’Gayabouttown

‘The physical comedy is superb and the innuendos have the crowd in fits as interactive cheering sees a room full of people shouting “we love Dick!” to the protagonist. I challenge even the most humourless of prudes to go along and not crack a smile’ – The Weekender

 “This probably isn’t one to bring your gran along to – famously filthy and brazenly bawdy” Sosogay

“If you thought panto was a bit camp then get ready for a show more flamboyant than a Christmas tree onesie.” Funny Women

‘is a feel-good festive slice of romance, innuendo and twisted dark humour. A must see!’ – QX Magazine
