Pantomime 2019/20: The most expensive and Cheapest Pantos this season!

Pantomimes are a huge business here is the UK and with Christmas just around the corner theatres, actors and creatives are all getting ready for the Christmas season and their runs in the 2019/20 pantomime season. 

If you've followed us recently, you may remember our article 'Theatre Tickets: Every West End shows top and lowest price ticket!', a piece in which we compared all the official shows box office top and lowest price tickets. With the pantomime season coming up, we decided to do the same for these productions. 

With huge pantomimes such as the annual Palladium and QDOS productions to smaller scale ones across the country, we have looked at over 180 productions up and down the UK to compare the prices. 

Firstly, lets look at the popularity of these pantomimes within the ones we surveyed. With a winning 35 productions, the pantomime classic Cinderella is the most popular one this year. Coming in a close second is Aladdin with 30 productions, third is shared by the usually much more popular Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the perhaps the not so popular Jack and the Beanstalk. The lowest produced pantomimes this year include Rapunzel and Red Riding Hood (both not traditional pantomimes) with only 1 production each and coming close are Puss in Boots, Mother Goose, The Wizard of Oz and this years London Palladium Pantomime, Goldilocks and the Three Bears with just two productions each.
