Sanderstead’s ready to set sail with Sinbad for their 81st panto

The panto season is in full swing… Oh yes it is!

The Sanderstead Dramatic Club cast in rehearsal for Sinbad

And in Sanderstead, rehearsals are well underway for the local dramatic club’s annual performance, which next month will be Sinbad The Sailor.

It will be the 81st annual panto production staged by the Sanderstead Dramatic Club, which was formed in 1907.

Audiences at All Saints Parish Hall will be able to join the adventure with Sinbad and his friends as they chase the evil Prince Tariq on their quest to rescue the Princess and the fabled Star of Mesopotamia. Along the way, there will be fun for all the family, with plenty of music, dancing, laughter and, of course, audience participation.

Sinbad the Sailor runs January 11 to 18 at All Saints Parish Hall, Onslow Gardens, Sanderstead CR2 9AB.

“With 80 years experience of pantomimes, Sanderstead Dramatic Club is well versed in the traditions of this unique form of theatre, and maintaining these, while at the same time moving with the times, are the trademarks of the club and Sinbad The Sailor is no exception,” said John Desbottes, the club chairman.

Tickets start from £6 and you can buy them on their website at

Or check this website again on Monday for a chance to win one of three pairs of tickets for the Sinbad The Sailor pantomime.
