The company is looking forward to reviving this festive tradition for families across North Wales and Chester.

This performance will be both written and directed by local panto legend Peter Swingler OBE, founder and former chair of Tip Top.

Speaking about the return of Tip Top's Pantomime to Wrexham, Mr Swingler said: "I am thrilled to return to Wrexham’s William Aston Hall, where my pantomime journey began in 1973."

He also added: "I am very much looking forward to getting started on the production, starting with auditions which will be held in June."

Alongside this, Tip Top Productions are gearing up for other performances including the classic Broadway musical "Sweet Charity" at Theatr Clwyd; and "Bouncers", a perennial favourite set to run at Storyhouse in Chester in August.
