The Coliseum’s annual festive production is a highlight in the festive calendars for over 35000 people across Oldham and Greater Manchester. The much-loved production mixes well-known traditions with brand new songs, pop culture references and themes to produce a pantomime that is simultaneously warmingly familiar and excitingly different year on year.


This year’s pantomime, Aladdin, is long-awaited, having been rescheduled from 2020 due to the pandemic.


The pantomime usually features a community chorus of over 20 young people who perform alongside professional actors, however due to safety reasons this year the theatre is instead casting four dancers aged 18+, to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission amongst the company. Whilst many Covid-19 restrictions are no longer a legal obligation, at the Coliseum all staff and artists continue to observe social distancing and wear masks to help minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission and keep everyone who enters the theatre as safe as possible.
