Magna Vitae Productions; about us …
In 2017, the Embassy Theatre embarked on a new venture which marked a historic moment for our venue. Dispensing with tradition as a theatre that was solely a receiving house, the first step was made to deliver an in-house pantomime as Magna Vitae Productions.
Utilising the skills and experience within the Embassy Theatre team, bringing our audiences a heightened experience – we strive to deliver the most opulent and spectacular professional pantomimes ever seen on this stage by a strong, professional creative team and cast with additional opportunities for local talent to shine.
Past productions at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness.
