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.

Our in house productions have gone from strength to strength with two more hugely successful pantomimes delivered to audiences with very positive reviews. In addition to this, Magna Vitae Productions have also worked on co-productions with West End choreographers, performers and recently delivered a brand new live show which is returning to our stage as a part of the 2021 summer season.

This year’s pantomime will again bring together a host of eager creatives to ensure that after a forced hiatus, the 2021 pantomime delivers something that was worth the wait. Sleeping Beauty will be performed between 16th and 28th December.
