Masters of the boutique panto, Charles Court Opera, return to the King's Head Theatre for a third year of fab panto fun with the world premiere of King Tut - A Pyramid Panto.

The show will run from Friday 24 November 2017 to Saturday 6 January 2018, with some adult only performances and matinees for young children (check below for relevant dates).

Now a legendary part of North London's Christmas, Charles Court Opera's seasonal pantos are always cheeky, topsy-turvy retellings of myths, legends and fairytales.

Expect both the expected and the unexpected, with fabulous musical numbers that add spark and bite to the slapstick, groan-worthy jokes and off-piste silliness, mixed up in an inventive cocktail of magic, love, baking and cross-dressing.

This year CCO head for the Valley of the Kings and sprinkle their madcap magic across a LUXORiously entertaining, jaw-droppingly hilarious show with a show full of bling-tastic pharoahs, sand dancing, mystery, intrigue and lots of fun, plus some incredible musical arrangements that will keep your toes tapping well into the new year.

Don't be in denial - it's only a river in Egypt (not our joke we hastily add!).

The King Tut press night is on Tuesday 28 November - look out for our review of the show!
