Rainbow’s Acclaimed Christmas Shows & Easter Story
INTRODUCTION: What makes a Rainbow Christmas show so memorable that children remember it years later? Firstly at Rainbow we ‘believe’ in the story. These pantomimes are our culture’s myths – and they draw the audience of all ages into their magic. We don’t have microphones to dominate the audience – just great actors performing great stories. The second unique feature of a Rainbow Christmas show is the way that the children are incorporated into the action. Our volunteers play a vital part in the performance – and for the children who aren’t picked, they empathise and are empowered with their friends who are acting. Lovely costumes, memorable songs, slap stick and drama all fuse together in a show that is suitable for all ages. Teachers, juniors and infants all ‘believe in the make-believe’. Comprehensive notes and music files accompany each production, which ends a school’s term on a very special Rainbow note. Also Easter Story, that Rainbow has played to over 250,000 enraptured children, returns to inspire and excite.
RAINBOW would like to wish all the children and teachers who have experienced this year’s productions, a Very Happy Christmas. This year’s productions may be drawing to a close, but 2018 Christmas is now being booked. Rainbow South will be performing SLEEPING BEAUTY, Rainbow London presenting CINDERELLA, and Rainbow South West: Snow White. If you would like to prebook and get ahead of the curb, just get in touch!! Also Easter Story………
Rainbow South – Christmas Show 2018

Drama, Comedy,Songs and magic make this an adventure for children of all ages.
“Lovely show and age appropriate – they all got something out of it”. Chudleigh Knighton
Rainbow London – Christmas Show 2018
The greatest of all pantomimes – the original rags to riches story with the brave but put-upon Cinderella One of the best and most imaginative of all the pantomime stories: the cheeky washerwoman’s son who dares to face the wicked Abanazar, discovers the lamp and the genii, woos and wins the Emperor’s daughter – only to lose her and journey to the ends of the earth to get her back. Children help with the washing, serve the Emperor as his fierce guards, become the jewels in the magic cave and have many other roles. Colourful costumes, magic effects, great slapstick and exciting theatre – the perfect end of term treat.
“Children loved it – all fully engrossed.” THE LAURELS
“Very good, we all value the experience of ‘theatre’ at school. Great team as always – very friendly. Thank you for a great show, we love having you.” CHINGFORD PS
Rainbow South West – Christmas Show 2018
Enjoy Snow White and her amazing and exciting adventures in this most popular Rainbow ‘pantomime’. Snow White’s bravery in the face of danger, makes her a great role model. Children join the professional actors playing many of the parts in this inspiring story, including the animals in the forest as well as six of the seven dwarfs! Memorable songs, comedy, action and a one of the best baddie all make Snow White a must-see Christmas entertainment for the whole school.
