The Queen of Hearts

Due to Covid-19 cases within the company we regret to inform you all all remaining performances of The Queen of Hearts have been cancelled. This is inclusive of performances Dec 30th 2021 – Jan 2nd 2022. 

If you had a ticket to a cancelled performance you will be contacted by our box office by email with more information.

This year we are back, BIGGER and MORE MAGNIFICENT than ever!

We are delighted to announce the triumphant return of the Greenwich Theatre pantomime. The Queen of Hearts will see the fantastic return of writer, director and our extraordinary Dame Andrew Pollard, our favourite villain Anthony Spargo, musical director (Uncle) Steve Markwick and brilliant designer Cleo Pettitt.

Meet the Knave of Hearts, a bit of a joker who’s in love with the Princess of Diamonds. The only problem is, she’s already got a boyfriend – the Prince of Spades. Maybe the Queen’s secret jam recipe will win her over? But then there’s the King of Clubs who’s also desperate to get his hands on the secret recipe…

Following our Offie award-winning pantomime Sleeping Beauty, The Queen Of Hearts is guaranteed to crack even the strongest of poker faces…

What the reviews say:

“…The Queen of Hearts is a feel-good return to festive theatre that ticks every box…”

Broadway Baby  ★★★★★

“…As the Queen of Hearts herself says, “love makes the world a better place,” and indeed Greenwich’s annual festive fare, fully crafted with love, sets the gold standard for pantomime…”

British Theatre Guide

“…it is the Dame and the Baddie that we come to see and with Mr Pollard giving us more costume changes than a Madonna concert, and Mr Spargo once again being the Bestest Baddie in town, the Queen of Hearts is a winner…”
