In response to the Government’s statement in March 2020 advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including by not attending theatres, Calderdale Council took the precaution of closing the Victoria Theatre. We are still waiting for further advice from Central Government about when and how we will be able to safely re-open. The team continue to work behind the scenes to make sure the theatre will reopen quickly for you once we are able to do so.
The Little Mermaid has been re-scheduled to Friday 8 October 2021 (from Thursday 1 October 2020)
We're pleased to confirm that your existing tickets will be valid at the rescheduled date and we hope you can join us. If you have chosen to collect your tickets from the Box Office at the time of booking, your tickets will still be available for collection up to the date of the rescheduled show.
If you are unable to attend, tickets must be returned to the Box Office by 31 July 2020 for a full refund – The Theatre and Box Office are currently closed and we are doing what we can from home to keep our customers informed. Once we return to work we will administer the refunds so please bear with us in this unprecedented situation.
- If you have Victoria Theatre tickets bought from the Box Office and would like a refund - these will need to be returned to the Box Office for a refund (as this event has been postponed and to allow tickets to be resold).
- If you have Print at Home Tickets and would like a refund- Please return the original print at home email which included the link to the ticket pdf (with the subject line - Your print at home tickets are ready - PLEASE PRINT) to the Box Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE: The £1.75 Theatre Support Fee that is automatically added to all tickets is non refundable. This fee is essential to supporting the theatre operations, particularly during these difficult times and it will be used to help provide necessary equipment for the safety of our audiences once we re-open for shows.
Chantry Dance has been inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s story of everyone's favourite mermaid, and given it a wonderful new twist in the tale.
At Princess Aquaria's coming-of-age birthday, she is given permission by the Sea-King to visit the World Above. Swimming to the surface, she is fascinated by the human beings.
A folk band, The Sandcastles, is playing on the beach. As their music reaches Aquaria's ears, she falls in love with the melodies and the dancing. She is also enthralled by the charismatic guitarist Calder (a real prince of music). Sadly she has to return to the Underwater Kingdom.
But Aquaria and Calder's fates are now intertwined.
Following a windsurfing accident, Aquaria rescues Calder, and falls deeply in love with him. Making a grave bargain with the Sea-Witch, she trades her voice for a pair of human legs so she can be with Calder.
But as we all know, nothing is ever that simple. Aquaria has to overcome many struggles to be with her true love, including the jealous rivalry of The Sandcastles' lead singer, being captured by unscrupulous fishermen, and trying to regain her voice from the Sea-Witch.
Join Chantry for this year's must-see show, featuring stunning contemporary choreography, acrobatics, beautiful costumes and an international cast of exceptional dancers, including RAE PIPER & PAUL CHANTRY as Aquaria and Calder (choreographers of David Walliams' Olivier-nominated West End hit show 'Gangsta Granny' and 'Billionaire Boy') and SHANNON PARKER as the Sea-Witch (San Francisco Ballet, Northern Ballet Theatre and Britain's Got Talent).
What our audiences said about Chantry’s 2019 production of ‘ALICE’:
“It was just incredible. Wow!”
“Brilliant and totally captivating”
“The show was fantastic! Beautiful storytelling and incredible choreography!”
