I hope you’re all well. We’re heading into the next production now, so what better time to provide an update.
We opened the show on Tuesday 8th November, hosting a Charity performance for “Christie Bears” a local charity set up to raise funds for the Christie Hospital. This is a cause that is dear in the hearts of many of us at the Theatre and it was a delight to host them.
The show opens to the public on the 10th November and looks fabulous. All of the hard work and effort both on and off-stage over the last 8 weeks has really paid off and this is set to be another outstanding production. Tickets are still available.
What a brilliant season opener for the year! Cheryl and Paul were outstanding with their performances and Rachel expertly put together an amazing evening of entertainment.

Beauty and the Beast
We have held auditions, see Auditions for the pantomime, however we are still short of a few people, namely:
- Prince/Beast – Played by the same actor 18-30
- Gustav(Gaston) – 18-30 (ish) imposing and comical male character
- Flora – Fairy Godmother role
The show will open on 19th January 2023 and tickets are on sale now.
We still have 2 slots to fill for the remainder of the 2022/23 season, so if you have a play in mind, we’d love to hear from you. The likely dates will be in March and June/July, matching our usual season schedule and hopefully we will be able to continue with the extended runs over 2 weeks.
We’re continuing to run external lets, serving two purposes for us. Firstly, it establishes us as a great place to visit in the town and cements our role as a provider of great entertainment within the community. Secondly, it provides us with additional, much needed funds as we rebuild following our temporary shut-down.
Current dates include:
- November 26th – “Winter Woolies Tour” – The Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican – Music/comedy
- November 27th – “End of tour gathering” – Merry Hell – Music
- December 3rd – “The homecoming gig” – Fine Lines – Music (Highly worth watching in my opinion…)
- December 9th – “LoL Christmas Bash” – Lol Cheshire – Comedy
- December 11th – “DOTS” present Jim Berry (Houghton Weavers) – Music
That’s all for now, I hope to see you soon at “curtain up”.
Break a leg!
