2024 update

19th March 2024

Since this is our first post since our 2023 pantomime season ended, you would be forgiven for thinking that we have been like Sleeping Beauty and been in hibernation since January, but that couldn’t been further from the truth…..

But before we give you any update on what we have in store for you this year, we must say a huge thank you to everyone who supported us and came to see us last year at either our five star reviewed Cinderella at the wonderful Barnsley Civic, or our  smash hit pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk at the Viaduct theatre and the Marsden Mechanics hall

It was so lovely to see our established venues grow again in audience numbers, as word  still continues to get around about what people can expect from our pantomimes. We had such fun meeting everyone who told us that we have become such a large part of their Christmas tradition as they met our casts on stage after the show to have their picture taken with them. So nice to see so many now familiar friendly faces.

It was equally amazing to see such great audiences come along to the Civic to see the first professional pantomime there for over 25 years. The reactions were amazing and so lovely to be welcomed by all the fantastic people that work at the Civic and made to feel one of the family straight away. We are really excited for the future at the beautiful Civic and great to see how they really embraced the whole pantomime experience by the fantastic worked they had carried out on decorating the entire foyer and creating such an exciting space even before the pantomime had begun. 

So the question is now, how to we continue to build on such a great season? Well,  we have been so busy at Panto Ever After HQ and can at last share some of our exciting news with you.  As you may already know, we are taking our brilliant pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk to the Civic this Christmas to be the Giant pantomime for the lovely people of Barnsley. Dates for this is show is from Sat 7th Dec – Friday 27th Dec. Tickets are already selling fast for this show and can be purchased via Events for 07/12/2024 (ticketsolve.com) We really can’t wait to share this huge adventure with everyone in December. 

Our other Christmas pantomime offering is also a Giant of a show which may just involve some Ruby slippers and one very green witch…..We can’t say too much about this just yet, but we are sure you might have already guessed the title….. We are already busy writing the new script to bring to life this classic story and give it our unique Panto Ever After touch to create a truly magical brand new adaptation that we know you will love. This show will run from Friday 20th Dec – Sunday 29th Dec. 

Our other very exciting news to share with you is that this year, as well as our Christmas pantomimes, we will be producing a brand new adaptation of another classic story, Alice in Wonderland. This energetic, fast paced show will be at two theatres in the first week in August at two brand new venues; Tickles music hall,  Bradford and also the Smile bar, Huddersfield.  It is going to have all the surprises you would expect a Panto Ever After show to include and can’t wait to bringing this show to life. We can also share with you that both venues have agreed with us that we will offer this limited run for very low ticket prices, so we can make it as affordable as possible to entertain children through the summer holidays. More details to follow regarding this show and how you can purchase tickets. 

So as you can see, we have not been sleeping at all, in fact we are already needing a good lay down…lol. But we really are looking forward to sharing all our new shows that we will continue to work on behind the scenes for you to enjoy.

We will keep you posted on more details on all of these exciting projects but please remember that the best way to ensure you never miss any of our latest news is to sign up to our newsletter, which you can click on the link on our website.
