The Pink Panther Strikes Again
Win 2 free tickets ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 12/02/2019 @ 8:00AM
We're just in the middle of casting The Pink Panther ready for our 2019 season. We have the main roles cast and will give you an update on it when the rest of the cast is in place ...
You can win 2 free tickets to The Pink Panther Strikes Again!
Many of you may have seen the Pink Panther series of films, but this is the first time you'll have seen one on stage. The bumbling French police inspector Clouseau, his increasingly lunatic former Chief Inspector Dreyfus, and not forgetting the unpredictable manservant Cato, they're all here.
"A variety of other characters, played by 15 actors, keep this fast-paced comedy rolling along at a breakneck speed."
Tickets for this show will be on sale soon, but here's a chance for you to win two tickets to the opening night on the 15th August 2019, at the Arches Open Air Theatre in Clifton Reynes, just outside Olney.
We are offering two tickets for you, plus a complimentary bottle of Prosecco if you can name the original actor who portrayed Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus.
Just email me directly with his name and you will be put into a hat and it will be pulled out next month with the winner being announced on my blog, and directly to the winner of course.
Happy researching (if you need to), but he was extremely well known.
Until next time ...
More about David Pibworth ...
David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
