Top Comedy Singer-Songwriter And A Magical Pantomime!
Just added to the Arches Theatre summer schedule ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 07/07/2020 @ 8:00AM
We are very excited to announce that we're bringing two great new shows to our outdoor theatre programme. For our first new addition, you must join us on a magic carpet ride for the hilarious performance of Aladdin - the socially distanced panto on 29th and 30th August ...
We're thrilled that Richard Digance is coming to the Arches Theatre!
Four cast members will be taking to our quirky outdoor stage in this magical summer pantomime. I will be playing Abanazar and the Genie, and our old friend Keith Lennox will not only be co-producing and directing the performance, but he will also be playing Widow Twanky.
"Aladdin is Kelly George and the Princess is Charlotte Pask!"
Suitable for children of all ages, there will be a matinee at 1pm and a later performance at 4pm. Tickets will be £7.50 per person or £25 for 4 tickets. As this will be a socially distanced performance, tickets will be limited. Please feel free to bring a picnic and enjoy it with us before the show. Tickets will be on sale soon.
Our second new performance comes from none other than award-winning comedy and music legend, Richard Digance. Richard will be giving an intimate performance of his infamous comedy and folk music at our open-air venue on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st August at 10pm. Tickets will be £15pp and available via our ticket office very soon.
To recap our summer schedule:
