DO you get tired of trudging to Oldham every year to take the kids to the panto?
Their panto is good – but haven’t you ever wished we had a top class panto of our own here in Saddleworth?
If, like Dream Factory Theatre, you’ve ever dared dream of such joy, then delight! One of the UK’s best panto companies is coming to Delph this Christmas!
Jack and the Beanstalk at the Millgate Arts Centre promises to be one of the highlight of Saddleworth festivities in 2018.
We managed to get a sneak preview of the cast list and must say it looked very impressive.
You might recognise a couple of faces from daytime TV, or the West End and for all the mums still looking for tickets to book, we can assure you the Prince is very dishy!
The show’s director Ben Richards said: “We’ve been building this panto since February. If you love glitz, glitter and glamorous costumes then you’re in for a treat.
“Everything in the show, from Dame Trott’s outrageous wardrobe to the glittering castle above the clouds, has been handmade just for Saddleworth.
“The elves in our workshops have worked themselves to the bone creating a real spectacle with through-the-roof production values.
“If there’s one thing the people of Saddleworth love more than going to the theatre, it’s glitz and glamour – am I right?!
“And if you love a bargain, you’re in luck: panto-goers can enjoy two hours of fast-paced, magical, family fun for £9 per child £15 for an adult.”
“And as if all that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, don’t forget, we’re promising one VERY BIG GIANT.”
Dream Factory Theatre’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk is on from December 15-31. Some nights have already sold out, but there’s still time to nab some tickets and give your littlies the most magical Christmas Saddleworth has to offer.
Tickets are available online at: www.saddleworthlive.com or by calling the Box Office on 01457 874644.
