Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre has beaten its own ticket sales records, with this season’s pantomime, Aladdin, selling a staggering 46,000 tickets – up 6,000 on last year’s total.
The panto, the first written and directed by Blue Peter legend and actor, Peter Duncan, starred Tweedy amongst its impressive ensemble cast and received rave reviews from SoGlos and other regional titles.
The Everyman Theatre’s chief executive, Mark Goucher, said: ‘We are delighted by the success of Aladdin, as the revenue is vital for the theatre’s on-going work.
‘The show was a critical success and with much more of a West End musical feel to it. We had more modern pop songs in the show whilst maintaining all the traditional elements that families look forward to and we cannot underestimate the huge appeal Tweedy has in the county.’
What’s more, the theatre also staged two well-supported ‘relaxed’ performances for children and adults with an autism spectrum condition and learning disabilities; and a number of schools were also subsidised by the theatre and a number of local Rotary clubs to attend performances.
Next season’s pantomime Cinderella at The Everyman Theatre is on sale now and opens on Friday 29 November 2019.
