Record-breaking panto & new season at the Everyman

New season at Everyman Theatre Cheltenham

Theatre is thriving in Gloucestershire as the Everyman in Cheltenham has announced record figures for the pantomime – Dick Whittington and His Cat – and has a vibrant new season in store.

The annual pantomime, which starred Tweedy the clown, was seen by more than 43,000 people over its six week run – up on the previous total of 42,494. 

The Everyman’s Chief Executive, Mark Goucher said: “This just goes to show that theatre is alive and well in Gloucestershire! We are delighted that our pantomime was such a success and have already put next season’s show – Aladdin – on sale.  The new brochure will be landing on doorsteps this week and we urge people to book soon for shows. The Play That Went Wrong is on this week and sold every single seat.”

The new brochure is packed full of shows to appeal for all ages and the highlight is the Everyman’s own production (with Mark Goucher and David Ian) of the Ronald Harwood comedy, Quartet. Starring Paul Nicholas; Sue Holderness; Wendi Peters and Jeff Rawle it opens here 8 -17th February then embarks on a national tour.

Birdsong, based on the Sebastian Faulkes novel, is a mesmerising story of love and courage and marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.  It’s in Cheltenham 19-24th February.

Also on a WW1 theme, The Winslow Boy is Terence Rattigan’s story based on a local boy, George Archer-Shee, whose family home was in South Woodchester near Stroud.
