Theatre makers from across Somerset have come together to create the perfect solution for panto in a pandemic. Come along and enjoy the county’s own virtual panto from the comfort of your own home. Each scene of ‘In Search of Cinderella’ has been filmed at a well-known theatre or arts centre to create this online performance.
Everyone is welcome to watch for free – have a chuckle and a singalong on us! But if you can, the producers are asking for donations (whatever you feel it’s worth) that will go directly to help participating venues recover from the coronavirus crisis and help keep theatre live in Somerset.
The participating venues are:
The Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre
Regal Theatre Minehead
Bridgwater Arts Centre
The David Hall, South Petherton
and the performance will end with the Prince and Cinders’ wedding at Glastonbury Abbey
Children at Butleigh C of E Primary School have recorded their 'It's behind you' moments which will be included in the performance.
The project is funded by Arts Council England, Somerset West and Taunton Council, the BARN initiative (via Take Art) and by the people of Somerset and further afield, through a fundraiser.
The play is written and produced by Richard Crowe in association with Somerset Film.
