Pan panto a record-breaker

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

Peter Pan has bro­ken au­di­ence records to be­come the most pop­u­lar pan­tomime ever at the Mar­lowe The­atre.

The show has so far sold 95,875 tick­ets mak­ing it the big­gest in the south east and an ac­co­lade from the Bri­tish The­atre Guide as “one of the best in the coun­try”.

The pre­vi­ous record was for Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs in 2015/16 which was seen by 95,685 peo­ple.

But the to­tal tick­ets sales for Peter Pan is ex­pected to rise even fur­ther as there are still some seats avail­able in the new year un­til the show ends on Jan­uary 14.

Pan­tomime pro­ducer Paul Hendy said: “For many years the Mar­lowe has had a rep­u­ta­tion for stag­ing one of the best pan­tomimes in the coun­try and we’re ab­so­lutely thrilled that not only is Peter Pan get­ting rave re­views but it’s also been the big­gest-ever sell­ing pan­tomime in Can­ter­bury – and the south east.”

Act­ing the­atre di­rec­tor Paula Gille­spie said the record-break­ing fig­ure was an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment.

She said: “What makes it even more amaz­ing is know­ing ev­ery one of our cus­tomers who have seen it so far have en­joyed a fab­u­lous and highly-en­ter­tain­ing show and left the build­ing abso- lutely buzzing.

“Thanks also to the top-rate cast, pro­duc­ers Evo­lu­tion Pro­duc­tions and ev­ery­one at the Mar­lowe who are work­ing so in­cred­i­bly hard.”
