Panto set for theatre re­turn

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A PANTOMIME will re­turn to Clon­ter Opera Theatre af­ter a suc­cess­ful de­but last year.

Last De­cem­ber Wil­liam Whel­ton from Mac­cles­field pro­duced the first fam­ily pantomime at Clon­ter Opera Theatre and won rave re­views.

Now Wil­liam and the theatre are team­ing up again to bring an even big­ger and bet­ter show, Jack and the Beanstalk, with a cast in­clud­ing West End per­form­ers, pro­fes­sional ac­tors and a young en­sem­ble of lo­cal chil­dren.

The voice of the Gi­ant will be bar­ris­ter, author and ac­tor John Brom­ley Daven­port.

It will be spon­sored by fur­ni­ture store Arighi Bianchi and raise money for East Cheshire Hospice.

Wil­liam Whel­ton said: “We took a risk last year be­cause Clon­ter Opera Theatre had never housed a panto be­fore and it was the my first ma­jor pro­duc­tion.

“But I’m happy to say it paid off. The only chal­lenge this year is we have set the bar so high we need to outdo our­selves, but I’m ready to give it a go.”

Jack and the Beanstalk is from De­cem­ber 21 to 31 at the theatre at Swet­ten­ham Heath, Con­gle­ton.
