Beverley Musical Theatre say they are delighted with the success of their annual Christmas pantomime which this year saw them perform Dick Whittington.
Facing more competition from new venues that have opened in the town Beverley Musical Theatre had feared they would see a decline in ticket sales.
However their fears proved to be wrong as their take on Dick Whittington was a total sell out with over 1,400 people buying tickets to come and see their show.
“This was our 27th pantomime and this years has been a complete sell out. Ahead of the live performances we also entertained pupils from St Nicholas Primary School who were invited to our dress rehearsal.”
“There was not a spare seat in the house for our shows that took place from Wednesday through to Sunday meaning we performed to a full Memorial Hall on each of the six shows.”
A production for all the family Dick Whittington was full of jokes and one liners that had both adults and children in fits of laughter. Ian Thompson put in a hilarious performance as ‘Dame Dolly Dumpling’ as did all the other members of the cast.
As with all pantomimes the audience played a key role. All the children who went to the show were given the opportunity to go on stage and sing with the actors.
Beverley Musical Theatre who are all volunteers and work on a number of shows throughout the year can now bring the curtain down on 2016 on a real high. Alison concluded;
“On behalf of everyone at Beverley Musical Theatre I would like to thank everyone who came to our show and also like to thank Beverley Music and Dance for their continued support.”
“This year was by far the best traditional pantomime at the Beverley Memorial Hall, we are very pleased that the show was such a huge success. Christmas has officially started.”
