The Bollington Festival Players produce an annual pantomime as well as plays.
Early January is Panto season – we have a large group of performers of all ages, who make our annual shows great fun for all the family. The panto generally runs for just over a week – opening on Friday night and ending eight days later on Saturday night. Matinée performances are shown on both Saturdays and the Sunday.
Beyond the regular panto, we also run plays – typically one or two a year. These may feature adult casts, juniors, or both.
All of our performances are at The Arts Centre in Bollington, a small town near Macclesfield in Cheshire. The venue is quite small, which we think adds an extra amount of magic to our shows. A bar is usually open for each performance, and soft drinks and sweets can be bought during the interval at pantos.
You can find out more about the venue here: www.bollingtonartscentre.org.uk
If you are interested in taking part in one of our productions or would like to help during the panto backstage, making scenery, costumes, front of house or chaperoning our junior cast we would love to hear from you.
Please get in touch via our facebook page.
Note: You must be 9 years or older at the time of the performances for our junior productions but any age for the adult shows.
