Family Panto fun!

Cinderella - The Broadway Panto 2012

 

We are very excited to be producing our very first Pantomime for The Broadway Barking! Directed by Carole Pluckrose and written by Clifford Oliver with an original script and score, this year's magically-musical production of Cinderella promises to be a breathtaking, colourful and fun-packed new take on the classic fairy-tale!


STOP PRESS! A limited number of DVDs of a professionally-recorded performance of Cinderella are available for purchase direct from Arc for £15 each plus £2 p&p. To order, please contact Nita Bocking.


The Broadway in partnership with Arc are delighted to present Cinderella this winter - continuing a well-established annual festive treat for people of all ages and backgrounds from Barking & Dagenham and beyond. This year will be no exception, with Cinderella arguably being the most popular panto story of them all. Most of us might know how the tale ends, but the magic of the story is in the telling, and Cinderella at The Broadway promises to be every bit as magical as you would hope!

Running throughout December with the final curtain falling on 2 January 2013, performances will take place at 2pm and 6pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, with Sunday shows at 4pm providing great entertainment for the whole family to enjoy together. For a full list of performances and how to book, visit The Broadway Barking, or contact The Broadway Box Office on 020 8507 5607 for the latest availability!

 

The Making of a Panto!

Along with all the fun and frolics, Panto is also a genuinely serious business (oh yes it is!) that demands a huge amount of teamwork and commitment from a large and dedicated creative/production team. To share some of that extraordinary process, we're giving you a rare glimpse into Arc's journey to create a show that no Christmas would be complete without... by way of a regular Blog from the Creative Team, led by Director and Producer, Carole Pluckrose!
