Diary of a Theatre Manager – Episode 18

BY HARRISON FULLER

Our 2018 panto goes on sale!

Panto is back at The Broadway! Oh yes it is! It’s like it has never gone away. This week tickets for Cinderella went on sale. We have a special early booking offer – all tickets just £12.00. This offer is available for al limited time (until 31st March), so if you want to ensure you make it to the ball this Christmas, don’t delay and book today!

The panto will be produced by KD Theatre Productions and Scott Ritchie Productions, the team that brought us Aladdin last year, so we can be sure of a good fun, quality family show. KD are also bringing us The Wizard of Oz in April!

What else has been happening at ‘Broadway Towers’? This Sunday we have the grand opening of Sundays. The restaurant has made the move into The Broadway Suite and will be serving up its famous food on Sundays and Wednesdays. They will also be providing the catering for events and parties here at our venue throughout the year (those of you who came along to the Funhouse Comedy have already tasted it!)

Next week we have a world premier here at the theatre. Local group, Revellers, are staging their new work Sisters? in The Broadway Suite. And, if seeing a theatrical first wasn’t enough, the ticket also includes a fish and chip supper!

21st March is World Poetry Day. Here at The Broadway, we will be playing host to our first poetry slam. It will be held in Walter’s Bar & Eatery and will be a great chance for poets to come together to showcase their work and compete against each other. More details on that will be released shortly.

Yesterday (Thursday) I was back in London (surely not!) to see a musical. It is a fun and exciting piece and I hope that we will be able to see it on the stage here before not too long. Before we get to that stage there will be a few meetings to be had, and cups of tea to be drunk!

Next week I have a planning meeting for a very exciting project that we are hoping will be taking place here at The Broadway. The project will run through the year and culminate in a few events … but that is all that can be divulged at this stage. Maybe more next week.

Until next time…
