Chelmsford Civic Theatre is celebrating the record-breaking success of ‘Cinderella’, which has become the best attended panto the theatre has ever staged, with 90% of the seats being sold and almost 28,800 people watching the production.
Ian Knowles, Artistic Director (Theatre Manager) at The Civic, is delighted with sales. He says: “The figures are sensational and reflect how much time, dedication and love everyone at the Civic puts into the panto to make sure that all the audience go home enthralled by the show. Each year we out do ourselves with our panto – it just keeps getting better and better. Our next panto will be Peter Pan and I am amazed that already we have sold 21% of seats and that some shows have sold-out even before Cinderella had ended”.
