Enjoy this, the best loved of all traditional pantomimes, in our intimate theatre.

 

Cinderella is the universally appealing story of a kind-hearted, beautiful girl who is mistreated and and then falls in love with the perfect Prince Charming. Add to this her faithful friend Buttons; a fairy godmother; repulsive, ridiculous ugly sisters; the Broker’s men pursuing her bankrupt but loving father; a lovable pantomime horse; singing and dancing and the festive fun is complete.

This year’s pantomime was written by Ben Crocker who comes from a theatrical family and is the son of actor and pantomime script writer, John Crocker. He saw his first pantomime at the age of three and has been hooked ever since – although he cannot remember all of the show as he spent the frightening bits under his seat. It was Jack and the Beanstalk.

Last year Ben’s panto scripts were performed all over the UK and Ireland – and in Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Hungary, Greece, Belgium and France. The quality and sheer sense of fun know no boundaries!

Terence Rattigan’s classic play The Browning Version is set in a public school and centres around Andrew Crocker-Harris, an ineffectual master at the school who is despised by his unfaithful wife and refused a pension when he retires due to ill-health.

This is a powerful drama bearing all the hallmarks of Rattigan’s play-writing skills.

Thame Players present this heart-warming re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling.

This fully orchestrated musical tells the story of Ugly, an aesthetically challenged duck, who finds himself pushed out by the other members of the duck-yard, leading him into an adventure that will see him discover the true meaning of what it is to be different.

Winner of multiple awards, including the 2000 Olivier Award for Best Musical (beating both The Lion King and Mamma Mia), this heartwarming celebration of being different is sure to delight audiences with its sparkling wit and memorable score.

The other works of British writing duo, Stiles and Drewe, have exploded around the UK over the last few years and include Mary Poppins, Half a Sixpence, Betty Blue Eyes (based on the film A Private Function) and the soon-to-open Wind in the Willows.

Honk! is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face – no matter how horrendously ugly that smile may be.
