Guildford Fringe Theatre Company has announced two professional pantomimes for winter 2021.
Godalming’s family pantomime, Cinderella, will play the Borough Hall from 11 – 26 December 2021.
Meanwhile GFTC will celebrate its 10th Adult Panto with Aladdin One Rub Too Many the Adult Panto playing the Back Room of the Star Inn, Guildford, from 25 November – 31 December 2021.
Nick Wyschna, Managing Director and Producer for GFTC, said: “I am completely thrilled to announce the title of our 2021 family pantomime, Cinderella. It really is the fairy godmother of all pantos! This will be our third year producing Godalming’s pantomime and I cannot wait to get back to our wonderful venue, the Borough Hall.
“When you put a show on, there are many components to making it a success and the venue and the staff there are massive ones. David Copping (venue manager) and his team have been an incredible support to us, especially during Beauty and the Beast in 2020.
“I am proud to be making a reputation for putting on a proper traditional pantomime in Godalming and I can assure you that Cinderella will be just that, with laughter, dance, song and plenty of magic.”
James Chalmers, writer of Aladdin One Rub Too Many the Adult Panto, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the team at Guildford Fringe and returning for a fourth outing writing the script for the Adult Panto – it truly is the highlight of my year (oh yes it is!).
“I have been very fortunate to have been connected to Guildford Fringe and the annual tradition of the Adult Panto since 2015. I feel very privileged to be part of a company of pathfinders that produced not only one but two Adult Pantos, both online and live, during the COVID crisis.
“Whilst it may not be a panacea, the incredible reaction to the shows proved that at a time like this the arts are vital for providing levity and light. Expect nothing less for Christmas 2021!”
