2022 Panto tickets on sale after successful run of Beauty and the Beast in Chelmsford Civic theatre

theatreChelmsford City Theatres have put tickets for their next panto on sale, following an acclaimed and unbroken run of Beauty and the Beast at Chelmsford's Civic Theatre 2021-22, in association with One From The Heart.

Jack and the Beanstalk is the classic story planned for the theatre's winter 2022 programme.

Tickets for the annual pantomime usually go on sale at the start of the year, but disruption caused by the Covid pandemic meant seats for the 2021 panto were released months later than usual. Despite this setback, attendance was almost 80%, there were no replacements to the cast and, apart from one or two changes to school performances, its run took place exactly as planned.

Cllr Marie Goldman, Chelmsford City Council's Deputy Leader is proud of what the team has achieved.

"Putting live theatre on is so hard at the moment. So it was an incredible feat to pull off a full run of the Civic's most complex production, in another year affected by Covid-19. Our annual family panto brings joy to the city and it's wonderful to see how well supported and appreciated it was by our residents, even at such a difficult time."

The Chelmsford panto is well known for casting a quality ensemble rather than relying on big-name stars and Beauty and the Beast received excellent reviews for its "super-talented cast with a collective ton of theatre experience".

Book now for Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk runs between Wednesday 30 November 2022 and Sunday 8 January 2023. If you can't wait to cheer on Jack as he tries to outwit a ferocious giant, go to the Chelmsford City Theatres website to book your seats.

There are plenty of other family shows at Chelmsford Theatres in the meantime, including The Wind in the Willows, Milkshake! Live, Fireman Sam Saves the Circus, and Dinosaur World Live.
