THE MAGIC OF PANTO IS ALIVE - SAFE AND SOCIALLY DISTANCED!

Come and enjoy a brilliant live pantomime suitable for the whole family at Brierley Hill Civic this Christmas.

Face coverings must be worn by adults (unless medically exempt), and can only be removed to drink or to eat. You will be allowed to drink during the show.

Drinks will be served via service - we are working with the Civic and hope to be using an app to allow you to order online on your phone from the safety of your seats. We'll bring it all to you!

Maximum of 6 tickets per order. Our social distancing seating plan will ensure there is always a gap of two seats between you and the next group on your row to ensure safety.

A PLEA FROM US: Please do not book the middle two seats on the outer rows of six, as it will mean we can only get two people on each of those rows instead of four. The same applies to the middle row of 10, please try not to book and block out two seats either side as this will also severely restrict our capacity. If necessary, to make the event work economically, we will move your tickets to the two seats next to them and inform you by email. Thanks in advance! 

TOM BINNS: BUTTONS - THE ONE MAN FAMILY PANTOMIME

Despite the difficulties facing theatre this year, one man is single-handedly trying to keep the magic of panto alive.

Sheffield comedian Tom Binns - aka Hospital DJ Ivan Brackenbury - earlier in the year converted his van into the world's first pop up mobile comedy club.

Tom has now written and produced "Buttons - the one-man pantomime" (He will also play Buttons)

Ten minutes into what should have been Cinderella, Buttons realises he’s on his own as the rest of the cast have been furloughed. (He missed the memo because he hadn't bothered to go to the rehearsals)

The star-studded cast from the cancelled panto (kids will know them from CBBC) make a surprise appearance on video call but Buttons is left to carry the show.

Turns out Buttons has got a bit complacent of late and has lost the magic of Panto but with the help of his Fairy God Mentor, played by Bernie Clifton, he rediscovers the magic just in time for a happy ending.

In a case of life imitating art, Bernie Clifton has been mentoring Tom in real life and has even allowed him to do the panto routines he was hoping to do himself this Christmas.

“This is a dream come true for me” says Binns “or it would be if only my dreams were this amazing, weird and specific.”

* Show lasts for 60 minutes
* Suitable for all ages

Keeping The Dream Alive is a play written by Rose Cook Monk honouring the iconic Duncan Edwards and the events of the Munich air crash.

This incredible play tells the story of the world’s greatest footballer Duncan Edwards, who tragically died on the 21st February 1958 from injuries sustained in the infamous Munich aircraft disaster which killed eight of the magnificent Busby Babes, the wonderfully talented young Manchester United players, who under the Management of the iconic Matt Busby were the very best of young footballing talent.

This play is sympathetically and carefully penned with the full backing of Duncan's loving family. Revealing details about the disaster that are largely unknown, it tells the personal stories of those closest to Duncan in the wake of the tragedy.

This play features the very best of local talent and the one and only academy award winner Bernard Hill, who is a life long Manchester United fan.

Whether you're a history enthusiast, a football fanatic or just appreciate high quality theatre productions, this is an event you really can't miss.

NOT LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER 

A parody of LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER by DH LAWRENCE

Think The Naked Gun and Airplane! mixed with a steamy costume drama. A laughter-filled parody of the D.H. Lawrence novel.

Lady Chatterley welcomes home her husband, Clifford, from a war that has left the world in tatters. With Clifford’s legs also in tatters, he arrives at Wragby Manor confined to a wheelchair and clutching his secret.

Despite her husband’s impotence, a subject that all struggle to avoid; Constance entertains the idea that one day they could have a child.However, as the couple grow apart Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper: Mellors.

Expect long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo in this Mel Brooks style parody.

“Subversive, inventive and as witty as it is rude.” - East Anglian Daily Times

“A perfectly crafted production of comic genius.” - Mind The Blog

Tickets: £19 in advance or £21 on the door.
