TV presenter and 80s legend Keith Chegwin promises ‘a laugh-a-minute ride’ when he comes to Northwich for an Easter pantomime.
If you can’t wait until next Christmas for your next dose of slapstick fun and music comedy, Beauty and the Beast is coming to Northwich Memorial Court in April, with a varied cast line up for audiences to look forward t.
‘Cheggers’, who will play the role of the Village Idiot, will be joined by Anne Hegerty from ITV game show The Chase and fictional fox Basil Brush in the all-singing and dancing family favourite which surrounds a girl called Beauty, who lives a provincial life with her father until a terrifying Beast takes her captive.
Phil Harding, Entertainments Manager at Brio Leisure, said it was ‘wonderful’ to see Cheggers back on the Northwich stage.
“Keith actually appeared at the old Memorial Hall in the 80s when he was very well known for his Cheggers Plays Pop series, so it will be great to catch up. In fact, some of the audience who may have been youngsters then, may well be bringing their own children this time around,” he said.
We’ve carried out research into the type of show families want us to stage at the Memorial Court and pantos scored very highly. We’ve actually got a similar type of show Hubbards Cubbards, starring Northwich panto favourites Steve Moorewood and Ryan Greaves, playing on Thursday February 18 at 11am and 2pm, so there’s lots of panto fans in Mid Cheshire.”
The production starts at 6pm on April 7 and 2pm and 6pm on April 8. You can buy tickets online at www.brioleisure.org or by calling the box office on 01606 261100
