Thousands of panto-lovers will enjoy this year’s Rhodes Centre production in Bishop’s Stortford, thanks to the sponsorship of leading local estate agent, Mullucks Wells.
The Rhodes Pantomime is one of the centre’s annual highlights and this year’s production will be the ever-popular “Cinderella”.
Mullucks Wells is supporting the event and is also giving 10 tickets to the local branch of Mencap. Staff and members will be attending the pantomime’s gala performance and will get the chance to meet the actors backstage.
Mike Coppins from Mencap’s Grove Cottage in Bishop’s Stortford, said: “We are delighted with the generous offer of 10 tickets to the gala performance of Cinderella which will give our members a great, and in many cases their first, experience of live local theatre. Audience participation is one thing our members are very good at - so they will happily hiss, boo and laugh along with everyone else!”
William Wells, Director of Mullucks Wells, said: “We’re always proud to support local events and what better way to mark the festive season than by sponsoring the panto here in Bishop’s Stortford? And we’ll be on hand when Cinderella and Prince Charming come to buy their first home!”
Audience members will also have the chance to enter Mullucks Wells’ “Where’s Santa” competition in the theatre foyer. The show opens on 14 December and runs until 5 January.
