Wivenhoe Pantomime 2013

edited January 2013 in Wivenhoe Entertainment
Almost that time of year again. The Wivenhoe Pantomime Group will be performing Monster's Rock from 23rd - 26th January 2013 at the William Loveless. This is an original script written by Sara Rout and Brian Ford. The cast has some familiar faces, as well as plenty of new talent joining the group.

I have very kindly been invited along to the rehearsals between now and showtime to capture some of the content. Some early photos and some audio are below. More detail over on m'blog.

Tickets go on sale on 6th September at the late night shopping market at St Mary's. They will also be on sale at both Post Offices.

    *edit (no idea what was wrong with Sheila's thread).
  • Great coverage Jason!
  • Oh no it is'nt.........
  • My pottery classes end 10th of Dec. If the panto need any help with props or set painting, pm me okay.
  • Thank you so much for your offer of help.

    The props are all made, but I will mention to our set painter your offer and she will pm you if she needs any help.

  • How much are the tickets? Can I book tickets for a group?
  • £6 for adults, on sale from 6th December at the Christmas Market at St Mary's, and then at Premier Stores and the High Street Post Office.
  • Any discounts for the none Fri/Sat performances?


  • Are the seats numbered or can you sit anywhere ? Some of the group are hard of hearing. We have always gone to the Brightlingsea panto but this year cannot get to the shop at 8.30 am to buy the tickets. We would like to go to the Saturday performance. 
  • The seats are numbered, which is always a bonus. At least you haven't got to rush for a seat on the night. There are no reductions this year as we've kept the prices low, rather than increase then discount certain performances.
    Greenback, if you usually go to Brightlingsea, then do please give us a try this year.
  • I'd echo JayRay, Greenback. The Wivvy Panto gives lots of enjoyment for little expenditure, and you'll save all that travelling too!
  • Wow - this looks and sounds great! Can't wait for the performance! :)

  • Could it be described as 'scary' at all? - I'd like to take my little girl but she is of a bit of a nervous disposition.

    Any thoughts?
  • No, it's not scary. The baddie Squire Boris Blackheart is probably the only one who shouts a bit and in true panto style, there will be the usual boos and cheers and "it's behind you!" etc. So although it may be noisy at times, I think it is suitable for all ages. Hope this helps.
  • Thanks, I'll give it a go if there are still matinee tickets left x
  • Not many left, they sold really quickly. The Premier had some this morning, but not near the front I'm afraid. I think they had 3 or 4 in row G and then the back 2 rows. Depending on the age of your daughter, it shouldn't finish later than 9.30pm if you wanted an evening ticket.
  • Brilliant that tickets are selling so well, I have to get my skates on & buy some!
  • Plenty left for performances earlier in the week at the moment

    An update from the full Music Rehearsal that took place this Sunday. There's some tricky numbers in there - all sounding very professional. Great to see Angie Diggens volunteering her time as well to help with the moves.

    Monsters Rock opens at the William Loveless Hall on 23rd January, running through until the 26th. Tickets for the matinee on the 26th are apparently close to selling out. All tickets are on sale at the two Post Offices and Crossways, priced £6.

  • A brief update from Tech Rehearsal day on Sunday.

    It's all coming together - the backdrop at the WLH looks ACE. The lighting show alone is worth the £6 admission.

    A few tickets are still available for Monsters Rock on the opening night of Wednesday, as well as Thursday evening. Both Post Offices and Crossways should have them.

    Plus don't forget that there is an open invite for any over 60's to the dress rehearsal on Tuesday at 7:30pm - FREE.

  • I think all performances have some tickets available, except the matinee.

    It shouldn't be a late night, so bring the kids along. It's a fun show suitable for all ages, with some familiar faces and some old gags!

  • Great dress rehearsal tonight.

    Deffinately worth coming along for a fun evening.

    Oh yes it is!

    And some photos from the dress rehearsal below. Tickets should still be available for all shows, apart from the Saturday afternoon matinee. Post Offices, Crossways, £6.

    Tremendous amount of energy in this production.

  • Going tonight; should be great!
  • Tickets available on the door Wednesday and Thursday. Turn off the telly and come and see some live entertainment.
  • Enjoyed the 'Monster Mash' and 'Skeleton Dance'. My faves (out of many) were the stupid cruelty of Horace (Kevin), the charm of Trigger (Rosie) , and the cuteness of Fang (Daria), who was like a cross between Shaun the sheep and a poodle...    Let's hear what YOU thought?
  • A second endorsement for Monster Mash. I thought it was a real turning point in the show when the set and whole energy is suddenly transformed.

    Not wanting to give too much away, but the bass player is... interesting.
  • Any tickets left for tonight? Only a couple for tomorrow afternoon and evening at Premiere Stores at the Cross. I know should have gotten out early but have had all sorts of disasters this week!
