The Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham is celebrating the end of another record-breaking pantomime season and raising over £10,000 for a local charity supporting young people with disabilities.
Cinderella was seen by almost 50,000 people over the run and earned rave reviews, including one from Punchline
The Everyman's chief executive, Mark Goucher said: "This has been a fantastic season. We have sold more tickets than ever before and enjoyed 5* reviews. I want to thank our customers who have also given so generously to this brilliant local charity. We will work even harder to deliver you an even better show next time."
Throughout the pantomime season theatre Ambassadors, volunteers, staff and the cast of the show helped to raise funds for Scrubditch Care Farm near Cirencester - a small local charity supporting young people and adults with learning disabilities in Gloucestershire.
They provide therapeutic farm-based training and aim to improve independence, physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Charity founder Emma Costley-White said: "I am delighted and amazed to receive £10,000 for Scrubditch Care Farm! We have been overwhelmed by all associated with the Everyman Theatre and panto goers - thank you, one and all.
"Tweedy 'sold' the Care Farm to audiences day and night so I'd like to say a special thank you to him. With this fantastic donation we can now kit out our cooking studio - with ovens, hobs, sinks and adjustable work stations for the students."
Tickets are already selling fast for the Everyman's next pantomime. Jack and The Beanstalk promises to be a giant of a show so get your seats while you can.
