Panto is back at New Mills Art Theatre

Panto is back at New Mills Art Theatre

Oh no it isn’t, Oh Yes It Is! – The Friends of New Mills Art Theatre are so pleased to be able to announce their next pantomime is Cinderella – probably the best panto story of all time.

After the production was sadly postponed last year, they have chosen the classic Cinderella story, script by Alan P Frayn, that is packed with all the wonderful panto characters, jokes and slapstick business, putting pantomime back where it belongs – in its home, on the Art Theatre stage in January and February 2022.

The success of Hansel and Gretel panto in 2020 brought a host of ACT (Association of Community Theatre) nominations for the production, and the cast and crew are eagerly awaiting the awards ceremony at the end of July.

If you fancy treading the boards at the beautifully refurbished New Mills Art Theatre, then now’s your chance, as very soon there will be a further press release showing how you can access audition pieces and relevant information.

In the meantime, if you would like any more information about the production, please contact us on Tel: 07983 344 862 or Email:

Auditions will be held later in September 2021. Performance dates are 28-30 January and 4-5 February 2022.
