AFTER more than 50 years and three Village Halls, Tytherington Pantomime is still going strong today.

The first production was Robinson Crusoe in 1953 and was staged in a building known as the “Tin Hut” on Duck Street. In 1954 the pantomime moved to the Church Hall which was on the site now occupied by Tytherington Village Shop. The production that year was Cinderella and many pantomimes followed until the Village Hall moved to the former Village School building. Much work had to be done to provide staging and curtains and scenery and the first pantomime opened at the new venue with Mother Goose in 1996.

Rehearsals are now underway for this year’s pantomime ‘Puss-in Boots’ to be performed at Tytherington Village Hall on March 5, 6, 7 and 8 at 7.30pm, with a matinee on Saturday, March 8 at 2.30 pm.

Tickets prices are Adults £7 and Children £5.50 and are available at the hall on Tuesday and Thursday evenings after 7pm or by contacting the Box Office Telephone 01454 418553
