Jeeves & Wooster


A play from the works of P. G. Wodehouse
Adapted by The Goodale Brothers
Directed by Penelope J. H. Christopher

Take your seats with caution! Aristocratic buffoon, Bertram Wooster, has hired the theatre for the night to present his one-man show detailing a recent and rather spectacular series of misadventures, including the theft of a silver cow creamer and a narrow escape from matrimony.

Bertie soon runs into trouble. Will the show be a disaster? Will the scenery stay upright? Or will his trusty manservant Jeeves step in and save the day?

In a joyous reimagining of the classic P. G. Wodehouse characters, three actors hurl themselves from role to role as they tell the story of Bertie’s farcical adventures.

Show Dates:
Thursday 25th Nov – 7.30pm
Friday 26th Nov – 7.30pm

Jamie House has been a regular on the Atheneum stage for eight years now after taking to the boards for the first time as Manuel in Fawlty Towers in 2013. Since then, he has appeared in many different shows from Shakespeare to pantomime, from musicals to TV comedies. His most recent roles include Frederick Fleet in Titanic the Musical at the Memorial Theatre in Frome, Pike in Dad’s Army in 2018 and Prince Ludwig in Blackadder II in 2019.

Being a huge fan of classic British comedy, he is thrilled to have been asked to take on the role of Jeeves (and others) in Jeeves and Wooster!

Mark Whitwood moved to Westbury from Cornwall nearly six years ago and has continued to enjoy his participation in theatrical productions, something that has been in his blood continuously from his schooldays. Since living locally, he has performed with Apollo productions and was thrilled to be a part of Oddity Theatre’s production of Sister Act, playing Monsignor O’Hara. He has been fortunate in playing some comedy parts with ALPs alongside the more sombre role of Tom Oakley in Goodnight, Mister Tom. Mark was excited finally to return to the stage after lockdown, playing Mr Bumble in Masqueraders’ production of Oliver! and now participating in this mad cap retelling of Bertie Wooster’s capers, assisted by Jeeves and Seppings.

This is Andrew Chapman’s sixth show with ALPs. After playing one of his major comedic inspirations in Blackadder II two years ago, now he is now back for another, Bertram Wilberforce Wooster. He also played Bernard in Yes, Prime Minister and Captain Lombard in And Then There Were None. The past couple of years may have been tricky, but Jeeves will sort it out, he is good at that sort of thing.

DON’T DELAY – BOOK TODAY!

More info:
This panto may feel a little different to previous years with the new measures we’ve put in place to keep our audiences, creative team, and performers safe. However, we are confident that the panto spirit, the spectacle, and side-splitting comedy that you have come to expect from an Oddity Panto will feel just as magical as ever. It is a full-length production but has been carefully trimmed to no more than 90-minutes with all the best bits included! A shorter interval to reduce social interaction and a smaller cast than usual, which has meant we could double cast each part to help reduce any risk. (A red cast and a blue cast.)


Please also be aware that Pyrotechnics, Strobe, UV, and Smoke effects may be used in this production.

Having scared off his last carer, Anthony, (Anthony Hopkins) an ailing, octogenarian gradually succumbing to dementia, feels abandoned when Anne, (Olivia Coleman) his daughter, tells him she’s moving to Paris. Confused and upset, against the backdrop of a warped perspective and his rapid, heart-rending mental decline, Anthony is starting to lose his grip on reality, struggling to navigate present and past. Now, as faded memories and glimpses of lucidity trigger sudden mood swings, Anthony’s surroundings, and even time itself become distorted.
