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. Hopkins deservedly won the best actor award at this year’s Oscars.

Talking Heads II

26th Feb

2pm & 7.30pm

Talking Heads

The Athenaeum Masqueraders bring back their acclaimed production of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads II!

From the 2018 & 2019 NODA SW Best Musical nominated group, who brought shows like Oliver, 9 to 5 The Musical, The Addams Family and The Full Monty and Legally Blonde, The Athenaeum Masqueraders bring to you three of Alan Bennett’s hit dramatic monologues in Talking Heads II in February 2022.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

In January 2017, The Athenaeum Masqueraders staged three of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads featuring hit dramatic monologues from the 1980s BBC production. The group return to stage 2022, reviving three more monologues including:

A Cream Cracker Under the Settee: Doris, a widow, lives alone. Refusing to relinquish her independence, she surreptitiously cleans when her home help, Zulema, is absent. When we meet her, she has just fallen over whilst attempting to dust a picture frame high on the wall. The day goes on; unable to get help, Doris reminisces about her quiet, uneventful life with its joys and sadnesses.

Her Big Chance: Meet Lesley, an actress. She has just completed a video (‘targeted chiefly on West Germany’) in which she plays Travis, a career girl who enjoys life, spends a remarkable amount of time topless and shoots a man with a harpoon gun. She tells all, blind to the sinister undertones of her story as well as to her own self-delusions and gullibility.

Soldiering On: Muriel’s husband Ralph has just died, leaving her rather well off – until, that is, her son Giles gets his hands on the money and Muriel comes out the loser.

TICKETS: £12

SHOW DATES:

Saturday Matinee 26th February – 2.00pm start

Saturday Evening – 26th February – 7.30pm Start.

Meet Tommy Atkins

17th Jun

7.30pm

Meet Tommy Atkins

Presented by Beyond Eternity Promotions Ltd
‘Meet Tommy Atkins’ takes the audience not just through Tommy’s war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches – fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship. Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.
From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there.
This is his story.

Starts 7.30 pm

  • Tickets £12
  • Seniors & Students £10
