THE bad news is that there won’t, after all, be a pantomime at Bath Theatre Royal this year. The good news is that the theatre will have a welcome return for the West End comedy hit, The Play That Goes Wrong.
So while Cinderella will have to wait for her prince until 2021, audiences will be able to laugh their fill at Mischief Theatre’s hilarious show, on stage at Bath from 17th December until 10th January. This coincides with the reopening of the London production, now in its sixth year at the Duchess Theatre.
Theatre Royal Bath director Danny Moar says: “We are thrilled to be able to bring back the fantastic Mischief Theatre and one of the most popular shows of the last ten years, to keep families and theatregoers laughing and smiling at the end of a very difficult year. We very much look forward to the pantomime returning in 2021”.
The Play That Goes Wrong has won multiple awards, including the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. It features the (fictional) Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society who are putting on a 1920s murder mystery. As the title suggests, everything that can go wrong … does!
General booking opens from Monday 5th October.
