The Wyvern Theatre have announced that the new Regent Circus development will be the main sponsor for this year’s pantomime.
The sponsorship deal between the theatre and Swindon’s newest retail and leisure destination secures an important partnership in the town and will help ensure that audiences and customers are offered the very best quality of festive entertainment and dining.
“We’re delighted to be supporting the Wyvern Theatre with this year’s fantastic pantomime and its star performers!” said Regent Circus Centre Manager Steve Bizley. “It’s important to us and our restaurants to encourage strong arts and events programmes and to make sure our customers have plenty of reasons to visit the town centre with their families all year round. We are really looking forward to working together with the theatre to make this an exciting festive season in Swindon.”
The five acre former Swindon College town centre campus has been completely transformed and now boasts a 50,000 sq ft Morrisons supermarket, a six screen Cineworld cinema, two car parks and a selection of high quality restaurants.
Theatre Director Derek Aldridge said; “I could not be more delighted that Regent Circus are sponsoring Snow White. It makes perfect sense that that Regent Circus – the newest attraction in town – is working with the Wyvern, one of the most established. The thousands of families who visit us every year to spend their Christmas with us will also enjoy visiting Regent Circus and spending more of their leisure time in Swindon town centre.”
This year’s pantomime star is TV-sop legend Adam Woodyatt, best-known for his role as Ian Beale in Eastenders. Adam will play ‘Oddjob’, the Wicked Queen’s henchman and will be joined on stage by Wyvern Theatre pantomime favourite, David Ashley.
Staged by the producers of the Wyvern’s hugely successful productions of Dick Whittington, Jack and the Beanstalk and Aladdin, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be a magical show for all the family. With the support of Regent Circus, it’s set to be the fairest of them all.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will open at the Wyvern Theatre on Sat 5 December 2015 and run until Sun 3 January 2016. Book tickets today for the fairest panto in all the land at swindontheatres.co.uk or by calling the Ticket Office on 01793 524 481.
