Once Upon a Time

Rehearsals are well underway for Once Upon a Time a panto with a bit of a difference…

The daughter of Cinderella is about to marry the son of Snow White, banishing evil from Pantoland forever or so the ancient prophecy says. Naturally the baddies aren’t taking this lying down! Evelyn, the wickedest of wicked witches, spirits Princess Lottie and her two idiot helpers Nick and Nack away from the palace and drops them on the edge of Pantoland . Of course, the Prince with Jack his companion and Gertie the cook embark on a rescue mission, What lies in store for all of them?

We will be performing this 11th-13th December 2015 at Marches School Oswestry.

Tickets are available from Ticket Source or from Christian’s Jewellers

Tickets for Sleeping Beauty are available to buy online!

In a first for OMTC, we have made tickets for our next show, Sleeping Beauty, available to buy online!  Initially we’ve made half of the seats in the theatre available to buy online, but if demand is high enough we can make the rest of the seats available.

Tickets are available now to buy from here: – tickets are £10/£8 and groups who buy 10 tickets will get an extra one free.

There is a small booking fee if you book through the website which covers the cost of credit/debit card processing, but for the convenience of not having to make a trip into town, we think it’s worth it!

Rehearsals for Sleeping Beauty

Rehearsals are starting on Monday the 2nd of June (7.30-10.00pm in room C6 at The Marches School) for our next production – Sleeping beauty. This will be performed in early December 2014 (I think it’s the weekend of the 5th, 6th and 7th of December but I don’t have my notes handy). If you’re interested in taking part – whether young, old, a singer, an actor, if you’ve never been on stage, if you’ve been on stage since you were 4! We welcome anyone (but especially younger men!) – check the event on our Facebook page for details!

If you don’t fancy being on stage but can spare some time to help out with more practical things, we always need help before the show with designing, making, painting, setting up, tearing down, and moving things around. If you or anyone you know can do any of that before or during the show, let us know here or email!

If you’re good with people, please consider helping our front of house team on the performance nights. Helping customers, working on the bar, selling tickets, programs, raffle tickets & generally being the face of the company. If you’re interested, let us know here or email
