25-28 Nov &
2-5 Dec 2021
Director: angela hunter
MAD takes great pleasure in announcing this year's pantomime and a return to the stage after two long years…CAMELOT the Panto, by Ben Crocker!
The townsfolk of Camelot, ruled over by King Uther, are awaiting the arrival of Guinevere, who is betrothed to the King's son, Prince Arthur. The "baddies" plot to kidnap Guinevere, imprison her in a castle in the enchanted forest, and prevent her from marrying Prince Arthur. Will the "goodies" prevail in the end? Oh, yes they do!
Thursday and Friday performances are 7.30pm and so far we are only having matinee performances Saturday and Sunday at 2.30pm.
Tickets are on sale online only at the moment through the link above, but we’ll keep you updated on additional ways to purchase tickets. Email email@example.com with any ticket queries you may have.
For your safety we have reduced our audience capacity to allow for social distancing of groups. We ask that audience members, with the exception of those who are exempt, wear a mask while in the theatre. Although there will be musical numbers as part of the performance, we will record all singing ahead of time for your protection. Hand sanitiser will be available at a number of points in the theatre. We will ventilate the theatre as much as possible, and have CO2 monitors in place. There will also be enhanced cleaning procedures in place.

the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy

MAD presents the Radio Play, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (part 1, or ‘Fit the First’) by Douglas Adams.
Link to listen here -
In the first few weeks of lockdown back in April, MAD decided to try our hand at a radio play. Through the next few months some members met virtually, twice a week, rehearsing this production. The experience not only allowed us a creative outlet, a social connection with a familiar process and ‘something to do’ but it also was a huge learning process for everyone.
The cast not only produced all the character voices, they also created as many of the sound effects as possible using anything they could find! All the ‘music’ was also created by members. We also learned the best ways of gathering individual ‘voices’, and were able to involve those not able to join the virtual rehearsals. Each voice or effect was collected individually and edited together - another skill we had to learn!
So please when you listen, understand that the creation of this production is our first attempt at this type of production. We are still editing ‘Fit the Second’ which should be completed by the end of October. We hope you enjoy listening even half as much as we have enjoyed making this.
This has been a ‘not-for-profit’ production.
