Snow Stops Play!

East Durham College would like to advise that the pantomime performances planned for next week have had to be cancelled.

Billy Nicholson, Head of Performing Arts, explains: “We have decided to postpone the panto due to the affects of the recent closure of the College, due to the snow, on our planned rehearsal programme this week.

“We want to ensure that the production is as professional as possible. We also assess the students’ performances as part of their course, so don’t want the lack of rehearsals to have a detrimental impact on the students’ grades.”

A group of over 20 Performing Arts students had been planning to perform Cinderella in the College’s Lubetkin Theatre at the Peterlee Campus on Willerby Grove next week.

The panto will now be held on Wednesday 26th, Thursday 27th and Friday 28th of January at 7.00pm, doors open at 6.30pm. There will also be two matinee performances on Thursday and Friday at 12.30pm.

A traditional family pantomime suitable for all ages. Tickets cost £6 for adult and £4 for kids and concessions.
