The Charter Theatre, Preston is delighted to mark Shakespeare's 450th birthday by throwing him the biggest party he has ever seen with the largest Shakespeare Schools Festival to date. 35,000 young people will take to professional stages across the UK. From Southampton to Inverness, from Londonderry to Norwich, 130 theatres will be hosting a party to remember. Schools will be performing here, on our stage, from Tuesday 11th to Friday 14th November.

The Shakespeare Schools Festival works with over 1000 secondary, primary and special schools all over the UK, making it possible for them to stage abridged Shakespeare productions in their local professional theatre.

Each night up to four schools will perform four different Shakespeare plays. Come and celebrate the achievements of your local schools in a wonderful evening of entertainment.

“Had I encountered something like Shakespeare Schools Festival, I believe my life would have bounced forward over some of the inhibitions and incomprehensions of adolescence. Childhood deserves such luck” Sir Tom Stoppard, SSF Patron

"It was fantastic to see the children up there and having the chance to showcase skills their parents may have never seen before. Just magical”

Luke Broughton, St. Stephen's CE Primary School

DUGGIE CHAPMAN MBE PRESENTS

Duggie Chapman MBE will be ensuring fun for all this Christmas when he brings his family favourite,  Snow White and The Magnificent Seven, to the Preston Charter Theatre this Christmas  Jam-packed with fun, laughter, hissing and good old fashioned slap-stick it’ll be a show not to be missed.

Written and directed by Duggie, this year’s show will be a festive treat complete with a live band, beautiful costumes and spectacular sets not to mention a talented cast with years of experience.

 Starring none other than, comedy legend Jimmy Cricket in the role of Muddles audiences are sure to be delighted both young and old.  Famous for his trademark wellies on the wrong feet and funny hat, theatre-goers are bound to be told “come ere!”, “and there’s more” as he reads his letter from his mammy!

 

Supporting Jimmy are the Magnificent Seven, more commonly known as Goody, Loopy, Noisy, Lazy, Sneezy, Growler and Shabby played by Malcolm, Trevor, Mark, Melanie, Blake, Luke and Glynn.  Magnificent couldn’t be more appropriate as their combined film and tv credits give most of Hollywood a run for their money.  Credits include Star Wars, Harry Potter, Willow, Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, Labyrinth and Phoenix Nights to name but a few!  Experts in pantomimes as well as tv and film, the Magnificent Seven guarantee plenty of giggles.

 

Also joining the cast is Jim Whelan as the Henchman, a regular on Coronation Street as Rev Todd and with other tv credits including The Liver Birds, Crown Court, Cracker, Heartbeat, Emmerdale, The Royle Family, Blackpool and Last of the Summer Wine. 

Panto veteran Pete Lindup will be appearing in his 25th pantomime as Sarah The Cook alongside Yvonne Patterson as Queen Cruella.  Yvonne’s theatre credits include Helen in A Taste of Honey, Lady Hewlett in WAG!- the musical which ran in the West End.

Adam Trembath will make his Preston debut as The Prince and Blackpool gal Kristina Castellina will take on the title role of Snow White.
