WINTER 2017-18




What happens when you ask an anarchic band of brothers-in-comedy to write a panto?

CINDERELLA AND THE BEANSTALK by TOM favourites Sleeping Trees, was a five-star hit at Theatre503, and it’s coming here with a brand new cast this Christmas. Bring your kids, your nan, your workmates and other assorted drinking buddies, as this is a laugh-until-you-cry panto for everyone, without the clichés. Oh yes it is!

Children (and their nostalgic adults) will be delighted by MISCHIEF AND MYSTERY IN MOOMIN VALLEY, where the titular marshmallowy creatures that have charmed several generations are brought to life through evocative puppetry, sets and costumes created true to the original artwork by Tove Jansson.

Our cult film series TOM’S FILM CLUB chimes in on the Christmas theme with Tim Burton’s alternative yuletide classic BATMAN RETURNS. And with a season that also celebrates the films of LUC BESSON, DAVID LYNCH and the recently departed HARRY DEAN STANTON, you’ll want to come more than once. Snap up a two-film saver (£10) or a season pass (£24).

And as for our own traditions… Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a familiar shameless plug, so here it is: Give a theatre nut you know the gift of a TOM’S FRIENDS membership, so they can get savings on TOM’s shows all year round, while you get to feel all warm and fuzzy from supporting our lovely venue.

Wishing you a merry one,

The TOM Team
