For the third year in a row, The Lighthouse Theatre is excited to once again welcome Wilson Browne Solicitors as corporate sponsors for Kettering’s spectacular panto this Christmas, Cinderella. Wilson Browne first partnered with The Lighthouse in 2017 for the record-breaking, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs which played to over 17,500 people. 2018’s Aladdin wowed thousands of local people with show stopping musical numbers, beautiful costumes and hilarious gags. Cinderella 2019 promises to be BIGGER and BETTER than ever proving that the two organisations make a winning combination.
Plans are already well under way for this year’s show and the two organisations are working on some spell-binding ideas and magical surprises together for lucky audience members. Who needs a Fairy Godmother?
David Corbishley, Theatre Manager at the Lighthouse Theatre said:
“Last year’s panto, Aladdin, was a huge success and one of our best pantomimes yet and we are delighted to be working alongside Wilson Browne once again this year. The Lighthouse Theatre pantomime has become an annual tradition for friends and families throughout Kettering and the local area. With Wilson Browne supporting the show we have seen our Christmas audiences growing year on year and with a little help from our sponsors, the people of Kettering shall go to the ball!”
Wayne Jenkins, BD & Marketing Director at Wilson Browne Solicitors added:
“It’s great to be working with The Lighthouse Theatre for the third year in a row. The firm has its roots firmly in the communities in which it operates – most of our employees and clients are local and we work hard to ensure we give something back. As well as supporting local arts and entertainment we’re also looking to spread some Christmas magic of our own with some great prizes, connected to the panto. Even miracles take a little time … so follow the Wilson Browne social media sites to get involved. We can’t promise a horse drawn carriage or your own Prince Charming, but we can be a bit like a fairy godmother and magic-up some great prizes for a few lucky winners. “
