TMTG follows on from last year’s Rose Bowl Award-winning pantomime Aladdin with this super-cool offering, especially written for the group by our own Lizzie Lindsell. Based on Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale of the same name, The Snow Queen is packed with all the traditional fun of the show, with audience participation, hilarious comedy and catchy musical numbers. Plus drama, romance . . . and the occasional tap-dancing penguin. Maybe even a talking snowman or two?

So come on in out of the cold for this extravaganza of frozen frolics, taking place on the Armstrong Hall stage in February 2017. It’ll be “ice” to see you.

Around February in the town of Björnborg, Frida Longjohns - the Winter Fairy - passes the Season Baton to April Honeyblossom, Sprite of the Spring. Thus, the seasons roll on, as everyone knows. But this year, ice-infatuated Queen Bianca is determined to freeze the change and make sure it stays winter forever! (Cue evil laugh.) With her snowflake subjects to obey her every command, will she succeed?

What can young Kristin do to save her fiancé Henrik from the Queen’s icy clutches?

Will Dame Gerda ever manage to organise her granddaughter’s wedding?

Curtain Comes Down

And so the curtain comes down on another TMTG pantomime. Thank you to everybody who came along to support "The Snow Queen" and we hope to see you again soon!

Looking forward to seeing everybody over the week and thank you all for your support so far.

Snowing!

It's snowing (albeit only slightly) and it's the final weekend before "The Snow Queen" opens at the Armstrong Hall. Coincidence? WE THINK NOT!

Moved In

"The Snow Queen" has moved into the Armstrong Hall!

TMTG Juniors in Panto

Our upcoming pantomime "The Snow Queen" includes 6 members of TMTG Juniors who are doing a fabulous job in rehearsals so far. Here there are in full flow, and you'll be able to see them onstage at the Armstong Hall in just TWO WEEKS time!

Advertising Goes Up

Has anyone spotted our Snow Queen publicity around Thornbury yet? Mark and Martin had 'snow' problem putting up these roadside boards yesterday, now there's no excuse for not remembering to book those tickets

!

More Scenary and Construction

We're back down at our scenery store this morning building and painting scenery for "The Snow Queen". Just a few weeks to go now!

Frosty Timelapse

Well we suppose it won't be giving TOO much away to share this time-lapse video of our rehearsal for "The Snow Queen" at the Armstrong Hall last night. You'll have to buy a ticket if you want to see the slowed down version though..

.

First Armstrong Hall Rehearsal

Rehearsing at the Armstrong Hall for "The Snow Queen" tonight, must mean that the show is getting close!

Scenary Building & Painting

It's really quite chilly building and painting scenery this morning, but perhaps we should just call it method acting for "The Snow Queen"?

24 hour flash sale: 2 for 1 on The Snow Queen tickets from 9am on 19th January

Arts organisations in Bristol and Bath are having a 'Bristol & Bath Jan Arts Flash Sale' tomorrow, so we thought we would join in with a little sale of our own!

Something a Bit Different

Come and see something different this February half term with our production of "The Snow Queen", at the Armstrong Hall from 15th-18th Feb (inc. Friday & Saturday afternoons). We're certainly not following the panto crowd this year!

One Month To Go

Just ONE MONTH to go until opening night, so here's a preview of our pantomime "The Snow Queen" with some pictures from today's photoshoot!

Box Office Open

Our box office for "The Snow Queen" opens tomorrow (7th Jan) at Lisa Costa Residential Sales & Lettings, 53 High Street Thornbury, so we must be getting close!

Radio Bristol

Who heard Lizzie Lindsell, TMTG member and writer & director of our upcoming pantomime "The Snow Queen" on BBC Radio Bristol this morning? She chatted about why she loves pantomime as well as our show in February...do go and have a listen!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Thornbury Musical Theatre Group! Make our Christmas by buying some tickets for our pantomime "The Snow Queen" (15th-18th February)

Panto Day

Happy Panto Day everyone! (Oh yes it is!)

While you celebrate (which you obviously are), why not get yourself some tickets to our pantomime "The Snow Queen", which is on 15th-18th February. It might seem a long way off but it's actually only 1,460 hours away so y'know, you haven't got long...

TMTG needs you!

Inspired by one of our recent performances? Or looking for a new hobby? TMTG needs you!

After a successful casting for our upcoming pantomime "The Snow Queen" (15th-18th Feb) we are still looking for MEN to join our chorus. If you are interested, or know anyone who is, please get in touch via membership@tmtg.co.uk, we'd be delighted hear from you.

(And don't worry, there will be no requirement to dance if that isn't your thing, although we won't stop you joining in!)

Hurrah to the cast and crew

I wanted to tell you how much we'd enjoyed the panto last week. Well done you for all the blood, sweat, tears and toil to make it a reality. Hurrah to the cast and crew.
