As well as the previously announced co-production with Mercury Theatre Colchester, in collaboration with Mischief, of the world première of Good Luck, Studio, written by Henry Shields and directed by Henry Lewis, the company today announce the return of their annual pantomime, with a new production of Cinderella, directed by Machin.

Gareth Machin said today, I am delighted to announce our Autumn season, a vibrant mix of our own productions, visiting shows and one-night special events. The Mischief production ‘Good Luck, Studio’ will be premiering at Salisbury Playhouse in October and we are particularly excited to announce that Cinderella will finally be going to the ball as we bring pantomime and festive spirit back to Salisbury this Christmas!
