Frequently asked

questions

When is the next show?

Our next show is expected to be in February 2023.

How can I buy tickets?

Tickets for the next show will be available online via this website, and by telephone.

What are the ticket prices?

This year (2022) we’re making some changes to ticket pricing, especially for Saturday evening, where prices will be reduced to match those for the other shows. We’re also re-introducing concessionary prices for under 16s for the Saturday evening show for the first time for 20 years. Because of significant rises in the cost of online sales, unfortunately we are having to introduce a 50p per ticket booking fee. So the total prices for all shows will be £8.50 for adults and £5.50 for under 16s.

How can I get involved?

An open meeting is held every September. It’s the perfect time to join if you want to perform on stage. We are always looking for help backstage and with front of house, and if you are interested in those jobs you can usually join any time. Either way, we always welcome new faces. We’re a friendly bunch, and being part of the panto is a great way to get to know new people. Contact us via this website. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings and, in the weeks before the shows, on Sundays. And you don’t have to live in Barkway - provided you can get to rehearsals! People from all over the area take part.

How can my children get involved?

As you may have seen, the pantomime usually includes lots of parts for a junior cast. There is no need for children to come to the open meeting. Recruitment takes place through local schools - or you can contact us through the website and the junior cast director will get in touch.

Where do you get your scripts from?

We write our own scripts, produced from the fertile imaginations of our very own creative team. Yes, we know. Don’t worry, we’re keeping a close eye on them.
Tell me more about the Barkway Players The Barkway Players have now performed 28 annual shows.  Every one has been written in-house by the Players’ creative team.    Barkway shows feature music, jokes and chances for audience participation, as you would expect.  But the Players like to think that their slightly quirky ideas, as well as their approach to songs and dances,  mean they offer something a little bit different from what you would expect from an average village pantomime.
