DELIGHTED ... Dame Dotty and Tommy, played by Bob Stott, right, and Ray Spencer, celebrate next years booming ticket sales.

A PANTO in South Tyneside – which hasn’t even been written – has already sold more than 3,000 tickets.

Scores of people have snapped up seats for next year’s Cinderella, the panto planned for the Customs House, South Shields, despite this year’s festive show, Dick Whittington, still being in full swing.

Many fans have walked straight out of the show and booked up their tickets for next year in advance.

Although this year is panto dame veteran Bob Stott’s last time on stage after 37 years, theatre bosses think people are keen to see Cinders because it will have three dames.

Customs House executive director, Ray Spencer, MBE, said: “I am absolutely delighted that our audiences are enjoying this year’s pantomime so much that they are already booking up for next year’s show.

“Cinderella is always a huge favourite with The Customs House cast and audience, and we are already looking forward to next year’s show.

“Dick Whittington has been a huge success already, and we promise more fairytale magic and good old family entertainment next year.

“We don’t have a cast yet and the story hasn’t been written, but we can promise next year’s pantomime will have three dames and will carry on with The Customs House tradition of the ‘little panto with the big heart’.”

If panto fans get in quickly, they can cash in on a special offer – all tickets booked before midnight on December 31 will be sold at this year’s prices.

To book tickets for Dick Whittington or Cinderella, call the Customs House box office on 454 1234, or visit www.customshouse.co.uk.

Tickets for Cinderella start at £8.
