Theatr Clwyd is calling for donations of pink teddy bears fit for a rock ‘n’ roll panto. 

Currently, the wardrobe department is hard at work creating costumes for this year’s rock ‘n’ roll panto – Sleeping Beauty, designed by Adrian Gee.

The theatre, in Mold, is one of only four in the UK to build set and props, as well as make costumes all on-site.

This week Theatr Clwyd put a call out to their followers as they need help in making a particular cosy, cuddly costume.

They are on the hunt for pink teddy bears (maximum 25cm tall) to be part of this year’s show.

Having gone on a bear hunt around local charity shops they are still in need of a few more and have asked if anyone has any to donate.

Unfortunately, the bears won’t be able to be returned so only donate bears that you are happy to give away.

If you have any bears that fit the bill, you can drop them off at Theatr Clwyd St David’s Building, Daniel Owen Square between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Theatr Clwyd asks that you don’t leave bears unattended, only with a member of staff, as they do not want them to get wet or lost.

For one year only Theatr Clwyd’s rock ‘n’ roll panto takes place in a Big Top Tent as the re-development of the building continues.

The Big Top will seat over 900 audience members on three sides, meaning audiences will be closer to the action than ever before. The space is heated and has padded seats.

There is level access with 10 wheelchair spaces available, the shuttle bus will also be running from the car park for those that need it.

Tickets are selling fast for this year’s show with over 18,000 already sold, so don’t miss out, be quick and book now.

Sleeping Beauty can be seen at Theatr Clwyd (Big Top) from Thursday, November 30 2023 to Saturday, January 6, 2024.
