Work started on the show in March 2020, but in 2021 the show was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And now, this years show has also been postponed.

"It is with deep regret that we have to announce that we are having to cancel our 2022 production of Puss in Boots," said a spokesperson for Bridgwater Pantomime Society.

"Due to Covid-19 and a lack of ticket sales we are finding it difficult to proceed at this moment in time.

"We would like to thank all our patrons who have purchase tickets for their continued support and will be in touch with those whose numbers we have in order to arrange a refund.

"Whilst rehearsals were going really well, everyone involved is extremely disappointed not to be entertaining you this year. Our junior members were especially upset.

"We have thought long and hard about taking these measures, but we could see no other way forward.

"Puss in Boots will be staged at the Town Hall within the next year… oh yes it will!"

If the pantomime society do not have your number in order to contact you to arrange a refund, then call the box office on 07729 573954.
