STAFF at the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch celebrated the commercial and critical performances of their autumn 2016 shows on Wednesday, February 8.
Newly released figures showed that Made in Dagenham, A Month of Sundays and Partners in Crime attracted just under 45,000 people, 4,773 more than autumn 2015.
Cinderella, the theatre’s Christmas pantomime, also generated more than half a million pounds, the first time a pantomime has done so in Queen’s Theatre’s history.
Douglas Rintoul, artistic director at Queen’s Theatre said: “I am thrilled that my first season has been so successful. And I want to say a big thank you to our audiences and our brilliant team of staff and supporters at the Queen’s Theatre. Our current spring season is set to build on this success. Our production of The Crucible has already sold more advance tickets than any other serious drama in the recent history of the theatre (check this for me). And we have exciting plans afoot for the next few years. So watch this space.”
