Panto season is quickly approaching and we are full steam ahead here at the Mercury getting everything made, finished and ready to go for opening night on 25 Nov! Panto is one of the most exciting times here at the theatre and we decided to document two of our busiest departments to give you a sneak peek at the set and costumes.
Our brilliant workshop team have been working non-stop creating a wonderful set for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, here at the Mercury, we are fortunate enough to have a full-time workshop on site, meaning that all of our beautiful Made in Colchester sets are made in-house by our talented team.
