An Easter Panto for Family Fun!

In rehearsal at The Pavillion, Hare & Hounds. Evil stepmother with her beauty queen daughters.

Funny Business Theatre Company present their Easter Family Panto – Cinderella, from 28 March to 1 April, at The Pavilion, Hare & Hounds, Watery Lane, Coventry CV7 8 AJ. Performances are 28 & 29 Mar @ 7pm. 30, 31 Mar & 1 Apr @ 2pm. Tickets are just £5.



 A fabulous family Easter pantomime will be staged by Funny Business Theatre Company based at the Hare and Hounds in Coventry.


Run by husband and wife team, Chris and Charlie Lewis, this year’s show marks five years of Funny Business producing shows with Cinderella being their 10th.

Cinderella with her mean step-sisters.


The panto was written by Charlie and the pair are co-directing the play. This year is a special year as it’s also the couple’s 10th anniversary of when they first met.


Charlie explained, “We were both in a production of Cinderella. He played Buttons and I played an Ugly Sister, so this time we are swapping roles. Each year we put on a small panto at Christmas that lasts two or three dates and then a big Easter Panto.”

The Prince, The King, Dandini and the doorman.


So far, they have performed:  Red Riding Hood; Goldilocks; Fillongley Fright Night (Walk through attraction); Sent to Coventry, bab! (Original production); Aladdin; Witches of Fillongley (Walk through attraction); A Christmas Carol; Dick Whittington and Hansel & Gretal.


Charlie added, “For this production, we are lucky enough to have Liberty Dance and Performing Arts on board to choreograph the show.”


Funny Business are a community based theatre company who keep their prices very low so that as many people as possible can access theatre. They also take their shows into schools on occasion, and they provide educational shows for secondary schools.


“Our aim is to bring theatre to as many people as possible through many different means,” said Charlie.
