The Phoenix Revue Company is a Cirencester-based theatre group that has been running for over half a century.

Now under the stewardship of local theatre lovers Amy-May Knowles and Kieran Powell, the company performs once a year, bringing pantomime to the town every January.

“Our show this year is The Wizard of Oz,” explained Amy, “it’s looking like it’s going to be one of our funniest shows yet!

“It’s going to be a huge amount of fun and have all the laughs, audience participation, music, fantastic production value and heart that Cirencester have come to know our shows for.”

Amy has worked and lived in Cirencester her whole life and says she has always had a keen interest in theatre and performing, first getting involved with the Phoenix Revue Company as a child.

Kieran, originally from Nailsworth but now living in Cirencester, is a professional entertainer and alongside Amy produces and directs the show.

“Both myself and Kieran share the roles of producing and directing the shows,” said Amy.

“Due to Kieran’s commitments performing away he usually produces more from afar and I direct up until closer to the show when we both do everything.”

This year’s pantomime will be at the Bingham Hall from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th January.

Rehearsals have been ongoing since September, and Amy says audiences should expect a unique show.

She added: “We are certainly laughing a lot in rehearsals. It’s not your traditional pantomime – but certainly has every traditional element with a bit of a 21st century twist!

“We now have over 50 people involved with putting on the show each year. Everyone is a volunteer and gives up their time to entertain the people of Cirencester.”
