Once Upon A Time in Hotwells ...

At the deadly stroke of millennium midnight chaos threatens to engulf the world.

But fear not, help is at hand!

A motley crew of time travellers travel back in time seeking the solution.

Can they save the world, defeat the deadly millennium bug, keep a straight face and get home in time for tea?

Or will it all descend into Pantomime?

Witches, strolling players, a wandering minstrel and a robber baron rub shoulders with the world's first time travelling pantomime horse. Amidst all the lunacy there is a doctor in the house. Unfortunately he thinks he's a Time lord.Who is he? That's right, and he really hates Doctor Who jokes.

Millennium Mayhem was the third large scale production by the Stepping Out Theatre Company.

A video of this production in a special souvenir case is available from Stepping Out Theatre Company priced at £10 (includes package and posting).
