Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre

Oh No It Isn’t!

For ages 12+ (strong language)
Fri 9 Dec

5pm & 8pm
Approx 60 mins (no interval)
Full £16.50. Concessions £13.50.

They’re the best of sisters on stage but the worst of friends off it...

It’s the final performance of Cinderella in a moth-eaten, regional theatre and backstage tensions threaten to boil over onstage. Will the egotism, one-up-manship and politics remain confined to the dressing room? Will the ugly sisters keep the professional professional and the personal personal? Will we ever find out what happened during Babes In The Wood?
Based on a lifetime of experience onstage and backstage Oh No It Isn't! is not technically a pantomime but a hilariously funny and beautifully moving new play exploring the highs and lows of life in the theatre.
Written by Great British Pantomime Award nominee Luke Adamson and using real anecdotes and stories it is an impassioned yet tender love letter to the world of performance.

★★★★★ "If I laugh this much at any full blown pantomimes this year, then I will be most surprised. As entertainment goes – with depth to it – then you will not get better than this."    ReviewsGate
“It’s brilliantly funny, madcap and slapstick combined with poignancy...not to be missed” Sandie Coleman
"Oh No It Isn’t! isn't Christmas fluff, but it is a lovely piece of theatre that highlights love, loss, friendship, loneliness and rejection". Radio St Austell Bay
"If you get a chance get along to see this lovely, funny and poignant taker on the panto dame tradition. A grand alternative Christmas show” – Dan Richards

About Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre
Ha-Hum-Ah is an award winning North Cornwall based theatre and film production company. We create innovative and ambitious stories that stimulates the imagination.
Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre was established in 2018 to offer the support and framework for artists to produce their own work with the aid and collaboration of others. Many artists don’t fulfil their artistic potential, due to the daunting prospects and challenges with producing and staging their own work. In response Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre was formed to act as a co-operative theatre company where actors, director, writers and creatives of all backgrounds could work together in realising and harnessing each other’s creativity. Through this process we believe we’ve tapped into a unique, exciting and vibrant way of creating theatre for artists and audiences alike.
In 2021 Ha-Hum-Ah expanded into the world of film with the creation of Ha-Hum-Ah Films, with the aim of bringing our unique and inventive style of telling stories to the world of motion pictures.
