The cast of ‘Peter Pan’ performed to a sold out crowd on its opening night at Camberley Theatre on Tuesday night. The delighted audience included the 8 families who were given their family tickets courtesy of the Golden Envelopes which were hidden around Camberley for ten days before the panto season started.

Inside the envelopes, along with a family ticket, was a letter, explaining what the person who found it must do:

‘Now you’ve found a golden envelope you must give these tickets to someone you think deserves a treat or is in need of a Christmas pick-me-up.

‘Perhaps you know a family member, a friend, colleague, charity or someone in your community who would love to see ‘Peter Pan’ and put a smile on their face?’.

All 8 envelopes were found and the 8 families were among the sold out crowd on Tuesday night. The theatre received messages from the people who had been given the tickets prior to the performance. Their stories ranged from losing a loved one, illness in the family to being plain down on their luck. Every envelope found was given away in the true spirit of the venture.

A video which gave details of the Golden Envelopes has been viewed 12k times with the people of Camberley really getting behind the idea.

Theatre manager, Andy Edmeads, who’s idea it was said:

‘I am so pleased that this giveaway with a twist worked so well. It was heart-warming to see our community joining together and give the tickets to families who needed a little extra cheer this Christmas. Thanks so much to all those who took part, whether you found an envelope or not. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas from all of us at Camberley Theatre and the cast of ‘Peter Pan’.
