The classic British sit com Fawlty Towers is coming to Chandler’s Ford this week.
Chandler’s Ford Chameleon Theatre Company will bring the ridiculous life in the dysfunctional Fawlty Towers to Chandler’s Ford residents from tomorrow.
The Chameleons will be performing for 5 nights. The first night’s performance on Tuesday is the specially invited audience night, when the Chameleons bring in the older friends from the local care homes in Chandler’s Ford to give them a treat they’ll never forget.
The Chameleons will bring a slice of life of the well-known hotel to nearly 460 audience this week.
All tickets had been snatched up very quickly. If you haven’t bought tickets for Fawlty Towers, remember to act quickly for their next show in July.
July – Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn
In July the Chameleons are staging Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn. This will also be a Ploughman Supper Night with wine for £10. The Chameleons will lay up tables of 6 but it means they can’t seat as many people for this style of show – maximum 60 per night rather than 92 making it important for people to book as early as possible.
Nick Coleman, publicity officer and actor of the Chameleons, told me the best way to buy tickets for the Chameleons’ shows is to visit Chameleon Theatre Company and sign up to their eNewsletters. You’ll get a two-week Advance Booking privilege over the public.

The Chameleon Theatre Company of Chandler’s Ford traditionally stage 3 x One Act plays in April combining them into a full evening’s entertainment. This year, The Chameleons will be staging 3 episodes from the popular BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers. The episodes chosen are
A Touch of Class – First broadcast in September 1975, this is the one when Basil decides he needs a better class of guest for his hotel which he achieved but with disastrous results!
Communication Problems – this one features Mrs Richards a short-sighted, deaf and aggressive old woman who extends the life of her batteries by leaving her hearing aid switched off!
The Hotel Inspectors – the one when Basil hears there are hotel inspectors roaming Torquay incognito, suddenly realises with horror that the guest he has been verbally abusing could easily be one of them.
