Chicago razzle dazzles audiences as best-selling show ever!

Chicago, Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s (PFT) flagship summer musical, has smashed all previous box office records and become the best-selling show in PFT’s 67-year history!

To-date, Chicago has been seen by over 21,000 people, and has generated over half a million in box office income. To satisfy demand, PFT has extended its run of Chicago for an additional 8-show week. The show must close on 20th October.

“This is fantastic news for PFT”, said Kris Bryce, the theatre’s Executive Director. “To have a high profile show with the critical success of Chicago attracts visitors to Perthshire from across the world. It benefits regional and national economies and demonstrates that Highland Perthshire is the home of extraordinary theatre, comparable to the West End.”

Mr. Bryce added, “We’re currently focused on our creative and capital development ambitions for PFT which will see us attract more visitors to the area and increase our contribution to the Scottish culture and tourism sectors. Tay Cities Deal investment from the UK and Scottish Governments is critical to this and we’re looking forward to the forthcoming deal announcement.”
