69th Annual Pantomime
Welcome to our 69th annual pantomime and this years production of Sleeping Beauty, which we are performing for only the third time. The story of Sleeping Beauty first appeared as part of The Thousand and One Nights Tale and the traditional tale, that we are more familiar with, was first performed in the early 19th Century (but not by us!). Since then the story has evolved to become a popular ballet, film and of course pantomime.
As usual, our cast this year is mainly young people with varying amounts of pantomime experience. Some progressing through to more senior roles and some treading the boards for the first time, together with a couple of familiar faces to help them along. We also welcome back Adam Walker and Caroline Jones, who are returning to the stage after a few years away and have stepped in to play the King and Queen of Beestonia. Also Mark Lambert who is our Musical Director for the first time since 1992.
The show is a massive team effort and we thank everyone involved in making this production happen.
As always we have, all the key ingredients of any pantomime, hero’s to cheer and baddies to boo together with songs and jokes for all.
So please join in, support the young people and enjoy the show.
Paul Lambert and Martin Collins
