Twice previously postponed for bad weather this show with a new twist on an old tale finally gets in front of its audience and launches Pantomime Season 2018!
First night (Thursday) was a hoot!
The children were particularly good, the adults very amusing including saxophone playing Topsy - or was it Turvey
The musicians were excellent!
But above all it's a lovely happy, family entertainment - a bit of light hearted fun for a stormy winter's night!
In the words of Director Judy Uren:
"Third time lucky. First we had to postpone because a tornado blew the roof off our theatre. then, at our second attempt, the first snow and loads of ice for years drove everyone home off the roads. Luckily, we were insured so, now, here we go again, solvent, re-rehearsed and revitalised. there are some changes; we have with regret had to say goodbye to several of our young cast, who must give priority to studying for exams. We welcome some new faces: look out for Principal Boy and Girl, Tom and Sophie, both from Priestlands School."
