Following two separate days of auditions for this year’s panto, we are delighted to announce that we have a full complement of actors, including some new faces, to enable us to produce a full version of ‘Humpty Dumpty’ (if you remember, last year’s production had to be cut down to ‘Snow White and the Three Dwarves’!). Rehearsals have already started, and the actual dates of the performances will be announced soon, but we’re hoping to build on last year’s success and run for three nights instead of just two.
To help raise funds for the panto, we will be holding some quiz evenings in Chester Green, the first of which will be on Friday, 7th October, in the Coach and Horses, Mansfield Road. Other dates/venues will be announced later. Because of the format of the quiz, we will need small prizes for these evenings, so if you can donate anything (unwanted Christmas/birthday gifts, a spare bottle of wine – if there is such a thing! – for example), we would be really grateful. Donations can be left with Mick, the landlord of the Coach and Horses, or at Isobel the Florist’s, so many thanks to them for that support. We plan on it being a slightly different quiz night, so come along and have some fun as well as helping to raise money. The quiz will start at 8pm.
