Camelot the Panto, an Arthurian tale, by Ben Crocker, had the audience entranced throughout the evening. A journey from Camelot through an Enchanted Forest, past a shrieking bog to Misty Mountain Castle with a stay in a Haunted Hotel along the route gave the audience a magical mystery tour.

The sets were all well-constructed and gave a strong background to the actors. The costumes were fantastic and it was obvious that a lot of hard work had gone into their design and creation. The costumes helped the cast to create their characters with tremendous style. The show was very well cast and involved a wide age range. The lead characters were as strong as ever but there was a group of youngsters who equipped themselves extremely well for their roles. I look forward to seeing them again in the future.

Overton Dramatic Society is a talented group who entertain their local community with great panache and professionalism.
