Report

Author: Wendy Winterburn

This was another original panto written by the group’s talented writer Betty Morris.

It was lovely to see the different ages on stage, some of whom had never been on stage before.  I loved the evil laugh from Little Crystal played by Meg Boardman.  The young cast did very well in their parts.

Count Hans Neesand played by David Jones got the boos his character deserved, and I loved the pretend horse Alan who accompanied Prince Foxglove played by Hilary Jones.  The interaction between Price Foxglove and grown up Rapunzel was very good.

Fairy Diamond played by Laura Gwynne was very good with her street talk.   I also enjoyed grown up Amethyst played by Niamh Lloyd hitting people with a blow up hammer.

It was hysterical see Bergamot Goodbody, played by Paul Oliver, trying to do ballet at the Count’s party.

All choreography was well performed by the cast, I enjoyed the comedic ballet dance together with the number with gymnastic ribbons.  The music kept the feet tapping especially the final song ‘Nobody loves me, loves me better’.

Thank you, Magna, for an enjoyable evening.
