Our very first summer pantomime, Aladdin, saw success and heartbreak.
Our 2022 pantomime of Aladdin (written and directed by Catherine Everitt) was originally meant to be perfromed in January 2022 but due to COVID was cancelled and for the first time in our 50 year history, was re-arranged for summer (July 2022). The first weekend was a hugh success, enjoyed by audiences but sadly we had to cancel the second weekend when key members of the cast and crew were struck with the dreaded COVID. However despite this we had gret fun with this pantomime with a fantastic cast, crew and director/producer, Catherine Everitt assisted by Pip Richards.
Aladdin was set in China with plenty of jokes, songs, dances and all the excitment and fun audiences have come to expect from our pantomimes. It certianly is a pantomime that will never be forgotten.
