The Chorus Auditions, held last Monday in the Village Hall were a great success! We now have 13 youngsters to add to our cast – and of those 13, 7 had been in a previous panto and 6 had not! This is really good, as it gives other children a chance to be in the panto, bringing new ideas and abilities with them and joining a very happy company.
Our new Choreographer, Kim Robinson, put them through their paces with a simple but effective dance routine, Director Nic Wilson set them a very amusing acting challenge and I gave them an easy way to sing an old favourite thus everyone had a good time “front of House!”
The real fun of the evening ,we later discovered, was in the Social Room, where the childrens’ parents and carers had gathered to meet the Backstage Team over a cup of tea or coffee, served with biscuits. It turned out that many of the parents had also been in the pantomimes themselves some few years ago and they had a wonderful “catch-up” session together! We also managed to recruit some of them to help with the next production, so – a really good night all round!
If you missed it and would still like to be involved in the show in some way, do get in touch through the Website or speak to one of the Production Team, we would love to hear from you.
