Tracing our origin back to 1943 and officially formed in 1944 makes 2018/19 the society's 75th Anniversary season.
The first 5 shows were all Revues, a very popular form of entertainment in those days. Building confidence (and a stage—literally!) Christmas 1946 saw the society’s first pantomime and the choice was, of course, Cinderella.
As the world’s most popular pantomime, it is no surprise that we have presented it 8 times over the years, notably in our 50th and 60th anniversary years, and most recently in 2010.
We have used various scripts over the years (and read many more) but still consider the best for a truly traditional family pantomime to be the one by John Morley
Company auditions will be at 2pm, Dancers at 2:30pm and Principals at 3pm as usual.
Copies of the script will cost £5 and will be available to buy at the AGM, together with the list of audition pieces.
