Panto 2024...time to get writing!
2023: Snow White and Rose Red
Come and see this wonderful panto written by Dame Dolly herself, Tom Guest. Full of the usual singing, dancing, booing, audience participation and some dwarves.
Playing Snow White and Rose Red are Lucy Akinson and Kelsey White with Amy Henery and Emily Legender and the Princes Hans and Otto.
Sarah Legender brings her usual nastiness as the Queen and Peter Hook magically appears as the mirror.

2022: Sleeping Beauty
The Players Panto this year was Sleeping Beauty and if you were lucky enough to get a ticket to the sold out show, then you were treated to a fantastic evening of entertainment!
The SPYS were brilliant as usual in their roles of villagers and dancers with some of them taking lead roles this year! Charlie Lines and George Nott shared the role of Rex (the dinosaur) while Alex Warrand took on the role of Fleur, one of the 6 fairies!
The other fairies in Fairy Lilac’s troupe were played by Annette Lawson, Carol James, Gill Hook and Meg Edgoose-Clubley, while Rosemary Jones led the good guys to a positive outcome.
Ste Edgoose-Clubley and Hilary Ramful were daft as brushes as Folle and Fou, the palace guards, while Jacqui O’Meara and Paul Walker played the King and Queen with much pomp and circumstance!
The wicked fairy, Carabosse, was played by Sarah Legender while her daughter Emily took on the role of Sylvie, an aid of Prince Phillippe, played by Lucy Atkinson.
The title character Aurora/Briar Rose was played by Kelsey White, who also choreographed the show, while Amy Henery played her brother Gus. Tom Guest played their mother, washerwoman extraordinaire Lucy Lavage, and his rendition of ‘All by myself’ will haunt audiences for years to come.
The Panto had a 90s pop inspired soundtrack including Steps, SClub7 and Westlife among others and Director Sarah Atkinson said, ‘It has been so much fun to pull together this amazing show. Thanks to everyone involved in the production!’
