Sinbad - Our 2017 Pantomime
We hope that everyone who came to see Sinbad enjoyed the performance. As usual it was littered with familiar and a few unfamiliar jokes and adlibs.
We were very proud of our younger members who took some of the lead or multiple parts and performed them exceptionally well.
Our scenery was suberbly painted as usual and this year we had lightweight flats which meant that all the cast could be involved in scene changing. We were indebted to the help given by the Dodgy Jammers Ukulele group who not only performed brilliantly in the pantomime but were so helpful in pulling curtains and scenery changing. We do miss having one person in charge of it all and would welcome a volunteer who could perform this role for just one week of the year.
The poster above was contributed by Alfred Clark of Ashdon School. It was one of eight which schoolchildren submitted, with Alfred's being the winning entry. The other posters are included further down the page. They are by Arthur Maynard-Smith, Tabatha Maynard-Smith, Ethan Lewis, Sapphira Lewis, Thomas Porch, Thomas Morland and Penny Lotter. We enjoyed the involvement of children from the School since we were able to have some eye-catching posters and programme covers.
If you are interested in being involved in this year's pantomime please contact us before September.
