The auditions are done and we now have a cast for ‘Alice in Jumble Land’ our January 2017 Pantomime. A very difficult task for the casting committee! The first rehearsal went well (see photo) You have heard of the song ‘3 wheels on my wagon’? Well here we are running through that song for the very first time. Sorry about the nude Panto horse in the photograph but we still have ‘Shergar’ to dress ?!! A huge task ahead for the production team we think?! We hope the audience will enjoy it as much as we are doing?
We were pleased that 5 new members have joined us. One of those members is 14 year old Kelsie Hall who landed the leading role as Alice. Also Simon Boston as a comedic ‘Mustapha Fortune’ along with Jade, Sharon and Mick who are playing important roles . It was also great to welcome back after three years off from the group, to study at University, Laura Thomas.
For this production two well known young brothers are taking on the directorship – Joshy Chilvers is Co Director and Ryan Chilvers is the Musical Director. Several of us older long term Pocahontas Players are now 70 years plus and late 60’s , so it is nice to see the young players putting themselves forward for these important positions.
‘Alice in Jumble Land’ has been written by the very clever and witty Jimma Race , so we are in for a good laugh! Its seems early to ask about tickets but January will soon be upon us once this month is out. Hopefully, if you came to 7 Brides for 7 Brothers , we will have the same seating arrangements, using the very successful raised seating. Tickets for these seats will be £1 extra. Tickets will be available from the first week in December. If you would like to reserve your tickets just give us a ring . Leave your telephone number . Your name will be listed and we will get back to you as soon as the tickets come hot-footed back from the printers. (Janice 01485 570402 / Jim 01485 571267)
