The spring production of 'Last of the Red Hot Lovers' directed by Sandra King was a great success, thoroughly enjoyed by enthusiastic audiences and received an excellent NODA review. Well done team!

We are thrilled to announce that our festival production 'The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish' by David Tristram, came a very close runner up with just one point dividing us and the winning team from Woking.

Out of eleven entries, we thought it was a great result. Not only did we get the NDFA Council Trophy for runner up but also the John Scowen Award for Comedy and the Audience Appreciation award when all audience members who bought season tickets get to vote on their favourite production of the week. Thanks to all members and friends who supported us during this festival period.

Cinderella (Phillips)

'Cinderella' - the most famous pantomime of them all!

The classic rags to riches story. Cinderella lives a life of drudgery, bullied by her horrible Ugly Sisters, Grizelda and Alopecia, and her wicked step mother Lucretia. Her muddled and confused father, Baron Hardup is powerless to intervene (he’s more scared of them than she is!) and her only comfort is her pal Buttons.

Prince Charming is holding a ball to meet his bride to be. Can this be the chance that Cinders has been waiting for? Despite the best efforts of her wicked step mother and her two malicious Ugly Sisters, Cinderella shall go to the ball with the help of her magical Fairy Godmother!

Written by Keith Phillips and with the usual blend of singalong tunes and classic panto humour, the Players sprinkle the audiences with fairy dust and transports them into the magical world of pantomime.
