Our last production was ‘Aladdin’ in 2019. With two Genies, a camel, our Dame Wooshy Washy, Albert and Cuthbert the delivery men from England attempting to deliver a sedan chair for the princess. And many other characters who made this production such great fun. Again the hall was packed for all three performances.
We performed our 2018 pantomime ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ to three packed houses. Audiences were in hysterics and can’t wait to see our next production. My favourites were the two Tax Inspectors.
‘Snow White’ was our 2017 offering. Seven very sweet dwarfs and one very nasty evil Queen. And of course two singing and dancing trees. The two dimwits B and Q, fumbled their way through trying to save Snow White but even ‘Plan C’ failed.
And our 2016 production ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ was another great success. Daisy the cow won all our hearts. The Traffic Warden made everyone’s life difficult, issuing parking tickets if you stood still too long. We were very lucky to have ‘That’s Solent TV’ film our dress rehearsal which was shown on TV.
Our pantomime ‘Hansel and Gretel’ was performed at Chilworth Village Hall, in February 2015. We all loved the appearance of ‘Batman and Robin’ the heroes who found Hansel and Gretel in the gingerbread cottage. The cast and audiences had such fun we decided to continue putting on pantomimes every February
We perform original scripts written by Rachel Chadwick, who lives locally in Rownhams.
Having received excellent reviews for all our pantomimes. We are now rehearsing ‘Sleeping Beauty’ for February 2020. Our own adaptation based on The Grimm Brothers fairy tale.
During the summer of 2015 Chilworth hall was updated, adding much needed lighting and sound systems. And the group was granted a Community grant by TVBC which helped pay for additional sound equipment. And also in 2018 they helped us again, we needed a new electronic keyboard.
We always welcome new faces whether your interest is performing, helping back stage or front of house. Or if you would like to sponsor us we will advertise your business in our programme.
We consist of family and friends with the same vision – putting on a successful production for the local community, whilst having fun. We are a group that work together and support each other throughout the show and enjoy meeting up each week.
We meet Wednesday evenings between 7.30 and 9.30pm. September to February. Please contact me for details. And from January we rehearse on Sundays too.
