And now our show is done

…Dick and Tommy clearly won, Queen rat she was defeated, By a tiger she was eated.

Dick Whittington and his Cat was a “roaring” success.  We played to full houses for each performance, which I do believe is a first for BaCStage.  Pantos are a major undertaking (which is why we only put one on every other year) and DW was no exception – rehearsals started all the way back in September.  We had no less than thirteen junior cast members, which I also think is a first, and each one played their part splendidly (the oldies were pretty good too).  As well as the youngsters, their parents also played a vital role in making the show a success.  Carol summed it up perfectly:

“A huge ‘thank you’ to all the parents who have supported us throughout the rehearsal period and who gave us practical help – both behind the scenes and front of house – during Production Week.  Your input made a significant contribution to the success of this year’s pantomime and, quite simply, we couldn’t have done it without you. We’ve all had a great week and we hope that you did too.”

We’d also like to say a special ‘thank you’ to Jas for once again providing transport to and from the Village Hall.

Lastly, but by no means leastly, we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along to see a performance.  If you enjoyed watching the show half as much as we enjoyed putting it together then you’ll have had a lot of fun!

I will be posting photos of the show on the website soon.  As a taster, here is a picture of our special Saturday night guest star, Alan:

AlanThis is what happens when (a) you sit in the front row at a pantomime, (b) you wolf-whistle the dame and (c) the dame sees you wolf-whistling.

In case you’re wondering, Alan is the one on the right.
