Panto team celebrate latest show's successful run
Published on: 06 Feb 2014
The cast and crew of Fry Club Panto are celebrating the “spectacular” success of their latest stage show.
The group staged Babes in the Wood for a five-night run, with matinees, at Broadlands Academy in Keynsham from January 29.
Director Louise Smee said: “It was a fun show with lots of laughs and there was a particularly funny moment when our dame Tilly showed her drawers, which she had filched from a local cycling group.
“The highlight for me was seeing the local Mencap club cheer their friend on the stage during the walk-down as well as having so many local Scouts, Guides, Brownies and Cubs there. It was great to see them all enjoy themselves.”
The annual show draws its cast and crew from the local community and provides a traditional pantomime aimed at the whole family.
Even though this year’s run has only just finished, Louise said the group was already looking ahead to 2015’s production.
“We will be looking at scripts in the next few weeks and auditions will be in early October,” she said.
“But for now we look forward to the panto party next week.”
