This year’s pantomime was put on by the Culcheth Players and Rosemary Powell’s school of dance. Lucy Fillery-Brown, Emma Hind, Katie Tanner, Sophie Tanner, Lucy Driver, Benedict Percival and Emily Tickle are students from Years 8, 9 and 10 who took part in Snow White. They did four shows (one on Friday 15th, two on Saturday 16th and one on Sunday 17th February) and each one had a unique crowd with children and adults enjoying the show. The dancers performed to songs like ‘All of Me’ (John Legend) and ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ (Hairspray) also the actors did comedy and dramatic scenes. Lucy Fillery-Brown and Sophie Tanner played the part of dwarfs, Lucy as Doc and Sophie as Bashful and Benedict Percival as Danny Dumpling.
Rehearsals for the dancers and actors were separate. The dancers would rehearse every Saturday and the actors would rehearse every Monday and Thursday. It took them 5-6 weeks to get the pantomime ready for the audience to see.
We really enjoyed the experience and are excited to be doing it again next year. We also enjoy collaborating with The Culcheth Players Drama Group. We can’t wait to find out the costumes and dances for next year’s pantomime.
