Club Members and Guests were recently ‘treated’ to a spectacular version of Cinderella the Panto. Laughter, singing, booing (mostly in the right places) and much ‘It’s behind you’ ensured that everyone had a memorable evening (and the cast and crew quite enjoyed it too!)

Particular and special thanks go to Sue King for writing the Panto, for most of the scenery, Directing the show and for taking on the role of wicked stepmother Lady Ladybird.

The Critics commend:

Mary Buck for her wonderful performance as Cinderella (how did you manage to learn all those words and have 2 costume changes?!)

Terry Buck and Ken Morgan for clearly fulfilling their fantasies with very funny and entertaining renditions  of the Ugly Sisters

Gill Bryceson for not only narrating, but for late stand-in performances as Dick and Fanny

Graham Smooker for his inimitable sighing and fantastic Buttons costume

Peter Davies for his sneezing and jigging as Baron Hardup

Judy Smooker and Val Northam as Fairies Snowdroop and Liquid for their Fiddle Faddling

Nadine Evans as a Bellydancing Dandini

Heather Tainsh for being the Panto Prince hero

Tony Finch as Tom ( ‘He’s behind you’ )

Hilary Davies for stunning costumes and rehearsal support and to Marita Morgan for music and sometime stand in.

Oh, and the fish n chips weren’t bad either!


Just a January Giggle

Dave Thomas wanted to share some Bowls Cartoons with us. He’s not saying who they remind him of, but the Website team have a few ideas we will share when the Bowlers Arms is next open for business!

Thank you Dave. We have kept the other cartoons for another time!
