Oh No It Isn’t, Oh Yes It Is!

Panto cast

Baron Hardup and Lady Ladybird

Cinders and her Ugly Sisters

Cinders and Buttons

Fairy Liquid and Fairy Snowdroop

Dandini and Prince Charming

Dick and Tom

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!

Capers in Calpe

Calpe in Spain beckoned Club members at the end of the season. You will be able to read more about it in the December Purbeck Gazette, but we thought we’d share a photo of them all in their whites and ready to take on the Greens of sunny Calpe. There are a few stories of capers and cavorting; Let’s just say Steve and Barrie learnt a whisky lesson and Julie and Pat know a bit more about Spanish cocktails!
