Panto tale is sim­ply wicked...

AY­OUNG cast per­formed to sell-out au­di­ences when they took to the stage in the Bolling­ton Fes­ti­val Play­ers pan­tomime.

A cast of 36 chil­dren be­tween nine and 16-years-old ap­peared in this year’s pro­duc­tion of Sleep­ing Beauty. The group – which has won Best Pan­tomime four years run­ning with the Cheshire Theatre Guild – had a busy week per­form­ing a se­ries of shows at Bolling­ton Arts Cen­tre be­fore week­end mati­nees. The panto was di­rected by Nigel Wells with co-di­rec­tion from his daugh­ter, Sa­man­tha Wells.

Jane Wells, Nigel’s wife, who runs pub­lic­ity for the panto, said: “We had an ab­so­lutely bril­liant cast who knocked the socks off the au­di­ences with amaz­ing per­for­mances, great singing, daz­zling cos­tumes and stun­ning light­ing.

“This year saw the ar­rival of a new dame in the shape of Josh Brather­ton who de­liv­ered his own Dame Dot­tie Det­tol with con­fi­dence and over-the-top dame­ness.

“The plot wound round the cas­tle, through the for­est and to the pre­dicted Prince-get-Princess end­ing, but with a twist.

“Well done cast and crew, can’t wait for the 2017 pan­tomime.”
