The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

SPARKLE and magic was on the agenda as the Mayor of Peter­bor­ough went to a com­mu­nity panto.

Cllr Paulathacker at­tended the fi­nal night of Puss In Boots at the Honey­hill Chil­dren’s Cen­tre, in Chad­burn, Pas­ton on Wed­nes­day.

It was the last of three per­for­mances of the an­nual pan­tomime which fea­tured staff mem­bers from the cen­tre and lo­cal res­i­dents.

The pro­duc­tion also fea­tured a group of 15 chil­dren singing in the cho­rus.

Cllr Thacker, who was joined by her con­sort Cllr Ray Dobbs, turned out to show her sup­port, meet­ing mem­bers of the cast be­fore the per­form- ance.

She said: “It was very good and very en­ter­tain­ing. It was funny and the cos­tumes were beau­ti­ful.

“I couldn’t pick any one per­son out as the best be­cause they were all good and en­ter­tain­ing in what they did.”

Speak­ing dur­ing the prepa­ra­tions be­fore the first per­for­mance, Ja­son Wilson, the chil­dren’s cen­tre co-or­di­na­tor, said: “We al­ways look for­ward to our an­nual com­mu­nity pan­tomime and lo­cal res­i­dents have been work­ing re­ally hard to pre­pare for it by help­ing to paint scenery and make cos­tumes as well as work­ing on dance rou­tines, prac­tis­ing songs and learn­ing their lines.
