Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

Pan­tomime au­di­ences at the The­atre Royal Bath have raised £4,400 to be split be­tween four char­i­ties. Col­lec­tions were made over seven days dur­ing Christ­mas week – from Sun­day, De­cem­ber 23, to Sun­day De­cem­ber 30 – by the the­atre’s front of house staff and vol­un­teers af­ter per­for­mances of Peter Pan. Star Paul Ni­cholas, who plays Cap­tain Hook and Mr Dar­ling in the pan­tomime; Re­becca Wheat­ley, well known to TV view­ers for her role in Ca­su­alty and who plays Mer­maid Per­sil and Mrs Dar­ling in the panto; Tim Ed­wards who plays the ti­tle role of Peter Pan and Rachel Grundy who plays Tinker Bell joined mem­bers of the The­atre Royal’s front of house team to cel­e­brate the do­na­tions. Ac­tress Re­becca Wheat­ley said: “Thank you to ev­ery­one who made a con­tri­bu­tion dur­ing Char­i­ties Week at the The­atre Royal. We are so proud to hand over this fan­tas­tic sum of money raised by our gen­er­ous pan­tomime au­di­ences to four bril­liant char­i­ties “Your kind­ness will help each of these vi­tal good causes as they con­tinue to pro­vide much needed sup­port in the lo­cal com­mu­nity in 2019.” The sum will be di­vided equally be­tween the Bath and District MS So­ci­ety, Men­tor­ing Plus, St. John Am­bu­lance and The For­ever Friends Ap­peal. The Peter Pan pan­tomime runs at the The­atre Royal Bath un­til Sun­day.
