Pantomime brings a new take on traditional format
Bridgetown Repertory Theatre’s annual pantomime is due to launch on December 4.
This year’s show is called Trouble 07: Licensed to Panto, and bills itself as a combination of James Bond and Dick Whittington.
Director Christine Chilvers said the show offered something different to traditional fairy tales.
“I’ve managed to find a panto that is a little bit different from the traditional fairy tale, good guy bad guy, so it has a bit of a take on something slightly different,” she said.
“It’s a fun panto and there are songs that people will know and will be able to sing along to and some that they won’t have heard before, I’m so so glad that we can do it.
Mrs Chilvers said the shorter run time made it suitable for children.
“It’s quite a short panto this one, relatively speaking, the first half runs for just about an hour and the second half is much shorter, under three quarters of an hour, so it’s really suitable for children,” she said.
A cast and crew of 30 people are working on putting the show together and Mrs Chilvers praised the work of everyone involved in putting on the show.
“Once again the cast and the crew have just absolutely pulled together, so it’s totally a group effort.”
The show will be on at 7.30pm on December 4, 5, 11 and 12, and 2pm on December 6 and 13.
