Pantomime entertains the crowd
While not quite a full house, the opening night of Bridgetown Repertory Theatre’s pantomime drew plenty of local attention on Friday.
This year’s production was titled Trouble 07: Licensed to Panto, a modern spin on the traditional pantomime, combining a James Bond assignment with a traditional English pantomime.
Director Christine Chilvers said she was pleased with the opening night’s show.
“I was a little bit worried because the jokes are very English,” she said.
“The crowd was great, lots of feedback and I think everyone enjoyed it.
“I’m thrilled, I’m pleased that we had such a good audience and despite everything, despite COVID, despite all the bad things in the year, it’s going to end on a high note.”
After the show, younger performers eagerly signed autographs for audience members.
Rita Twigg played the part of Tom Cat and praised the audience.
“It was a great audience, plenty of heckling and interaction,” she said.
The show runs until December 13 and tickets are still available for the December 11, 12 and 13 shows.
