Panto planning goes on line? You’re having a laugh!

19th June 2020

So what’s planned for panto this year at Sheringham Little Theatre this year?

Watch this video, and you’ll be… none the wiser.

But hopefully you’ll have a laugh and catch up with some of your favourite actors and characters.

It’s a chance to eavesdrop on an online panto planning meeting – which is laced with all the things you’d expect from the Little Theatre’s annual helping of festive fun –  gags, nonsense, song, special effects sweet throwing, catchphrases, cheering children and even a brief appearance of a baddie (boooooo!)

It features stars from last year’s show:  Kyle Fraser (Dick Whittington), Harry Williams (The Cat), Danniella Schindler (Alice Fitzwarren), Nick Earnshaw (director and dame Sarah the Cook), and Kit Henson (Queen Rat).

And make sure you play to the very end for a special appearance by Rik Warren as … well wait and see.

Decisions about this year’s panto are still pending, while the coronavirus social distancing impacts for theatres later in the year remain unclear.

But of course, being a panto, there will eventually be a happy ending.
