Panto season is upon us, and many among us will be gearing up to go
with large groups of family and friendly to see vaguely famous people
make fools of themselves in too much make-up. But before you start
rushing off to the box office, I'd like to plug a couple of smaller,
local offerings - if 'local' can also mean 'where I used to live.' In my next post I'll talk about Broadclyst Theatre Group, but for now I'd like to head north to Warkworth in Northumberland.
Before I moved down to Devon, I was an active member of Warkworth Drama Group in Northumberland. I performed in two of their pantomimes, playing the hero Tom-Tom in Goldilocks & the Three Bears and the villain Zendave in Sleeping Beauty (which was much more fun). This year my old friends are taking on Mother Goose, and it promises to be entertaining.
