Pantomine at Staincross

Home » News » Pantomine at Staincross

Staincross Methodist Church has its own version of the Von Trapp family, made famous by "The Sound of Music".
Father, son and five grandchildren were featured in the cast of this year's pantomime, Red Riding Hood — and a sixth grandchild has arrived on the scene since then!
Father Keith Lodge was the producer of the latest production by the Church's Drama Group, and other family members on stage were son Chris, granddaughters Eve, Claire, Molly-Mae, Georgia and Daisy.
In addition, Keith's brother-in-law played the Dame and sister Sheila, who wrote the script, was also director, as well as taking one of the smaller parts.
In other words the title 'family show' could not have been more apt.
Sheila is currently in the process of writing an original script for next year's production, 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', and the Group would welcome more people, young and not so young, either to take a role on stage or to help behind the scenes.
The Group has been staging pantomimes for the last twelve years , and during that time the age of the performers has ranged from four to veterans in their eighties. It really is a wonderful way to bring all age groups working together and having fun at the same time.
Proceeds — Always in excess of £1,000 over the two nights — are shared between the church and local charities.
