Willingdon Church Players



Plans for our next pantomime are well under way and Alex has been busy on the script for ‘Sleeping Beauty – with a twist!’. See below the list of characters. Mike would like to hold the read-through on Monday 10 September and informal auditions on Thursday 13 September each from 7.00pm. Due to time constraints there will be only one session of each and rehearsals will begin on Thursday 20 September from 7.00pm.   Please get in touch if you are unable to attend one/any of these evenings but would like to take part. We have jumped through a few hoops, and people have had arms twisted, for us to produce another pantomime so we do need all your support in any way you can help.

Willingdon Church Players Pantomime 2018

Willingdon Church Players is an enthusiastic group that has performed a Pantomime in January for the past fifty years. 

Against all the odds, with most of the cast and crew being struck down by winter flu and colds  etc our 50th panto, ‘Cinderella’, was another resounding success, playing to full houses at the performances during January. 

Watch this space for news of next year, but............... we really do need some younger people coming forward. If you don’t want to ‘tread the boards’ there are so many other important jobs to do and it would be great to have new blood, ideas and energy. Please do get in touch.
