It’s that time of year again – oh no it isn’t – oh yes it is! Trinity Church Players will be performing their annual pantomime at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Rushams Road at 7.30pm on Friday 24 January; and 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday the 25 January.
This year’s panto is Goldilocks and the Three Little Pigs, written by TCP members, The Brothers Dimm. It will have all the usual elements, a large cast; great songs; sweet throwing, colourful costumes and general mayhem. As always, TCP have added their own particular style and twists to the traditional story. One thing is for sure, you’ll have a good laugh.
Director Tom Hounsham said: “It’s been great watching everyone of all ages working so hard, and having so much fun creating the usual TCP mayhem. What a great way to raise money for good causes”.
As well as entertaining their local community, TCP gives away as much money as possible to the church and charities. In the last 10 years alone they have raised almost £31,000 for good causes. Half of the panto proceeds are given to Holy Trinity and the other half donated to charity. This year, donations will be made to St Catherine’s Hospice and Colitis UK, in memory of TCP member Frances Douglas.
Tickets are £7 for adults and £3 for children (under 13), available from 01403 268035. Saturday evening has almost sold, out so book quickly to avoid disappointment. Tickets must be pre-booked. There will be a bar selling wine, soft drinks and cakes before each performance and at the interval. Tea and coffee are also available at the matinee.
