Panto 2019 - Babes In The Wood
It’s that time of year again! Panto time! Oh no it isn’t…! Now that Easter is over, let’s focus on Christmas! (After all, Summer came and went with Easter).
This year’s Priory panto extravaganza is “Babes in the Wood”. A magical tale of love, betrayal, evil uncles, bumbling fairies, a bear, a witch and a gingerbread house. With a sprinkle of two failed Morris Dancers (who have absolutely no idea what show they’re in) you’ve got all the ingredients for yet another bonkers pantomime adventure!!
We are now looking for a fun loving cast – and it could be you! In addition, we are looking for an exciting and vibrant junior chorus who will have the opportunity to play several cameo roles… Have you ever done panto before? Then come and do another! Never done a panto in your life?? Well what are you waiting for?!?!
