Following their successful production of The Sound of Music in February 2020 just before the first lockdown, Hatherleigh Players are excited and delighted to be putting on a traditional pantomime Puss in Boots next week.
Long and serious discussions were had as to how the players could make their rehearsals and rehearsal space as safe as possible with the covid variant Omicron affecting many people in the community.
Hatherleigh Players wrote a covid policy which ensured that each member had been vaccinated and was prepared to take lateral flow tests regularly.
The cast were able to practice in the well-ventilated Hatherleigh Community Centre and although one or two young players did get covid they were still able to rehearse regularly.
The team has been directed by Cindy-Jane Squire who continues her series of highly successful shows. She has been assisted by her right hand women Donna Lewis and Jane Francis who can turn their hand to absolutely anything from choreography to cups of much needed coffee.
The musical side has been led by Christine Cleverdon, and Steve Brock and Garry Bater have worked hard on the set design and construction.
Mandy Wonnacott turned out some truly beautiful costumes for the cast along with the very talented Cindy.
The commitee expressed a huge thank you to everyone who has helped put on the show.
’So the costumes are made, the lines have been learnt, the songs and dances have been practised, the stage has been set and now we await our audience!,’ they said.
’Do come and see this well-known tale played out again with a cast ranging in age from 10 to â?¦.well we’d better not say!’
There will be four performances in Hatherleigh Community Centre from Thursday, February 24 to Saturday, February 26 which includes a Saturday matinee.
It’s a show for the whole family. For more information contact 01837 810239.
