On Friday 17th January 2020 a party of 30 boarded a coach at Whitley Village Hall to take our annual trip to theatre Clwyd. We include husbands, family friends on this event and it was good to have members of Dutton WI join us again this year too.
Jack and the beanstalk was this year’s show and Dame Tegwen Trott was played by Phillip Harris. His 13th performance at the theatre. His costumes were amazing, and he changed on numerous occasions into dresses that were described as ‘bonkers’ by the local press.
The cast of nine people were very talented; they could sing and play multiple instruments. The slap stick humour, sparkling set and puppets provided a evening of fun. We all left the theatre with smiley faces.
Next year’s panto is Puss in Boots and tickets are already on sale so watch this space.
