Ambitious project for drama group

February 26 2020

A POPULAR drama group are taking on an ambitious project for their annual panto but promise to step up to the mark.

Soundwell-based St Stephen's drama group are busy rehearsing Little Miss Muffet, a family show featuring sing-a-long tunes to get your feet tapping.

The show sees heroine Little Miss Muffet, with the help of her aunt Dame Dolly Drinkup, join the handsome Captain Jack Dauntless to rescue a princess and defeat the evil witch, Morac.

Producer Kate Kendell said: “I’ve wanted to do this panto for years but we’ve never been ready for it as it’s very ambitious. Now though, I feel that the group has gained so much experience and talent that we are more than ready to do this justice.”

The panto boasts some intricate dance moves which has thrown up a few challenges.

Samantha Vernon, the panto’s choreographer, said: “I have developed some quite complicated dance routines and the group has quite literally stepped up to the mark. Our chorus this year have been amazing and really thrown themselves into this with gusto and have made each routine their own.”

Little Miss Muffet runs from January 30 – February1, 2020, with shows at 7.30pm and a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm, at St Stephen’s Church Hall, Church Road, Soundwell, Bristol, BS16 4RH. There will be refreshments and raffle during the interval. Tickets are £8 for adults and £6 for concessions.
