Panto Success - Both on and off Stage
The latest performance
by Hethersett Pantomime Group proved successful both on and off stage.
Robin Hood and His
Merry Men was the first show written by cast member Lloyd Parfitt and has
earned praise from stalwart Duncan Pigg who wrote and produced the village
panto for 40 years and who is now chairman of the Hethersett Pantomime Group.
“Having written and
produced the show for over 40 years I am well aware of the time and work it
requires and it is a great credit to everyone that the new era has started
with such a great show,” Mr Pigg said.
This year’s show
also raised over £6100 for charity and local organisations. An end of show
bucket collection raised £2,100 for the Advanced Medical Response Unit. Other donations were made to Multiple Sclerosis Research (£700),
Hethersett Jubilee Youth Club for games equipment (£700), Friends of
Hethersett High School (£700), Hethersett St Remigius Church Repair Fund (£350),
Hethersett Methodist Church (£350), Little Melton Church (£350), Great
Melton Church (£350), Wymondham Roman Catholic Church (£350) and
Ketteringham Church (£200).
In the past 41 years
the pantomime group has donated over £71,000 to various organisations and
