The gang’s all here
Panto characters gathered around a Sheringham landmark as rehearsals got underway.
The professional cast of the Little Theatre’s seasonal Snow White show arrived in town to polish their performances before curtain goes up on December 10. They posed for pictures at the Town Clock which will feature as a central piece of stage scenery that also opens up as a projection screen and reveals some other surprises.
Rehearsals mean busy and long days of trying on costumes, and working with director Nick Earnshaw to plan the action into the set and slotting the five-strong professional cast into dance routines featuring local youngsters for the first time since the pandemic.
Nick said: “The clock marks a real homecoming to welcome the community cast back to a show which revolves around a popular Sheringham landmark.”
Newly-graduated Welsh actor and singer Jemima Scott plays Snow White, with popular panto returnee Kyle Fraser as Prince Valiant. Harry Wyatt takes the dame role as Nurse Jolly Jabs, while Kit Henson is evil Queen Sherrie and Grace Pennington her sidekick Ida No.
A modern take on the traditional Grimms fairytale sees the queen battling for social media popularity, and banishing a local pop group to Sheringham Woods for getting more online hits than her.
