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. 
 
Snow White runs from December 10 to 31. Tickets and more information at www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com or call the box office on 01263 822347.

    The volunteer crew at Sheringham have received a cheque for £1000 from the managers & owner of The Two Lifeboats.

    On Sunday 29th January the managers of the Two Lifeboats public house Sheringham, Stephan & Anna Marriott, presented Sheringham lifeboat crew with a cheque for £1000.

    Owner of the Two Lifeboats, Tim Joudrey said “We decided to choose the local RLNI as our main local charity as I and my recently deceased Uncle were regularly sailing together originally, on the solent and in the last 20 years on the Norfolk coast.

  • Seaside theatre prepares to reveal revamped cafe

    A new-look Hub café is taking shape behind the blacked-out windows of Sheringham Little Theatre. The venue has been closed all January for a major revamp of its foyer and the café which is a vital income generator to support its arts programming.

    When the curtain goes up on the £85,000 project visitors will see a freshened up café with new flooring, ceilings, lights, heating and revived tables and chairs.

    The toilets are getting new lighting and hand driers – and the whole building is getting LED lighting, a front door porch and window film to make it more energy efficient and help make its rising power bills more manageable. 

    People walking past after dark will have already noticed colourful new lighting on the fascia boards. 

  • Wardrobe sale will fashion funds for Little Theatre

    A community wardrobe is selling off some of its spare clothes to help raise funds for Sheringham Little Theatre.

    Rails of items will be on sale at the theatre on Sunday July 17 from 11am to 3pm at a free-to-enter event. 

    Sadly a fashion show planned for the Friday night, July 15, has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. 

    But the sale is still going ahead on the Sunday featuring vintage, retro and modern items including evening and day dresses, coats and men’s suits, along with some uniform pieces, fancy dress, fabrics and haberdashery, and accessories such as gloves, hats and wigs. 

  • Sea Life - A Festival of Marine
     

    The wonders of the sea will be celebrated in a brand new marine film festival heading to North Norfolk in July.

    A one-day series of films on July 8 is the brainchild of sea-loving local photographer and film-maker Chris Taylor from Sheringham.

    The festival at Sheringham Little Theatre features a Bafta-nominated 2021 movie Becoming Cousteau, which tells the story of famous explorer and environmentalist Jacques Cousteau's life.

    Screenings also include locally-made short films including Beachcombing by Hunstanton-based filmmaker Pete Naylor which features a poem read by acclaimed Silent Witness actress Emilia Fox. And there is work by Chris himself, including films about the north Norfolk sailing barge Juno, the life of a modern day fisherman Henry Randell, and some stunning footage of the rich wildlife on the chalk reef just a stone's throw from the Sheringham shoreline.

  • Youth musical group returns to Sheringham stage after two-year gap

    A feel-good show of stage song and dance favourites is set to be performed by a troupe of talented young performers at Sheringham Little Theatre.

    A Celebration of Musical Theatre, running from April 14-16 at 7.30pm nightly, will see a cast aged eight to 16 showcase their stage skills.

    They are excited and eager to step back into the limelight for the first time in two years, after the traditional Easter musical Guys and Dolls was postponed and then cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. 

    But the youngsters are aiming to come back with a bang with an hour-long show that will include hits from classic shows, including Guys and Dolls, as well as an introduction to some newer productions.
