The Deadwood Stage Company takes the adult panto route

Saucy panto delights

SINCE the success of their last production May – Granma Mia – the Deadwood Stage Company certainly haven’t been sitting on their front stalls. 

Under the direction of David Whitney, they’re looking ahead and planning their latest theatrical venture which promises to be a show to remember. The next project is entitled Cinder-Hella which is a two-act comedy ‘panto’ written by David himself and more suited to an adult audience. The initial read through has already prompted much hilarity and looks set to be a happy and fun filled set of rehearsals.

David Whitney has over fifty years of amateur stage experience under his belt, as actor, director and writer and is looking forward to the challenge of working with a new drama group. The comedy play, has elements of panto, with costumes, music and audience participation but David is keen to stress that it is not a ‘pantomime’ but a theatrical entertainment, filled with double entendres and adult humour.

No date has been set for the production but it is sure to be one ‘Hella’ of a rehearsal getting there!

With a couple of parts still in the offing the Deadwood Stage Company are seeking new members, both acting and non acting. This very friendly group meet every Wednesday afternoon from 3pm to 5pm at The Porter House Bar in the Rioja Centre which is located near to Villamartin.

If you can help this charity-giving group in any capacity – either on, back or front of the stage – please contact the secretary, Mrs Vida Nelson, on 966 774 127.
