January 2016 ~ Social Night out at the Panto

By

On a very cold and wet evening in January, where do you go for a social night out?

Chester Deva Rotarians, Partners and friends decided that the seasonal Pantomime “Cinderella” at the Clwyd Theatre, Mold, was the place to go.

This Pantomime “Cinderella” proved to be full of family entertainment, slapstick comedy, lots of laughs mingled with rock’n’roll hit songs and dancing. From the start the audience were involved dodging water spray emanating from the stage “Magic Well”, singing along with the cast, then involved with Panto shouts of “He’s behind you” and “Booing” the evil Stepmother Rubella De Zees (Amy Penston).

Throughout the show the multi-talented cast showed their versatility by playing all the music on guitars, keyboards, saxophones, flutes and drums whilst also singing and dancing during the show. The “Cinderella” story was narrated by the Fairy Godmother (Linsey Goodband), but the best links were given by Buttons (James Haggie) who kept us smiling with his squeaky voice and lovable character, then busting into song to show his star quality.

Of course the spirited Cinders(Nicola Martinus Smith) eventually got her Prince(Joe Vetch) and We all came away still smiling after such an enjoyable evening of entertainment.
