We are, at the moment,discussing our annual pantomime and whilst we dearly wish to continue with this very popular Loddon tradition we are concerned we will have too few adult cast members for our January production.
Anyone who has a desire to “tread the boards” will be very welcome. Experience is not a necessity. All we ask of you is enthusiasm and some of your time to help us to continue to entertain your families.
