If you were wondering if there’s singing, dancing and jokes aplenty in Hunstanton Festival Players latest panto, the answer is “oh yes there is!”

The amateur group performed to around 1,200 people across the six shows of its previous pantomime and is hoping to keep up that level of success with The Frog Prince.

Tony Bishopp, who plays the king, said: “It’s fun for all the family. It’s a traditional pantomime even though its not the title you might expect. There’s singing, dancing and jokes and we have become quite famous for our ultra violet scenes.”

The 28-strong cast, which includes three generations of Mr Bishopp’s family, is made up of people from in and around Hunstanton. Joining Mr Bishopp on stage will be his daughter Liz Bishopp, 25, and granddaughter Elise Navarro, aged eight.

The pantomime is written and directed by John Giller, of West Norfolk based John Giller Dancing and Theatre Academy. Mr Giller also stars as Nurse Kitty Litter.

Other stars include Smithdon high School pupils Chloe Huggett, 15, as the frog prince and Emilie Darby, 17, as Princess Sybille.

The panto is on at Hunstanton Town Hall from Friday, December 27 to Monday, December 30. Evening performances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday begin at 7.30pm. Matinees at 2.30pm every day except Friday.

Adults £7.50, children and concessions £5. All children get a goody bag. Contact: 01485 532610
