Little Hallingbury Panto Group

Productions

  We have had a few directors during our lifetime. We started with Julie O’Brien who did the first 6. Ray Wilkins directed the Cinderella in 1989, Francis Lindy  came in with Snow White and directed until Babes in the Wood in 1997 then returned in 2001 for 3 years. Bob Wells aided by Zoe Styles 1998 - 2000, Corinna Cranch 2005 - 2007. Since 2008, Julie has been back at the helm.

  Amongst our choreographers, we have had Sandra Rolph, Stella O’Shaunessy, Corinna Cranch, ‘Sid’ Perry, Sue Tonkin and Pip Lawrence.

  In the early days, Ray Dickman wrote the scripts, while his wife, Iris, was the orchestra. When she retired, her place was taken by Keith Hall, who continued until 2003. Since then Philip Hays has performed that role.

  Another important role is that of Stage Manager.  We have had Derek Foster, Richard Hood, and for many years Ralph Thompson.

  Lighting in the early days was Fred Dorman. He was replaced by Derek Foster, and then in 2006, Roger Newman has had a major part to play in organising along with Gordon Clarke.

  Sound was to begin with in the hands of Billy Rolph, Then David Lindy. Richard Hood closed of the ‘90’s and since 2000 it has been Chris Rohrer with a battery of sound effects that can be inserted with a couple of minutes notice.

  A list of our productions follows. Any underlined years have links to comments, photos or Programmes.
