This year’s Buildwas Players Pantomime has raised over a thousand pounds for a cancer charity. Performances of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ in February were very well received, with tickets selling out.
The Players’ Nigel Bowen says, “This year, we raised £1,100 for the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, which has been working since 1979 to improve cancer care facilities in Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales.
“A big ‘thank you’ to our cast, backstage crew and all our supporters for all their hard work and dedication over the past few months – we now have a variety of members from local villages and have had a lot of fun and laughs along the way. We’re already having a script written for our next production, which will be ‘Ali Baba’.
“If you’re interested in taking part in next year’s panto, either as cast or crew, please find us on Facebook – we’re a friendly bunch and welcome newcomers! We start rehearsing again in September (every Tuesday night in Buildwas Village Hall) and will perform in February 2020.”
