It’s Utterly Panto Written By Rachel Feeny-Williams

19-21 February 2015
Perran-ar-worthal Village Hall

“It’s Utterly Panto” written by Rachel Feeny-Williams was staged in February 2015.

A brand new pantomime that contained many of our favourite fairy-tale characters.

With a colourful array of costumes, popular songs and all the elements of a traditional pantomime, this production was thoroughly enjoyed by audience members of all ages.

“When Goatel (Gretal) appeared I was completely in panto world” “Rapunzel and the nits had me laughing out loud” “completely brilliant” and “the best panto ever” were just some of the many, many favourable comments received.

Princess Pavillion, Falmouth

Written by Evie Payne.

Our buckles were swashed as Captain Hook and his buccaneering buffoons attempted to defeat Peter Pan once and for all.

Did man eater, Ms Croc O’Diall spoil Hook’s plans?

Would a stroppy teenage Tinkerbell be bothered to sprinkle her fairy dust?

A modern script but full of traditional pantomime elements Neverland and Back provided fun for all ages.

Oh yes it did!

Princess Pavillion, Falmouth

This was our first outing to Princess Paviion in Falmouth and we were all very excited about performing “Cinderella”, a traditional pantomime for all the family.

Those who came along joined in with all their favourite characters as this magical fairy-tale unfolded with fun and laughter.

You could only admire our youngsters as they performed to rocking music that got everyone jiggling in their seats and were amazed as the fairies work ‘a kind of magic’ to ensure Cinders got to the ball.

Tradition dictated a happy ending but just who would marry who? February used to be a dull month but not anymore, Panto was back in town.

Jack the Giant Killer

Jack the Giant Killer

by David Ivall

February 2012

Perranwell in the Dark Ages…
The Dark Ages were that period of history that fell between the Romans and the Normans (the bit they always missed out at school), when the Kings of Cornwall lived in Perranwell. That is why the pub is called the Royal Oak, of course, and the royal palace was about where the post office is now.

If your reaction is to say at once ‘Oh, no, it wasn’t’, there will be a rousing chorus of ‘Oh, yes, it was!’, because we are in the world of this year’s village pantomime. Jack the Giant Killer is based on the old Cornish legend of the brave lad who slew Giant Cormoran and Giant Blunderbore. In our version there is rather less slaying and rather more interest in the fate of the village pasty shop, driven into bankruptcy under the old-fashioned Mrs Goongumpus and revived by the progressive Perran and Worthal.

We’ll give to you a thrilling glimpse
Of piskies, giants and naughty imps.
We’ll teach you how to make a pasty
And how to deal with villains nasty.

Jack the Giant Killer has been written by David Ivall, who has been associated with Perranwell for over thirty years. We hope everyone in the village and surrounding area will come along to discover more about its (slightly fictionalised) history. Just think; this could be your only chance to attend a theatrical world première!

25-29 January 2011

The 41st Pantomime production for our drama group was Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs. A traditional family pantomime full of fun, laughs, music, dance & spectacle.

Our talented group enthralled us with the story of Snow White, and allowed our younger members to be part of the cast as the seven dwarfs. You were definately “Happy” and Brainy”, when you came to see this production and would have been “Grumpy” & “Dopey” to have missed it!!

Those dull January evenings were brightened as we saw “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” at Perranarworthal Memorial Hall, 25th – 29th January 2011.

27-30 January 2010

To celebrate its 40th anniversary Carnon Downs Drama Group is restaging Dick Whittington and His Cat, the pantomime we first performed in 1970.

Can there be anyone who has not heard the tale of the boy who went looking for streets paved with gold in London and who, when he discovered the truth, started to return home only to hear the Bow Bells ring out ‘Turn again Whittington, thrice Lord Mayor of London’?

But does everyone know that he was a real person who in 1397 really did become Lord Mayor and married Alice daughter of Alderman Fitzwarren? (In fact he was Lord Mayor 4 times but let’s not spoil the story!)

People came to Perranwell Village Hall to discover how it all ended happily ever after….
