After the success of our pantomime, Puss in Boots, Cave Players presented their May production on Friday and Saturday 18th and 19th May at the Village Hall, North Cave and on Friday 25th May at the Eastrington Village Hall.
This year’s production was titled "The Best of British", with songs, sketches and a melodrama based on our British roots.
A good time was had by all and all the shows went very well, even if the stage did partially collapse on the 1st night.A Review
I had barely recovered from Puss In Boots, the CavePlayers’ Panto staged late January, when this enthusiastic band, surely the James Brown of Amateur Dramatics, produced a wonderful celebration of music, drama, comedy and reminiscences of much loved favourites. Covering from the war years to present day, they picked some real gems from all genres, such as Gilbert & Sullivan, Lloyd Webber, TV greats –the Two Ronnies, Victoria Wood, Joyce Grenfell. Particular favourites were Vera Lynn and an enthusiastic rendering of Right Said Fred complete with overall! Also high drama with The Fete, marital discord over the tea table, and the difficulties of purchasing a plain sandwich and cuppa in today’s multi-choice society!
A generous supper was provided, and the audience brought along their own beverages, which all contributed to a most enjoyable evening – the Players deserve the highest praise for their enthusiasm and skill; they were word perfect in some of the most complex sketches –well done!
