Stockcross Panto Players
We are an amateur theatre group based in the village of Stockcross. Formed in 2007 we produce and perform an annual pantomime in the Sutton Hall . Keen to bring a community based village panto to the stage – our first panto (Cinderella) was the brainchild of local resident Jason Palmer. Always fun and entertaining for audiences, cast and crew, our performances raise funds for village events and hall maintenance.
Anyone from the village and surrounding area is welcome to join us – no previous experience needed though a sense of humour helps. Young, old and everyone in between – all are welcome and there are many ways to get involved … from stage design and creation, make-up and costumes, production and of course treading the boards if you want to have a go at acting.
We have cast and crew join us for one year – and others who have stayed for several. We have seen cast members start in the chorus and build confidence to take lead parts and crew move from behind the scenes to the stage and back again.
We are a supportive and friendly bunch, so get in touch if you’d like to hear more or find out how you can get involved in future performances. We start planning the pantomime in June, rehearsals start in September and we perform three nights at the start of December.
Past performances have included: Cinderella, Jack & the Beanstalk, Aladdin, Snow White, The Ice Queen, Dick Whittington, Alice the Panto, Wicked Witches of Oz, Buttons, Treasure Island, Puss in Boots, The Good, The Bad & the Panto, Bah Humbug. And in 2022, the panto players returned in Dick Turpin.
