Horsham’s Trinity Church Players will be performing their annual pantomime at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Rushams Road, at 7.30pm on Friday, January 30; and 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday, January 31.
Leader Jane O’Sullivan said: “This years panto is Sleeping Beauty” written by a group of TCP members – The Brothers Dimm. It will have all the usual elements, a large cast, great songs, sweet throwing, colourful costumes and general mayhem. Add to that some Disney Princesses, an ageing Handel and Gretel, and a talking lamppost and you have a highly entertaining tale.”
Jane added: “Lynn Andrews and I have been putting on Trinity Church Players pantomimes for over 20 years and the group goes from strength to strength. We have a large cast of varying ages and we all work together the weekend before the show to build the stage from scratch. TCP are a really sociable group so we have lots of laughs whilst managing to entertain our local community and raise good sums for the church and various charities.
“Just before Christmas 30 of us went carol singing round the local streets and in 2 hours raised £262 for Shooting Stars CHASE - the children’s hospice. Proceeds from the pantomime will be split evenly between Street Life, a local charity supporting street children in India, and Holy Trinity Church funds.
“There will be a bar selling wine and soft drinks before each performance and at the interval. At the matinee light refreshments will also be on sale. Over the past 10 years, Trinity Church Players are proud to have raised almost £20,000 for good causes.”
Tickets are £6 for adults and £3 for children, available from 01403 268035. Tickets must be pre-booked.
