With a sprinkle of fairy dust and the spin of the glitter ball Christmas came to Rye. Yes it was pantomime time!
Acting Up In Rye performed Cinderella to full appreciative audiences on Friday and Saturday 25th and 26th November – see pictures on Previous Shows page.
A colourful and well designed set was the backdrop for a large beautifully costumed cast to perform their magic. Amid many “he’s behind you” and “oh no he’s not” the fairy godmother transformed a pumpkin into a coach and Cinders got her Prince not withstanding the shenanigans of the evil ugly sisters.
The show was punctuated by lively chorus numbers which were accompanied by Yvonne at the piano.
There was a number of new members in this years cast. It was delightful to see several very young people taking part and obviously enjoying the experience.
Congratulations to all involved. Happy Christmas, we will be back next year!

Thanks Sarah
