St Wilfrid’s Players were proud to present their pantomime, ‘Seven Dwarfs in the Seven Hills’ recently at the Mother of God Parish Centre, Sheffield.
The Centre for homeless and vulnerable people run a drama group every week and have fourteen committed members. Together with their drama tutor, Rachel Wood, who encouraged everyone to bring their ideas and suggestions to the group, the clients put together the plot and gradually ‘Seven Dwarfs in the Seven Hills was created.
This year’s show, based on what the dwarfs got up to after Snow White had gone off to get married, was full of comedic moments and showed the characters of the cast at their very best. The performances were, as every year, bright and colourful with lots of singing and dancing. Enthusiastic audience participation really made the whole experience for the cast a memorable one.
St Wilfrid’s Centre Director, Josie Brooks, opened the event with an entertaining version of ‘The Little List Song’ from the opera ‘Mikado’. In the song Josie gave her observations of her first few months at the Centre, accompanied by Terry Scully, the multitalented Finance Officer, (pictured below).
Josie said of her first experience of St Wilfrid’s pantomime, “The performance was great, full of laughter and camaraderie and obvious enjoyment amongst the cast. Clients, volunteers and staff worked very hard, particularly in the week building up to the show. Very well done everyone!”
The pantomime raised over £800 for the Centre. Thank you to all who supported the event.
