De Caversmill Theatre company are proud to finally release what there panto for 2015/2016 will be.....
It is one of the company's favorite Pantomimes
We performed it at the Mitchell Memorial Theatre 2006.
There are not many theatre Companie's that take on this version as it is a challenge to perform. Alan Frayn the writer has recently updated it for us.
Audition Date is to be set very soon, but i feel that it will be one of our biggest casts ever.
JACK: Bright, plucky, confident young man. (Usually played by female as Principal Boy, but can be played by male)
Dame Dotty Dimple: Typical pantomime Dame character – Jack’s long-suffering mother, a poor dairy farmer. (Obviously, best played by a man)
Simple SIMON: Jack’s daft brother, as obvious. (Usually a youngish-looking male, but could be played by female)
Piccalilli: Immortal – typical Wicked Witch character, but slightly tongue-in-cheek. (Female)
Fairy Sugardust: Immortal – typical good Fairy character. (Female)
Rancid the Ratman: A local rat-catcher who becomes the Giant’s Henchman – a “comedy baddie” type character. (Male)
King Hubert: Typical good King character – somewhat henpecked and a bit of a ditherer. (Mature male)
Queen Hyacinth: A little brighter and more worldly than the King. (Mature woman)
Princess Primrose: Young Princess – kind, pretty and innocent. (Principal Girl)
SCARPER: The Broker’s men – typical, loud, pantomime comedy twosome. Snatchet is the more idiotic of the two. (Probably male, but one or both could be played by females)
HUMPHREY: The Royal Equerry – a bit of a twit. (Male – smaller part)
Buster Gut-bucket: The Giant – see note below.
Buttermilk: A Pantomime Cow.
The Giant’s Minions
Optionally, one can also play the Magic Harpist in Act II Scene 3
Dancers: Featured in musical numbers as desired. Also perform the optional ultra-violet scene. Can also augment Chorus parts.
The date could change, it all depends on the venue
Dance Audition will be the week before at MEIR HOLY TRINITY CHURCH HALL @ 12:30 - 2:30
WORKSHOP FOR PRINCIPALS will be on the same day but starting after the DANCE AUDITION
