Amateur thespians from across South Cheshire are gearing up for their latest production, Red Riding Hood, and we at Mornflake are proud to support them once again as they take to the stage in the 45th Shavington village pantomime.
A cast of more than 40 adults and children drawn from Shavington, Crewe and Nantwich, will tread the boards at Shavington Academy from February 20th to 24th.
We’re honoured to be recognised by the organisers of the Shavington Village Festival Committee for our longstanding support.
Last year’s panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, is nominated for 10 National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) awards including best panto, director and supporting ‘person’ in this instance Buttercup the Cow.
Committee chair Erica Wood said: “Mornflake has shown wonderful support over the years. They take a page advert in our programme and supply raffle prizes for our fundraising events which help to cover production costs.
“They’ve helped us with publicity also and without the support of local businesses like Mornflake we wouldn’t have stood the test of time, especially now with everything costing so much.”
Generations of local people are once again involved on stage and behind the scenes in this year’s show.
Erica, who began making costumes when her daughters joined the cast in 1993, added: “Shavington village panto is an annual tradition and as ever this year’s show is full of great performances and many laughs for all the family to enjoy.”
Our Managing Director, James Lea, said: “South Cheshire is our home where we employ local people so we like to help where we can, especially those organisations and community activities that support mental health by bringing people together.”
