FMTC Pantomime cast announced

Rehearsals are in full swing for the theatre highlight of the festive season as Frome Musical Theatre Company prepares for their production of the enchanting fairy tale ‘Sleeping Beauty’. 

Tickets have been on sale since August and are already selling very quickly.

When a new Princess is born to King Cactus and Queen Marigold the entire kingdom rejoices! As they celebrate Princess Rose’s christening the Good Fairies bestow gifts of the heart on the child…But, the festivities are rudely interrupted by Bad Witch Hazel, who says she has not received an invitation to the blessing.

In her rage she proceeds to cast an evil curse on the child whereby on her 16th birthday she will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die!

FMTC’s pantomime follows Princess Rose as she grows up in the palace under the careful watch of the Good Fairy Lilac and the King’s newly appointed PANTIES (Point And Needle Tip Inspection Experts!) who protect her…will the spell ever be broken? You’ll have to come along to find out!

As always the show will be packed full of slapstick humour, vibrant costumes and popular music, this year it includes numbers from Queen, Christina Perry, ‘Matilda the Musical’ and Disney’s ‘Frozen’.

The principle line up is as follows; Younger Princess Rose – Caitlin Seal,  Princess Rose – Alicia Smith, Prince Alexis – Emma Golay, Dame Dottie Dettol – Jon O’Loughlin, King Cactus – Humphrey Barnes, Queen Marigold – Teresa Bray, Good Fairy Lilac – Nicole Wooldridge, Bad Witch Hazel – Vic Withers, Muddles – Simon Joyce, Fetch – Garry Hill and Carry – Oli Wareham.
