Babes in the Wood

Attleborough Players

The Attleborough Players must be really pleased with their latest performance. Playing to packed audiences, the final evening saw standing room only. I don't quite know how Derek Tomlinson manages but he always gets it so right. Babes in the Wood was full of of throw away jokes and one liners that made you cry with laughter. The casting was great, especially the parts of Billy and Boris Bludgeon, played by Peter Long and Andrew Woodrow. They worked so well together.

Juggins, the sheriff's not-so-bright lacky, played by Isla Lawrence, endeared herself to the crowd and as for type casting who else could possibly play the nasty Baron Fitz-Badly other than Graham Smith?

With colourful costumes and elaborate scenery, this is one for the photo album.

Producer/director Debbie Thatcher did a fantastic job in her first time in charge so let's hope we see her some more. Keep up the good work Players. If you can do work like this all the time there would be no need for TV…

Look out for the Players' Cabaret Night in aid of Connaught Hall on Saturday, March 29 and the Who Wants to be a Millionaire fundraiser for the Players in April. The next production will be the stage version of the TV series Allo, Allo on July 5,10,11, and 12.
