Press Review

A Hucknall theatre company is set to celebrate its 48th year in the limelight with a pantomime classic

The curtain goes up on Peter Panto, the Lovelace Theatre Group'd adaptation of the JM Barrie tale, on Wednesday January 20th at the John Godber Centre-the same stage where the group first performed in 1968.
And later this year, members of the amateur dramatics group will perform alongside stars from the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Linda Mayes, who runs the Junior theatre group, has been involved with the company since she first saw Robinson Crusoe as an 11 year old in 1973. She said "I just went along with my Grandma to watch a show and I was hooked. I remember there was a pink elephant and that must have had a big effect."
"I have always had a lover of theatre-I love being up there. Now running the group I love to get the children involved. It helps them to grow in confidence. It's fun. I love to see them progress and blossom. " "The young lady playing Wendy has been with us since she was 10 and now she's in the lead role. We have great links with Holgate school so the children can help build the sets and put it on their CV."
