Panto Group

Barrow Panto Group

We will be starting our 2017/18 season very soon. We will probably be performing Dick Whittington  on Friday 9th and Sat 10th March 2018.

Rehearsals will probably start on Wednesday November 22nd in the Hall of Humphrey Perkins from 7:30pm - 9:30pm. Subsequent rehearsals will be on Wednesdays in the Arts Theatre of Humphrey Perkins from 7:30pm - 9:30pm.

We may be able to accommodate new adult members to act, but we are always also looking for help e.g. people to paint scenery, make costumes, design posters etc. Then there are all the helpers who we need backstage during a show: prompting, operating the curtain, doing make up, helping as a dresser, lighting, sound, props etc.

The Panto Group is managed by the Panto Steering Committee who meet as necessary.

To contact us, phone 07718 153117 or email judithrodgers155@gmail.com

We''re looking forward to yet another season!!

Panto Group History


The Panto Group was formed in the autumn of 1996. Judith Rodgers called a meeting of anyone interested one stormy rain-lashed night. Despite a power cut, the enthusiasm of the twenty or so people who turned up was enough to get started.
We kicked off with Humpty Dumpty. Perhaps the most memorable image for me was Tom Fairbrother who was 13/14(?) wearing an amazing egg shell dressed in red and blue striped shorts and bright turquoise tights. John Earl played the larger than life Dame with enormous humour and dramatic effect. 
With huge enthusiasm that derived from the successful performances of Humpty and the evident delight of the audiences, we launched into an Old Time Music Hall the next autumn. We asked George Robinson to compere the show...he was a natural. Later, when John bowed out of his Dame role, George stepped seamlessly in and is now the focal point of many of our pantos.
