Selected Photos from Pilton Panto 2018

Here are some images to warm you up after the 'big freeze' which almost missed Pilton altogether. Click on the picture below to see an album of over 100 of the 400 photographs taken by photographer Julie Wicks of this year's panto Robin Hood & the Babes in the Wood in February. Thanks Julie for some great shots.

And below you can also see photographs from the 2016 Panto Aladdin and the 2017 Panto Dick Whittington both of which were great successes and between them raised £2,200 towards the cost of the permanent bar being built in the Hall.

More about Pilton Panto

The history of theatrical productions in Pilton Church Hall goes back to at least 1923-24 and the play Oliver Twist.  The last play produced there was Noèl Coward’s Blithe Spirit by The Lord Basil's Reformers in 2014 and there have been a couple of very successful Murder Mystery plays in the meantime - Who Killed the Hotel Manager in 2016 and Who Killed the Pop Star in 2017.  The last pantomime produced in Pilton before Aladdin in 2016 and Dick Whittington in 2017 was Cinderella in 2013.

The 2016 panto Aladdin, was adapted and directed by Lee Smith, and happened during the February Half-term. Dick Whittington was the 2017 panto produced at the same time in February 2017. It was both written and directed by Lee Smith. The 2018 panto Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood, again written and directed by Lee Smith, took place in the Spring Half-term holiday in February 2018 and was a great success.
