Resolven Young Performers Delight Audience with Latest Show


On Saturday April 2ist, I sat in the audience to watch the latest offering from Resolven Young Performers.  The group has grown over the years and this year they performed their pantomime in Cam Gears Club instead of the Miners Welfare to accommodate the larger cast and what a show they gave us. The lights went low and the stage came to life and it was non stop singing dancing and lots of comedy.


The prince and his princess (jack Roberts and Ella Charles ) gave  regal and commanding performances along with their royal entourage along with a most excellent and enthusiastic ‘Silly Billy’ played by Carlie Harris, who interacted with the children in the audience keeping them enthralled .



Dame Trotty played by Josh Sims entered the stage and the panto really came alive.  Along with her son Jack (Harley herring) who was so full of energy and enthusiasm continuously, and daughter (Casey Sullivan) who was at the end of Dame Trotty’s sharp tongue throughout.  The comedy never stopped and in true panto style the Dame became the focus for the night and gave a performance worthy of any stage.














Then came the wicked witch (Libby Herbert) who both thrilled and scared us with her excellent acting and singing. All this was linked beautifully by the good fairy (Gracie O’Sullivan) who gave an impeccable performance.
















No panto is complete without a chorus and when you remember that the groups ages span from 3 to 17 it was a challenge to the leaders of the group (Christina James and Chris Edwards) to teach the many scenes dances and songs needed to make this night one to remember and I can vouch that the challenge was met and achieved beyond all expectations.
