Panto Is An Astonishing Success
Did we have the best time at Cinderella? Oh yes, we did.
The first-ever Lisieux Trust Pantomime was astonishing.
Funny, touching, special. It was all those things, as the residents, tenants and their families came together to make last night one of the most incredible you can imagine.
Residents were the stars, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as the Glass Slipper fitted (although, of course this is the Trust so it wasn’t actually a glass slipper and we made sure to put our own spin on it….)
Residents and Tenants had worked incredibly hard for months, coming together each week to rehearse – and their work paid off, because the night surpassed even the most optimistic of expectations.
We are incredibly proud of everyone involved, from our staff, the volunteers who gave up their time to assist, but most of all the residents themselves who were absolutely amazing.
Special thanks too, to the staff at Sutton Town Hall, who were brilliant in assisting, in particular Brad, who did the sound and the lighting and manager Liz.
Most of all, though, Registered Manager, Becky who took what was a small idea of what we could do for an activity, and turned it into something that we could never have imagined. She is pictured below receiving a well-deserved bouquet from the cast.
Such was the joy onstage last night, people are already asking if we’ll do it again next year.
Let’s just say, watch this space…….
