What a bloomin' great evening! Thank you Bridport Pantomime Players! 

We were delighted to be invited as special guests to yet another tremendous show of Bridport talent at the Electric Palace, for this year's Bridport Pantomime, Treasure Island. A carnation on arrival and a special escort for the evening, and then to be able to join the cast at the end for their party, made us feel extra welcome. It was certainly a treasury of talent and a lot of fun, well written, well directed, great music and accompaniment, and very well enacted - and a great performance from our Deputy Mayor as Ben Gunn! On the night we went, they played to a very lively audience full of the natural delight and excitement of children - perfect for 'it's behind you!'. As an extra to the plot, we always love the wonderful dancers...those gorgeous littlies, looking anxiously to the wings for inspiration...and the experienced and talented 'proper' dancers too. 

However, whilst we sat and lapped up the entertainment, we were not unaware of the huge amount of work that goes into making the costumes, scenery, lighting, music etc. You certainly have a great team. I was so glad to know it has been so well supported - it certainly deserved to be - filliing a large venue like this to capacity over several performances takes some doing. Just goes to show how popular you are!

Anyway, Bridport Pantomime Players, "It's behind you!" for another year - but we're already looking forward to the next!

Warmest thanks from us all
Cllr Anne Rickard (Town Mayor)
