Pantomime - your opportunity to get involved..


The Bolney Players will be staging their next local Panto (Snow White) in February 2013 at the Rawson Hall, Bolney. The production will run from Thursday 21st February 2013 to Saturday  23rd February 2013. This is the school half term week.

If anyone is interested in being involved, either on or off stage, please contact the Bolney Players to register your interest. There may not be parts for everyone, but as you know it is our usual approach to try to fit most volunteers into the production, by re-writing the script or as appropriate. As in other years we can accommodate a number of the younger generation, but places are not automatically available.

Please contact Paul or Alison Hollands (after 7.00pm only) by telephoning 01444  881542, or if you need to talk to someone during the daytime then please call Joan and Albert Clifford on 01444  881422

We look forward to hearing from you and your expression of interest.

Happy Pantomaniacing !!!!!!!
