Successful new panto from Youth for Christ
Exhausted at the end of an amazing week the team at North Breckland Youth for Christ look back on their new pantomime James and the Beans
Dan Lawrence of North Breckland Youth for Christ said “the team of young people (and adults) which formed our cast and crew worked hard from Monday to Thursday evening to produce a fantastic production which aimed to portray the parable of the sower in a new way, with beans and a giant cannon! Throughout the week we saw the cast and crew join together, grow in confidence, on stage and with technical things, and we were blessed by the amount of people who turned out for both of the performances, at least 150 at each of them. The team of volunteers that gave up time from work were also amazing and we couldn't have done the production without them. We are also very thankful to Trinity Methodist Church, Dereham for allowing us to use their building and for their help with providing refreshments after the performances and a meal for the cast and crew.”
Other quotes from audience members included:
- HUGE congratulations to everyone involved... On stage, back stage and tech crew... It was fantastic
- A great show a big thanks to all involved.
- We enjoyed the Panto very much. All the youngsters were a real credit
- Congratulations the panto went brilliantly.
