MEET THE CAST – RICKY ‘STICKLEBACK’ McSPLASH

img_1968Hi, I’m Chloe aged 13. I’ve been part of the Norton Theatre group since the 2013 production of Aladdin.

I’ve played villagers, demons, delivery drivers, knights and fairies all with small speaking roles. Then from 2016 onwards I had principle roles such as Bill The Pirate in Peter Pan, Billy Badbreath and The Lady of The Lakes assistant Beryl in Camelot.CHLOE

This year I’m taking on the role of Ricky Stickleback McSplash, one of the Old Sea Captains nephews.

MEET THE CAST – DELAROZA

 My name is Anjuna and I am playing the part of Delaroza, the Good Witch, who helps Dick achieve his goal.

This is my fifth panto at Norton and I have previously been in the chorus and played the roles of John Darling in Peter Pan and Izzy the trainee witch in Camelot.

I really enjoy doing them because of how much fun it is to perform in proper shows which are also so funny for both the cast and audience.

MEET THE CAST – FRANKY THE RAT

robin-hood-79Hi, my name is Sarah and I work at Homebase and Warndon Library.

I have been with Norton Theatre Group since I was 7 years old. This is my 26th show (I think) and this will be my second time doing Dick Whittington. This time I am playing Franky, one of King Rats henchmen.

I have played a variety of roles including Wendy in Peter Pan, Robinson Crusoe, the Cat in our first production of Dick Whittington over 20 years ago, and a number of baddies including The Sheriff of Nottingham, Abanaza and Morgana the Sourceress.

I’m married to our scriptwriter and we have a little boy who I’m sure will join us when he’s bigger. Outside of panto I enjoy crafting and karaoke.

I love it when the stage goes up, the scenery is painted and it starts to come together. Norton Theatre Group is a wonderful group full of so many fantastically talented and nice people.the-sleeping-beauty-009

MEET THE CAST – ALICE FITZWARREN

rebecca dick2Hi, I’m Rebecca and  I play Alice Fitzwarren; Dick’s love interest. I’m very excited as Alys is my middle name. 
This is my first year doing panto and I have never acted before so I am tad nervous. I decided to do the panto this year as a lovely lady thought I would be good and I wanted to show my children even though you are nervous about doing something new, you can achieve anything and step out side the box and give it a go.rebecca dick3

So far I have loved every minute of the rehearsals with the cast (my new friends) and even got a giggle from my ‘I love dick’ t-shirt

MEET THE CAST – THE PAPER BOY

robin-hood-50Hi I’m Dev and I’m 10 years old! I’m loud and energetic and just love being in the panto.

This is my 4th one. I have had small speaking parts from the start, usually demons and villagers! This year I’m the paperboy. My favourite part of the panto is doing something fun with my Dad

MEET THE CAST – SAMMY THE RAT

26230559_10160008982570121_1610872237031953523_nI’m Vonnie Ralphs, and I’m a staff nurse – so I guess I work in theatre and play in theatre!!

DIck Whittington is my 2nd show with Norton after many years away from the stage. I used to be in Norbury theatre group. A couple of years ago I had such a good time watching Norton’s Peter Pan I decided to get back into it.

I played Mordrid last year in Camelot (he was a bit of a stupid idiot!) And this year I’m playing one of King Rat’s henchmen, Sammy the Rat, who is also a bit stupid … hmmm … should I be offended??!!

Hope everyone enjoys this year’s show and has a good giggle at the fantastic script!

MEET THE CAST – DICK WHITTINGTON

26229732_10160003703805121_7936768546938153786_n

Hey, my name is Rob Milner and I’m playing the role of Dick Whittington. 
This is my 3rd year with Norton Theatre Group, having played a ‘beautiful’ Mermaid and a wannabe knight of Camelot. I have such fun just being silly on stage.
I used to do plays all the time when I was younger but being a father of 4 it had to take a back seat. However, now they’re getting a bit older my daughter Ebony wanted to join so we joined together.
The show is full of bad jokes so bad it makes them amazingly funny and hearing the reaction from the audience always makes me feel so chuffed.
