MEET THE CAST – ELVIS

13726630_10158228309005121_3983345019239859246_n

Hey, I’m Michael and this is my second year at Norton. My first role was as Captain Hook in Peter Pan. This is a little different. I’m playing Elvis.

When I am not doing Panto I am a member of Worcester vocal group Colla Voca along with Laura (Azura), Jo (Director & Joey The Rat) and Sarah (Franky The Rat). Norton has a great bunch of people and so talented. I love being part of the group and the scripts are traditional, 15994414_10158218805845121_1237764700847905971_obut with a hilariously modern twist. You’ll love it.

MEET THE CAST – KING RAT

10896850_10155162814855121_5032356198236311892_nThey call me King Rat, and I’m the meanest, baddest rat you will ever meet. In my other life, I’m called Vicky and I’m the

meanest, baddest… Well hopefully I’m not that bad!

This is my 6th time treading the boards with NTG, and what I love most (besides the lipstick and glamour) is the family feel. Most members have at least one relative also in the group, and even those who don’t, it feels like a big f26678274_10160008981135121_2273455762685362711_oamily here anyway after all these rehearsals and the back stage banter!

I can’t wait to take you, the audience, on our journey of adventure, intrigue, challenge and corny jokes. Make sure you’re ready to laugh, cheer, boo and hiss!

MEET THE CAST – ALDERMAN FITZWARREN

26731407_10159864486070504_5537900114752027214_nHi, my name is Chris Taylor and I’m playing Alderman Fitzwarren, Dick’s possible future father in law! He’s bit of a rotter.p37

In previous Norton Theatre Group pantomimes I have played The Beast, Robin Hood, first mate Smee and a limbless Black Knight called Dave. I have a wife and 2 sons and I’m a full time student. I love karaoke and running.

My favourite part of each panto is being on stage with my eldest son, Dev, and the audience reaction to the terrible jokes.
