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.

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

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.

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
