Rachel Shenton To Open DE Caversmill’s 1st Signed Pantomime

DE Caversmill Theatre Company are extremely proud to announce their first Signed Performance of their Pantomime this year which will be performed on the evening of 30th December 2017. They are proud to announce that the performance will be opened by none other than famous local actress and documented Ambassador for Deaf Awareness and writer of the much celebrated Short Film “The Silent Child”, Rachel Shenton.

They will also have a Deaf Choir from local Deaf Charity DeafLinks greeting audiences in the Foyer. DeafLinks have been extremely supportive of the event and one of their very own will be dancing in the Pantomime this year.

DE Caversmill have been fund-raising to raise funds for an Interpreter for the performance to ensure they can ensure as many children as possible have the opportunity to watch a Pantomime this Christmas and New Year with tickets a bargain price of just £7 for a child.

DE Caversmill Theatre Company are celebrating their 25th Anniversary year with the most popular pantomime of them all, Cinderella. The story goes like: With a wicked Step-Mother (Melanie Fox-Crowther) and two jealous Ugly Step Sisters (Ian Hill and Rob Mills) who keep her enslaved and dressed in rags, Cinderella (played by Kirsty Heath) stands no chance of attending the Royal Ball. However when her Fairy Godmother (Sarah Jablonski) appears she magically transforms her reality into a dream come true as she enchants the handsome Prince Charming (Rebecca Mills) at the Royal Ball. Add into the mix Dandini (Siobahn Hammonds), Buttons (Scotty Bagnall), the two bumbling builders men (Lizzie Capper-Mills and James Murphy) and a bumbling Baron (Dan Tobias Lewis-Doyle) it will be so much fun to see how the story ends for our Cinderella. With rousing songs performed by a 55 strong cast this will truly be one not to be missed.

Cinderella will be performed at the Stoke Repertory Theatre, Leek Road, Stoke on 29th, 30th December 2017 and 5th, 6th and 7th January 2018. Matinee performances are on the 30th December 2017 and 6th and 7th January 2018. Ticket prices are a bargain at just £9 for Adults and £7 for Children and OAP’s.
