I SIMPLY had to write to say what a joy Bridgwater Pantomime Society’s recent production of Cinderella was to watch.

I enjoyed it so much the first time that I bought another ticket on the way out and went back later in the week to watch it again.

I know I wasn’t the only person to do that, and for all of you who didn’t come, well, you don’t know what you missed!

I know I’ve said this before, but I really don’t know how Keith and Margaret Robinson, and Richard Porter, manage every year to write, produce and direct a first class show.

Thank you all for what you do, January would be a much sadder place without one of your Pantomimes.

It was so nice to see once again so much talent on the Bridgwater stage; from the children to the adults and oldies in the chorus and dancers.

The cast were brilliant as well from truly wonderful Ugly Sisters to a charming and innocent Cinderella. My friends and I haven’t laughed so much in ages and loved the “It’s Raining Men” routine and the beauty parlour.

A real tonic to the winter blues.

I do have one complaint and that’s with the write-up in the Bridgwater Mercury.

For such a wonderful show the write up was very small, and as I watched the show twice, I noticed several members of the cast weren’t even mentioned, neither were the producers and directors.

We used to get two pages full of bright colourful photographs showing off the lovely costumes and scenery as well as the cast. Why didn’t we get to see it this year?

Surely two pages one issue a year isn’t too much to ask for something that brings such joy to so many people?

Come on Bridgwater Mercury – support the local talent and groups in Bridgwater!

Finally, I must thank Bridgwater Pantomime Society again for a great night out and I look forward to next year’s show with anticipation.
