Search For Just The Right Pumpkin Takes Panto Cast On An Adventure!

The cast of The Elgiva’s pantomime Cinderella were out and about in Chesham last week making sure they shall go to the ball!

At the kind invitation of the Christmas Tree Farm in Chesham, Tom Owen (star of the BBC’s Last of the Summer Wine), Ben Moseby (host of Mix 96’s popular Breakfast Show) and panto regulars Sean Luckham, Kaya Rose and Nic James strapped on their wellies and took to the pumpkin-laden fields to find just the right carriage.

There were plenty of japes as the cast inspected the pumpkins, dodged the mud (mostly) and larked about in the storage barn where the pumpkins are kept dry ready for Hallowe’en. Even the Ugly Sisters were spotted cracking a smile or two!

The whole team from The Elgiva and our new partners for this year’s extravaganza, New Pantomime Productions, are looking forward to bringing you a traditional family panto packed with songs, live music, gags, slapstick and plenty of audience participation (Oh no, you’re not! Oh yes, we are!).

Cinderella is the classic rags-to-riches tale where dreams really do come true. Join us this Christmas by getting your tickets from the Box Office at the theatre, or on 01494 582900, or online at at any time. After all, Christmas simply isn’t Christmas with a PANTO! Our undying thanks to Jakki and Robert of the Christmas Tree Farm for letting us loose on their farm and to Gilberts Taxis for transportation fit for a princess.
