Project Description

Our Pantomime of 2015 was a enjoyable show based on the character from Greek mythology Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter, and queen of the underworld. Drawn into the underworld by Hades she becomes a formidable, venerable majestic princess who carries into effect the curses of men upon the souls of the dead. Persephone becomes married to Hades, the god-king of the underworld and the myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation, which shoots forth in spring and withdraws into the earth after harvest.

One week before the opening of the pantomime over half the cast and chorus took ill and unfortunately led to it’s cancellation.
