LISTEN AGAIN | News In Focus – Backstage at the Panto

This week’s News In Focus, which went behind the scenes of this year’s Panto at Mansfield Palace theatre, is now online to listen again. 

Ahead of “Curtain Up” on Saturday night, Mansfield 103.2s Craig Priest was invited along to get a taste of how things were shaping up for this years production of “Peter Pan” which, is the most highly anticipated production at Mansfield Palace Theatre in years with nearly 85% of tickets already sold for the run.

The program catches up with both the stars of the show and the creative team who are working hard behind the scenes to make the magic happen.

Actress Jessica Punch who plays Peter said “Am I allowed to give away secrets? No, surely not! It is magic, I have fairy dust and think happy thoughts and they just lift me up into the air. For most kids it’s like their first time at Panto or the first time at theatre so they don’t anything different so they really believe and get absorbed into the story. It’s a magical time for them”

Several of the areas youngsters appear in the play and actress Hayley-Jo Whitney who plays Mrs Darling said “The Michaels, the little ones, are hilarious if we fluff a line – one of them yesterday turned around and said ‘Ahh I thought I was working with REAL actors’ so they are just brilliant. I’ve been doing this since I was a kid and I think as a kid you just have no fear of making mistakes – you just put everything out there”
