Pantomime Players

Meeting at 7 pm on Friday 20th January 2023 in the Village Hall to discuss the future of the Panto Players. Interested - come along and tell us.

New members, players, backstage, prompting, curtains, costumes are always welcome. If there is anyone out there who might be interested in the role of Director for a local production, please contact the Chairman.

The East Harlsey Pantomime Players are a much-acclaimed local drama group and singers who have produced a pantomimes, plays, concerts or variety shows each year between 1997 and 2019. The group was set up by people from East Harlsey and Ingleby Arncliffe but others from the local area are welcome to join – to sing, act, help backstage, or with costumes, lighting, scenery and prompting.

Unfortunately, it has not been possible to plan a pantomime recently due to the lack of a volunteer to direct the show, though there are plenty of keen players and youngsters.

Please go to Photographs for pictures from previous productions - Aladdin, Cinderella and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.
