Never go on stage with children or animals" is an old adage that doesn't bother Exmouth Players' versatile panto principals Leila Ellis and Marc Blaber, who are looking forward to appearing with both in the fabulous family pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk which opens at the Blackmore Theatre next Tuesday, January 15.
Marc is cast as 'everybody's mate' Simple Simon, son of Dame Trott (Simon Blissett) and brother of Jack. As well as causing loads of laughs, he will warm hearts as, surrounded by children, he sings Tommy Steele's Little White Bull.
Leila, who makes a striking Principal Boy, in the title role, doesn't mind sharing the limelight with Daisy the Cow who will entertain with her antics. Jack reluctantly takes Daisy to market and is tricked by the evil Almonella (Tony Christopher) into selling her for a bag of beans, which later prove magic. Ruth Tompkins and Jayne Cherry will delight as Daisy. Jayne's father, Peter Hall, will be in the orchestra as percussionist for his 17th panto at the Blackmore.
Don't miss the fun. Join Simple Simon, Jack, Daisy and the cute children at the Blackmore Theatre from Tuesday, January 15 - Saturday, January 26 - 7.30pm. Tickets are available from Durawhite Windows, The Strand, Exmouth - telephone (01395) 264408.
