Puss in Boots
30th January to 2nd February 2019
Our veteran director and Vice President Adrian Uzzell has returned to the
director’s chair with a classic pantomime based on a story by the creator of
“Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty”. You may be familiar with the character from "Shrek" or his own animated feature film, but the panto "Puss in Boots" is a traditional mixture of comedy, romance, good versus evil plus music and dance with stunning sets and costumes.
Another great production with a principal boy and girl, Dame, King and Queen, lovable comics and hissable villains; and of course, Puss, who helps our hero regain his inheritance, vanquish the demon and marry well...you know who!
Puss in Boots had a distinctly Spanish flavour – ‘olé’!
Adrian was joined by Marg Abbott as Musical Director and Ley Dobson as
Choreographer; the team behind our 2012 pantomime “Dick Whittington” which was awarded Best Pantomime in the Noda London Awards that same year!
“We have a fantastic and large cast of highly talented principals, but on this
occasion I want to particularly congratulate our youngsters for their abilities,
enthusiasm and commitment – they are stars. The future of Richings Players is in good hands!”
