On Saturday, I took the family to see Cobham Players’ pantomime production of Aladdin at Cobham Village Hall. This year’s pantomime had special significance as it marks 70 years since Cobham Players was formed. Aladdin was the group’s first pantomime in 1948 and in attendance was Mary Worsfold who played the Princess in the original production (pictured centre stage below).
Cobham Players are a terrific dramatic society who regularly put on plays, musicals, pantomimes and other entertainment in Cobham and the surrounding areas. They put on three major plays a year, and you can check out a list of upcoming events on their website here. I met with the group back in September 2017 and I was really impressed with their enthusiastic and friendly approach in playing a valuable role in our community life by providing top notch entertainment for a wide range of tastes and ages.
My thanks to Victoria Franklin for the kind invitation , and to all the cast and crew for a terrific performance.
