Come and see the ‘fairest panto in the land’. A fun-filled, family friendly, traditional pantomime full of comedy and feel-good songs where love conquers evil.
Follow the adventures of the beautiful Snow White, hiss and boo at the Wicked Queen and her silly sidekicks, marvel at the talking mirror and laugh, or groan, at the typical panto jokes. Audience participation is actively encouraged – oh yes it is!
There is something for everyone in this show so please come along and find your ‘happily ever after’.
More about the St James’s Players
We are a local amateur dramatics group based at St James Church Hall in New Malden, Surrey. Our members range from 16 years old to over 80 years young. The group enjoys not only theatre work but also a variety of other social activities.
The Players usually perform 2 plays a year, in May and October, and a pantomime (or revue) in January. Each play is normally 4 performances but a pantomime could be as many as 6 shows, including matinees.
The group also actively raises funds for charities. In recent years we have raised money for Lymphoma Research, Mencap, Born Too Soon, the Down’s Syndrome Association, Alopecia UK and The Royal Marsden Hospital. Our charity for 2023/24 is The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability.
“The medical charity provides rehab and cares for people with complex disabilities for 160+ years. They support people that live with acquired or traumatic brain injury, neuro-disability or long-term neurological conditions.”
Members can help in a variety of ways, not just acting on the stage. We have a dedicated team of helpers backstage and front of house without whom the shows would not happen. This includes sound, lighting, set building, costumes and refreshments. The applause at the end of each show is also for these valued members of the group.
