On Saturday the 3rd of December the Blue Sky Actors performed the ‘Pant-uh-o that goes wrong’.
“The accident-prone Blue Sky Actors take to the stage and battle against all odds to make it through their pantotastic telling of The Little Red Riding Hood, with hilarious consequences when things don’t quite go to plan! Expect fun, farts and festive cheer!
Director Molly said: “Blue Sky Actors are a group of incredibly talented learning-disabled adults who are known for putting on legendary annual Christmas pantomimes. But it was about time that one would go wrong… so very, very wrong.”
The audience were blown away by the performance, here is what some viewers had to say:
“Blue Sky Actors are a group of extremely talented, learning-challenged adults who have come together this year to put on a splendid pantomime in the very heart of Stratford, east London. This heart-warming production is a testament to what can be accomplished with hard work, dedication and vision. All the actors involved are an inspiration to the audience and the actors participation in the production provides them with a sense of achievement and reinforces their love of theatre and its unique power to transform and uplift.”
“Face Front’s Pant-uh-o this year was just brilliant and not in a ‘brilliant in inclusive arts type of way’, it was excellent by any measure. The actors clearly enjoyed doing it as much as the audience enjoyed watching it. It was really cleverly put together with everyone getting their moment in the spotlight (although as it was the Pant-uh-o – the spotlight wasn’t always where it should be!) and a shining example of what inclusive theatre groups can achieve.”
“WOW ! Where do I start…10 weeks ago my daughter was welcomed into the Blue sky family with open arms. The encouragement, support & Love has seen her go from never acting to being a part of an amazing team & performing in a pantomime which was 2 hours of sheer laughter, tears & joy. Thank you Face front for believing in everyone & proving that anything is possible when you believe.”
Thank you again to our funders; Brian Murtagh Charitable Trust, The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, National Lottery Community Fund, L&Q Place Makers for making this production possible.
