Every February, in Church Broughton, it is the tradition that a pantomime be performed. Now in its 44th(!) year, and 30 years since our James was first involved in the Chorus as a kid, rehearsals are well underway.
It's special for James this year for another reason: this is the first one he has written - a silly version of 'The Phantom of the Opera', A.K.A. PHANTOMIME!
It's a real community effort, not least for the number of people needed to convert the village school into a working theatre during half-term, and one of the highlights of the year for many. It's also a great, relaxed creative outlet for the cast and crew 😊
