“Goody Two Shoes” at Denaby

Members of the Tom Hill youth Club, Denaby, presented their fourth pantomime this week in the youth Centre, “Goody Two Shoes.”

Mavis Senior, who played Goody Two shoes, although she was troubled with laryngitis, gave a really first-class performance. Tall, attractive Wendy Cole  portrayed Prince Caromel, I am sure that the whole audience were impressed by her singing.

A very pretty fairy Queen was played by Nora Chatfield, and Ethel Reeve played the part of Betty Blue. A comic twosome Nick and Mac, played by Graham Nicholson and Peter Healy, were especially humorous and were a great success with the children.

The most amusing character was My Son John, this part being taken by Harry Regan. The parts of the Dame, the Baron and Belinda were taken by Derek Hirst, Eddie Jones and Raymond Potts. Barbara Ball took a really excellent role as a fearsome -looking witch, and sprightly Jack a Dandy was played by Eunice Stockwell. The part of Bingo the dog was played by Clarence Manchester

The highlight of the evening, which raised laughs from everyone, was a scene in which four members of the cast, John Bright, Clarence Manchester, Royden Cook and Harold Hall, complete with grass skirts and wreaths of flowers, performed a hula hula dance.

Other members of the cast were Jean Thomson, Brenda Davies, Brenda Watkins, Marlene Dufty, Rita Gledhall, Anne Roberts, Yvonne Sharples, Rose Griffin, Jean Davies, Gladys Watkin, June Reeves, Gillian Myers, Jean Watkins, Megan Watkins, Maureen Buckleigh, Ethel Squires, Pat Sampy.

Miss Zena Marshall was producer, assisted by Mr Raymond Walsh, the club youth leader, and parents of the cast of the pantomime. Miss May Sharp was in charge of make-up and costume. Pianist was Mrs E.M.Bryers, A.L.C.M. and the drummer Mr Peter Unwin relations were prepared and served by Jean Scott, Lillian Cheesman, Kathleen King, Margaret Bramley, Joan Cheesman and Irene Scott.
