SIX sell-out shows, standing ovations and a cast spanning several generations all made for a fabulous FADDS (Fishguard And District Dramatic Society) 25th anniversary pantomime at Fishguard’s Theatr Gwaun.

Starring Rosa Brew as the honey-voiced Cinderella, three rude and raucous ugly sisters; Allan Cresswell, Gethin Morris and Colin Hancock and Rachel Price’s marvellous mouse the pantomime showcased a host of local talent aged from six to 60.

Mention must also be made of Jacob Hancock as the charismatic Dandini and panto stalwart Josie Gabel McEvoy as Buttons as well as the youngsters who made up choruses of princesses, guards, villagers and fairies. From curtain up to the final song it was clear that they were all having a ball.

Coupled with costumes from Linda Ogilvie-Davis, set by Melissa Pettitt, props from Jini Williams and live music from Dick Russill, Ben Reynolds and Arron Davies the show was a visual and aural feast.

“It was absolutely brilliant,” said first time panto director, Jana Davidson. “The cast were really brilliant, it was a really good show from all perspectives, I couldn’t have asked for better.

“The cast were amazing, their trust in me was humbling. We all got on really well and the show evolved because of that. The feedback has been amazing.”

The money raised from ticket sales of this year’s pantomime will go towards putting on next year’s spectacle and already suggestions are on the table for what that might be.

“Thank you to everyone at FADDS and everybody who supported us,” said Jana. “It was an absolute blast from start to finish.”
