“From its wide skies to vast, sandy, windswept beaches, Norfolk bequeaths you that most valuable and elusive thing in our crushed, hectic modern lives: a sense of space.”

Walsingham Pantomime 2019

It would be fun to put on a pantomime in the village and we could raise some charitable funds in the process of giving people a good laugh. If we have sufficient interest, the plan is to put on ‘The Wizard of Ozz’ during the week 9th-14th December.

There will be two read-throughs of the script for all those interested in an acting part, on Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th August, in the Pilgrim Hall at the Shrine, from 6.30pm till 8.30pm. You could attend either or both evenings. Potential actors must be aged over 10. Words will need to be learned. Rehearsals will begin on 3rd September, every Tuesday and Thursday except half term week, until the show.

As well as actors, we need people to help backstage and front of house, with scenery, light, sound, props, make-up, costumes, prompting; we need help with catering, both during the shows and at rehearsals, and there are lots of other little jobs people can get involved with, if you’d like to be part of something that could grow.

If you are interested, please email joan.joyce3@gmail.com for further information, or telephone 01328 821707, or just turn up to a read-through.

Hope to see lots of you there!

Walsingham cinema: Tuesday 16th July, ‘Green Book’

Tuesday July 16th, 7.30

Doors open 7pm. Adults £4, under 25s £2

at Walsingham Parish Hall, High Street, NR22 6AA

GREEN BOOK 12A 130 mins Biography/Comedy/Drama

Winner of 3 Oscars – Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Ali) and Best Screenplay, ‘Green Book’ is based on a real life road trip through the deep south in the Jim Crow era of the early 1960s.  When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. (The film takes its title from the real life publication “The Negro Motorist Green Book”, a guide to hotels and restaurants hospitable to black people.)

Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
