Two South Norfolk community groups had a “smashing” time when they put on a pantomime last week.
Slow Theatre Company worked with Wymondham Dementia Support Group (WDSG) to bring Jack and the Beanstalk to the Pabulum Cafe in Wymondham on Friday.
The production’s cast included people with dementia, their carers, families and WDSG volunteers.
Slow Theatre Company founder and artistic director Danny O’Hara said: “It was a smashing success.”
Ms O’Hara said her show highlights included a woman with dementia singing Gilbert and Sullivan’s I’m Called Little Buttercup, and a “surprise visit” from The Spice Girls, featuring WDSG volunteer Dianne Fernee as Baby Spice.
Slow Theatre Company describes itself as a not-for profit organisation with social purpose, initiating, and working with community projects.
