RICHARD PARR Hamonds High School


Swaffham Players put their all into their interpretation of this ever-popular story. Producer Brian Hubbard's policy of sticking to the story was the right decision, judging from the enthusiastic response from Saturday's capacity audience.

There were laughs a-plenty at the antics of the ugly daughters and Sue Baxter and Will Aitkin made a suitably zany pair. Even zanier were Charlie Maysh and Neil Messenger as Cockles and Mussels.

Sara Large shone in the title role, and Robert Duncan as Buttons quickly established a rapport with the audience. Christopher Dilley was particularly effective as Prince Charming.

Principal dancers were Maryrisa Chappell, Clare Knock and Kevin Dack, and the impressive set was created by David Standen with lighting design by John Reed.

The enthusiastic cast were accompanied by Rachel Johnson on keyboards and John Critteden on drums.
