Premiere for Paston Sixth Form students film of Sheringham pantomime

A fly-on-the-wall film documentary about Sheringham's pantomime will be given its premiere at the weekend.

The behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Little Theatre's Dick Whittington show has been made by students at Paston Sixth Form College - which also provided director Simon Thompson and student actress Georgia Goodson who played rat Scaramouche.

College teacher of music technology and creative media Richard Poynton, said the students formed their own production company, Rec17, to make the film and began work last October.

As part of their course work, they shot rehearsals for the show, and gathered footage and interviews with the cast and production team from the Little Theatre.

'The project was designed to include a range of disciplines and to allow the students to find a variety of roles for themselves,' he said.

College principal Peter Mayne said it built on the strong links with the theatre, which last year saw students commissioned to create a photographic exhibition and film documentary on the history of seaside entertainment.

The documentary will be screened at 7.30pm on Friday, January 27, at the Sheringham Little Theatre. For more information or for tickets priced �2 call 01263 822347.
