Chipping Norton Pantomime 2014

West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts student Maddie Good has been successful in passing recent auditions for this year's pantomime in Chipping Norton: 'Mother Goose'

West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts Witney 

This will be the second pantomime in Chipping Norton that Maddie has appeared in, as she also performed in last year's production of 'Jack & The Giant'.
Maddie was recently delighted to be one of only six children offered a part in this year's 'Summer Panto Chaos', also at the Theatre in Chipping Norton, marking their 40th anniversary. 
Previous performances include appearing as Brigitta Von Trapp at The New Theatre, Oxford with the Oxford Operatic Society.

Child actors (Pippins) have always played an integral role in the pantomimes at Chipping Norton and unlike many other Christmas shows, they get great characters, lines and songs.
This year directors were looking for 12 'Pippins' between the ages of 8 and 14 to make up three teams as part of their company of professional actors. 'Pippins' act, dance and sing and help create the magic of pantomime!
Mother Goose is the kindest, loveliest, friendliest lady in all the land.  Times are hard, but surely she would never give into temptation, never abandon her friends and family just for good looks or would she?

This classic panto tale is transported to a sparkling Arctic adventure through the Scandinavian snows, crammed full of trolls, snowmen, woolly jumpers and even the occasional moose.

It promises stunning scenery and costumes, gobsmacking songs from a TONY award winning composer and an avalanche of laughter.

Performances of Mother Goose are 18th November 2014 to 11th January 2015.
