Pantomime final line-up confirmed

Pantomime final line-up confirmed

Three teams from different corners of the country will battle it out at the national finals of the Performing Arts - Pantomime competition, sponsored by Massey Ferguson.

Whitley Chapel YFC of Northumberland and Cheriton & Tedburn YFC of Devon will join Aberedw YFC of Radnor at the final at the Annual Convention in Torquay.

At the Northern regional final in Retford, Whitley Chapel (pictured above) shot down their rivals from Cumbria, Bedfordshire and Derbyshire with their Wild West themed pantomime, "The Good, The Bad and The Panto".

Meanwhile, Cheriton & Tedburn (pictured top right) won their Southern regional final in Weston-Super-Mare, seeing off challenges from Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. The judges were particularly impressed with their performance of 'Rehooded' a spin-off of the classic Robin Hood story.

Club chairman Dan Grist, who plays Robin Hood's son, Billy Hood, expressed his delight at his team's success, tweeting: "What a huge weekend for Cheriton & Tedburn YFC!! Bring on Nationals! #proudchairman @DevonYFC @SouthWestAreaYF".

Wales representatives, Aberedw YFC (pictured bottom right), complete the line-up with their performance of 'The Magic Bone', which tells the story of a crisis in Nursery Rhyme Land, which is being taken over by the evil Creuella.

The three teams will go head-to-head at the national final at the Princess Theatre in Torquay on Saturday 25th April. Tickets for the final are available to the general public, costing £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. For more information and to book your tickets, please contact Gill Harrison, NFYFC competitions officer, on 02476 857225, or email her at Doors will open at 1:00pm.
