Mayor presents a cheque for £970 to pay for a palace scene backcloth
Lyme Regis Town Council helped set the scene for the town’s annual pantomime.
It donated £970 to pay for a backcloth, depicting a palace scene, for the production of Sleeping Beauty.
Mayor Michaela Ellis attended the opening night, at Woodmead Halls, when she presented a cheque to Lyme Regis Pantomime Society.
Chairman Amanda Rattenbury-Davies said: “The society is so grateful for the support from Lyme Regis Town Council.
“The grant has enabled us to purchase a new backcloth to enhance our productions.
“As a society we have a team of volunteers that work so hard to ensure and our shows get better year on year. But we couldn’t do it without the valuable support we get from grants like this.”
Cllr Ellis said: “Yet again, Lyme Regis Pantomime Society pulled out all the stops to put on a fantastic show for the town… the council was pleased to support the society with this grant.”
“The standard gets higher every year and the quality of the costumes, scenery, staging and music was very impressive, not to mention the excellent performances and back-stage support by the whole team.
“The annual pantomime is well-loved by local residents.”
