Honiton Pantomime Society wows crowds at its latest production.

Honiton Pantomime Society brought the house down after delivering a fantastic night of variety entertainment to a packed out crowd, writes Katy Griffin.

The talented cast were on fine form as they brought a packed programme of singing, dancing and comedy sketches to life as part of their End of the Pier Variety Show last Saturday.

There was plenty of variety on the night with an opening medley of seaside songs followed by a hilarious new take on the traditional Punch and Judy Show, as well as an elegant solo dance routine from Jamie Crudge.

The West End was even brought to the stage with the town’s very own Von Krapp Family, who performed some well-loved hits from The Sound of Music, together with a scene from Les Miserables.

Max Pipe was a fantastic compere throughout the evening, keeping the packed hall of Honiton Community College well entertained in between performances with his hilarious comedy.

Special guests, The Silent Monks, had the audience in stitches, even Cilla Black, well, Honiton’s version, made an appearance in a special Blind Date sketch.

Rob Grove and his band of wellie wearers added to the electric atmosphere with his performance of the Wellie Song.

The money raised during the event will go towards the society’s next production of Babes in the Wood in February 2012.
