Saturday night was pantomime time and an evening of fun and entertainment with the fabulous production of Humpty Dumpty at Aldridge Youth Theatre.

Once again we were superbly entertained with some good pantomime fun, written by the talented Neville Ellis and superbly directed by Alex Fisher. Every pantomime needs a dame and we were certainly not disappointed by the colourful Betsy Bannock the palace nanny. Together with a boy called Humphrey Dumfrey from Walsall, Private Trott, Captain Cantor and Sergeant Gallop the Kings Men, and Horace the Kings Horse, it was a splendid evening.

The Aldridge Youth Theatre and all of its budding young actors and actresses as well as all of the volunteers who work in the background are an inspiration to Aldridge for the work they do and it was a pleasure to be in the audience once again.

I was also delighted to get my own first ever mention in pantomime – “Oh Yes I did!”
