Did the Prince find his wife? Did the Beast find happiness? Did Captain Hook get his comeuppance and did the pesky elves manage to ruin Christmas or will good prevail?
On Wednesday 19 December, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) students entertained with a festive Pitstop Panto Show. A collection of pantomimes, including Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Peter Pan, turned the evening into a fun family event with barely an empty seat in the house.
The show was the first of its kind at RuTC, as acting students worked alongside students from other departments: a media student filmed the actors to sharpen his own filming skills and two dance students took over roles on as well as off stage. Two RuTC performing arts alumni did not want to miss out on the chance to support this special performance and performed on the night. Two acting lecturers played active parts in the show and were great role models for the students.
Jane Swift, Performing Arts lecturer at RuTC, said: “The audience enjoyed the show and our students did really well. They demonstrated a good learning curve, not only in acting, but also while working on the set, shopping for props and designing their costumes. This show was a real team effort.”
