I really can't believe this is the eighth Benenden panto production since I became a NODA rep and the seventh I've had the pleasure to review. Each one has had a slightly different twist on the norm and this year was certainly no exception.   Read more...

Another super script from Beverley Beveridge, again, something a little different, bending the history of 'stand and deliver' notorious Dick Turpin, in the vicinity of Benenden, Kent.   Read more...

This production was faultless and I loved that fact that all your members are so included. This was a true village team effort from both the cast and back stage crew. The continuity was good as were entrances and exits. With both comedy and pathos, great numbers and audience involvement. The many other cameo roles, too many to mention individually, were performed convincingly. Congratulations all round.   Read more...

NODA review of Sleeping Beauty
Tuesday - Feb 5, 2013 5:09 pm

A popular panto story of the baby princess growing up, the reversed witch's death threat turned into a mere 100 year nap and no wrinkles, the handsome prince awakening her and the kingdom living happily ever after. The undertaking of both writing and directing this panto was successfully taken on by Bev Beveridge, with a script full of local jokes, topical jokes with wonderful double entendres and a sprinkle of panto corn and slapstick thrown in the pot. Together with talented principals and large supporting cast of well rehearsed youngsters, parental support, the unsung backstage heroes, this was a fun pantomime experience.
