Tonbridge Community Pantomime is fairest of them all

by Andy Tong | 13th December 2018

THE Tonbridge Community Pantomime [TCP] put on five performances of Snow White last weekend at the Angel Centre which were hailed for their ‘amazing array of talent’.

The event is organised by the town’s Lions Club and their President, Tom Simmons, said: “The TCP are a very talented group of local people who wish to have fun on stage and bring joy to the people of Tonbridge.

“This year they have brought the Christmas magic to our community, with growing and shrinking dwarves, poisoned apples, a few stray winds, lots of evil gremlins – and an amazing array of talent.”

He added: “As the performers sang We Are Family at the end of the performance, the love and enjoyment come across to the audience in bucketloads.

“We can’t wait to see their next pantomime, The Queen of Hearts, in 2019, although a little gremlin tells me we might be seeing them all earlier in the year.”

Proceeds from the shows will go to local charities, and it is understood that the players may be putting on a summer show this year.

Molly Dobson was acting with the troupe for the first time, taking the lead role, and said: “Tonbridge Community Pantomime is truly a beautiful show from a beautiful cast.

“Rarely do you get a show with people so talented yet so humble, welcoming and amazingly lovely.

I’ve made many wonderful memories and am very grateful to all those behind it.”
