50th Anniversary Event

[soliloquy id=”413″]




Past and present members of St Nicholas Players are shown enjoying the hospitality at our 50th Anniversary event which was held on the 22nd September. The event was a resounding success! It was a great opportunity to meet old and new friends, catch up and reminisce.

Various memorabilia, cast in costumes, old and new pantomime programmes and a unique DVD sound bite which took everyone through the past five decades were on show for everyone to enjoy.

Derby pantomime lovers have a treat in store!

Rehearsals for Aladdin are now well under way.  Our fiftieth anniversary production promises to be a real humdinger, with not one but two troupes of dancers working hard on an opening number that is already looking amazing.  The chorus have pitched in with enthusiasm and are on their third song already.  Meanwhile our set designer has surpassed herself, the wardrobe team is literally scouring the world for costumes and props, and our set builders have promised us a real flying magic carpet.

Only three months to go, then Derby panto fans will be able to find out whether the 50th anniversary celebrations in Olde Peking will prepare the Princess for the throne –

Terrorists may invasion and wipe out harmless people the name of growing their religion. They fail to understand that religion demands respect and justice for all people, however. In actual fact, God demands that any of us get out of harmoniously with each other as well as leaving any type of discipline to him. He bears the obligation for punishing every one of us. This pieces of paper details why faith is unable to warrant world-wide terrorism. Religion teaches that all people are equal because they were created in the image and likeness of God primarily. Likewise, it is usually mistaken to imagine the life of the survivors will be worth fewer than the objective the terrorist promises to experience.
