Charlie the panto pony helps launch theatre appeal
12:47pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
A PANTO pony has helped launch a theatre’s appeal to gather as much unwanted lace ahead of its Christmas production of Cinderella.
The Georgian Theatre Royal, in Richmond, has been training Charlie the miniature Shetland pony for his starring role in the classic pantomime, which opens on Saturday, December 7.
And he was lending a helping hoof when the theatre received a delivery of curtains, tablecloths and napkins this week as part of its set design and decoration.
The theatre is now calling for unwanted lace so the tablecloths and curtains can be transformed into a spectacular part of the show.
The theatre is also appealing for volunteers to use their sewing skills on the lace and other materials under the direction of the Cinderella set designer Kelly Jago before the full rehearsals start at the end of November.
Volunteers able to help with the lace sewing can leave their contact details at the box office, and the theatre will be in touch regarding dates.
Any unwanted lace can be left at the Georgian Theatre on Victoria Road in Richmond by Saturday, November 23. To take part in the Cinderella lace-over, call 01748-825252.
