A highlight of our winter schedule is the annual Pantomime put on by the Kennett Amateur Theatrical Society.
This year's panto, "Sleeping Beauty
and the Tangley Wood," will be presented on
Friday, Jan. 26 (7:30 p.m.) and Saturday, Jan. 27 (2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.) at
Kennett High School. Tickets are available on the website (www.callkats.org).
Gary Smith (one of the founders of the group) and Beth Holladay are the directors this year.
The panto is always a hoot. It's not the "Marcel Marceau" kind of pantomime; rather, it's a light-hearted, family-friendly musical with lots of audience participation and time-honored British traditions like the "Dame" (played by a man) and the "silly song."
Odds are good you'll spot a friend or neighbor in the cast.
