PANTO: The first three performances of Peter Pan presented by the Burwash Amateur Pantomime Society have been a resounding success. That is the feeling I am getting from the amazing comments from those who were lucky enough to be in the audience. Comments like I haven’t laughed so much in a long time, the fluffs were professionally covered by the talented cast. There was a lot of audience participation from adults and children alike. One comment from a long standing member of the village who has seen most of these pantos over the years was its the best ever. There are three more performances this weekend, tonight, Friday, at 8pm and tomorrow, Saturday, at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. You may be lucky enough to get tickets, call in at the Internet cafe in the car park this morning from 10am to 1pm or try the ticket line at www.ticketsource/baps.
