The 2017 Season
In February 2017 it was Irchester Players 40th year, so we gave our audience four shows! Our pantomime was Alice in Pantoland, directed by Dan Wainwright and Luke Campbell. The 70s disco inspired panto brought us great music, great laughs and beautiful costumes!
Other productions in 2017 included The Vicar of Dibley, directed by Ali Everitt, and was our biggest selling show since PantOZmime back in 2016. We also introduced our audience to our new musical revue, Reel Magic, and ended our amazing year with a Christmas Concert, to spread christmas cheer. But that wasn’t enough for us, we also had Fanny’s Abba Mania, with an amazing tribute act, our Oscars night, and even a Christmas concert held at a residential home in Rushden.
