The Fringe Files

Christmas Evie the Panto

For late 2016, The Fringe Files presented new seasonal family show, Christmas Evie the Panto, written and directed by Michael Starr.

The Trailer

Here's a rehearsal video trailer:

The Plot

When rebellious sibling Grace consistently misbehaves during the build up to Christmas, the wicked Gimbel takes matters into his own hands, banishing Grace from the rest of her family and friends.

Will Grace realise the error of her ways? Will sister Evie, mummy Candy and orphan friend Nicholas manage to rescue her? Join us for this fab feel good family friendly morality tale, featuring popular sing-along tunes along the way.

The Notes

For this production, The Fringe Files welcomed back Brian Paterson (performer), Jon Attwood (performer), Craig Weaver (performer), Charlotte Watkin (front of house), Robert Walker (photographer), Charlotte Wright (performer), Rhian Brimble (stage manager), Sarah Brady (costume design) & Michael Starr (writer / director).

In addition, we were delighted to introduce new members Lisa Wynne (artwork design), Chris Harris-Beechey (performer), Charlotte Elizzabeth Langley (performer), Will Leighton (Lighting Tech) & Emma Victoria Loveday (performer) to the team as newbies.

For the first time, The Fringe Files presented a full length show, which featured our largest ever production team. Additionally, it was the first time that we’d produced a show at a fixed (non-touring) venue and the first time (lots of first times here) that we performed during the Winter period. Catering during the performances was provided by Neck of the Woods cafe.
