Murder Mystery Evenings

As part of our initial fund raising efforts in 2011  we performed three Murder Mystery evenings in Titchmarsh, Eltisley and Hilton

The script was penned by Strictly Panto's Jon Hewitt and we have since performed new Murder Mysteries at these and other venues in the near future.

The Murder Mystery was entitled "Sporting Death!" and gave the audience the chance to solve the mystery of a murder which takes place at a charity dinner.

Jon then  completed four more Murder Mysteries - Titanic, Pantomaim,  This is your Death!  and the latest offering:

The Comedy Club

It is a great opportunity to enjoy some fun and food and practice your sleuthing skills.

Who are we?
Some of the members of Strictly Panto from past and present performances

Harriet Millier - Snow White

Harriet is 16 years old and says that singing, dancing and acting are her passions. She has been dancing from the age of 3 and trained in tap, modern, ballet and Pointe at 'Footsteps Dance Academy'. She now attends a full time Musical Theatre College. She first met some of the cast from 'Strictly Panto' in 2010 when she joined Brampton Choral Society where she gained lots of experience playing the role of 'Polly' in The Boy Friend. She then played the part of Cinderella in the inaugural production of Strictly Panto last year.

Anne Pettifor - Queen

Anne is proud to be Chairman of Strictly Panto and honoured to be working with such a great team. Having been on stage from a very young age, and in the last 25 years been involved with The Music Hall Society, Vamps, Simads and Brampton Choral Society, her ambition to create a new pantomime group was fulfilled. Anne so enjoys this unique form of entertainment and, let's face it, there's nothing else quite like it. Having played the Wicked Stepmother in last year's Cinderella and the Wicked Queen in this year's Snow White, hopefully she's not becoming typecast?! Strangely, everyone seems to think the role is ideally suited?! She's proud however to be able to play alongside 2 of her grand-children, Nellie and Ted, who will be appearing at various stages throughout the show (not necessarily where they should be!)

Mike Richards - Sneer

Mike has been very active on the local amateur circuit for many years. He originally became involved after spending four years on the fundraising committee of the St Ives Choral Society. He has performed in many musicals at the Burgess Hall in St Ives, Shakespeare productions on Holt Island in St Ives and the George in Huntingdon as well as many appearances with Brampton Choral Society and the Music Hall Society. He has also appeared at the Cambridge Corn Exchange in Lionel Barfs musical Blitz. He appeared in several Panto's with Brampton Choral Society before playing one of the ugly sisters in last years production. 

 Vanessa Turner - Mirror

Vanessa has been involved in Am Dram officially for nearly 5 years now, but has been hamming it up at various events for many years. Vanessa first trod the boards at school in a production of Dick Whittington and his cat and even made the local press, but only the 5th page. She lives in Hilton with her husband, David (one of the blokes), and her 3 sons, two of whom are in the production. By day Vanessa is a teaching assistant in a primary school and enjoys reading, quilt making, the peace and quiet of her greenhouse and a Pimms with her girlfriends. She has appeared in Crazy for You, The Reluctant Dragon, Mother Hubbard, The Boy Friend, Jack and the Beanstalk, Trial by Jury and has taken part in lots of choral performances, with a local company. This summer Vanessa has reluctantly grunged down for her role in the Murder Mysterys as dowdy Charity Case.

Robert Wain - Stallholder /Thespian 

Robert first appeared on stage in school productions (all boys) of Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas, as a sailor in H.M.S. Pinafore, and as a pirate/policeman in The Pirates of Penzance (where he managed to avoid being cast as a sister/cousin/ aunt/daughter!). He subsequently appeared with various groups & societies in Hertfordshire & Cambridgeshire, taking leading or supporting roles in plays, musicals, operetta, Shakespeare, G & S and Music Hall (to name but a few!). Having done numerous shows with Brampton Choral Society, Robert finally graduated to Dame status when he played the title role in Mother Hubbard in 2008 and then 'Granny Grumble' in Jack and the Beanstalk in 2010. He played Churney in last year's production of Cinderella.

 Jon Hewitt - Stallholder /Unbe

Jon has been involved in local amateur societies for the last nine years, initially working back stage for the Music Hall Society and then on stage for the last six. Prior to that, he always said that he would never join anything that would have him as a member! He has performed in two Panto's with Brampton Choral Society; Mother Hubbard and Jack and the Beanstalk. Jon enjoyed playing Ratcatcher, the baddie, in last years Strictly Panto production. He has written two murder mysteries for the Society and is currently working on the third.

 David Turner - Juggler/Satnav

David's first performance on stage was in Farmer Giles of Ham when he was 11 years old and he continued enjoying being in school plays until he left school. His performing took a different turn after that when he was part of Barclays Brass Band, culminating in a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. David has appeared in several Murder Mysteries over the years, and last year shone as the fairy godmother in Strictly Panto's Cinderella, a challenge in 3 inch heels and fairy wings

Brian Radbone - Old Woman/Bindi

Other than helping youth groups put on variety shows in the early nineties and doing a tiny bit of script writing for a Scout gang show in 2004, Brian had no real experience of being on stage until 2005 when asked by a local choral society to take part in their production of Kiss Me Kate. Having fulfilled a long secret ambition and enjoyed the experience very much, Brian has appeared in Crazy for You, and took the leading role in The Boy Friend. He has also taken roles in Cinderella, Old Mother Hubbard and Jack and the Beanstalk. Brian played Buttons in last years production.

 

Christian Turner - Lucky

Christian has had quite a varied Am Dram life in his short 16 years. He has been in numerous school productions including The Greatest Show on Earth, and Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dream coat. He has also taken the lead in Oliver, been Seaweed in Hairspray and was one of the seven dwarfs in a musical production of Snow White. He was inspired to join a local choral society after seeing his Mum in panto and took part in ]ack & the Beanstalk, and then The Boy Friend. Christian is currently deep into his GCSEs but that didn't stop him from enjoying taking part in more Murder Mystery's over the summer months. 

Peter Sampson - Shopper/Inspector Board

Peter is a relative newcomer to performing on stage, although you wouldn't think so! Peter played the role of the King in last years production and is enjoying his part as Inspector Board in this years show. He has taken part in both seasons of murder mysteries and gave a particularly memorable performance as the local vicar! 

Guy Turner- Huntsman

Guy started his Am Dram life at school, where he took part in an Old Time Mu-sic Hall production, took the lead in the Pied Piper and played Pharaoh in a Finnish musical. Since leaving school his theatrical life had to take a sabbatical to his career plans. Guy recently graduated York St John University with a Bachelor of Education in Primary Education and has taken up his first teaching post at a school in Cambridge. He didn't waste any time in getting back to Am Dram, however, taking the lead this year in his school's staff panto, Cinderfella, though this is his first foray with Strictly Panto. Hamming it up seems to run in the family and it was an easy choice to join. Guy has thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsals. 

Ben Parnell- Musical Director

Ben started playing the piano when he was 10 years old and the saxophone at secondary school. He got involved in school productions, bands and choirs and accompanying people who put music in front of him! Ben knew from a young age that he wanted to share his passion for music and studied Music and Education at University. Whilst there he carried on performing and found a passion for choral singing and conducting. Ben now teaches children in local Primary and Secondary Schools and has recently taken the position as musical director of The Brampton Singers as well as Strictly Panto.
