Tall order for amateur dramatists
Royston’s Corvus Amateur Drama Society (CADS) was faced with a tall order recently – building a set big enough for a giant!
But that’s exactly what they did, and its all for the Royston town pantomime which this year will be Jack and the Beanstalk.
Director Bernie Parsons said: “This is the first pantomime I’ve been involved with and I’m amazed how much work goes into just building and painting.
“Alison and I are really impressed with the hard work everyone contributes to the set building weekend, as well as with the care and attention that our technical team puts into every detail.
“It seems no challenge is too great for them.”

The show is written by Damian Trasler, David Lovesy and Steve Clark – the same creative team that brought you this year’s 1001 Arabian Nights.
CADS secretary Michael Young said: “It will feature all the traditional elements of panto, including a good fairy, a bad fairy, a handsome hero, a beautiful princess, a Dame and a pantomime cow plus, of course, the Giant.”
