Jack and the Beanstalk was staged at Bohunt from Thursday 25th to Saturday 26th January 1996 and was the first with a full photographic record. I turned up in October 1995 intending to photograph the principals and come back for the Dress Rehearsals in January, but I got hooked.
It's not that the rehearsals are funnier than the performance, although some rehearsals are a performance in their own right, but since early in the 1996-7 season I've had the 'coffee making at rehearsal' job so I have to be there!

Dear Friends,
The MAD Pantomime has become something of a Liphook tradition This is now our fifth production and for the second year running we have had to put on a extra performance due to the demand for tickets.

I would like to thank you, the Audience, for your enthusiastic support of our efforts. There would be no pantomime without you. Those of you who have been here before will know that you are very much a part of the whole show.

Vanessa Breach has written and directed this Pantomime, indeed she has been a driving force of our Company for all of our five years. The cast as in previous years have enjoyed themselves rehearsing for this Pantomime.

We are almost all connected with the Methodist Church and this makes for a very special friendship between us and I hope that when you see it, this performance will show you a rather different side of th church and its people.

So sit back and be prepared for a few surprises, lots of laughs, and maybe a wet sloppy kiss if you are sitting in the wrong seat!

Yours MADly
Rev. Phil Thomas
Chairman of MAD
