Our tenth anniversary pantomime, Cinderella was staged at Bohunt from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th February 2001 and was a great success.
It marked our pianist Phil Richards last performance with us and at the Saturday evening show he was presented with a framed group photo and a silk tie at an emotional ceremony on stage.
Cinderella's coach was probably our most ambitious piece of scenery (well, is it scenery if it moves ?) to date since it had to do two 90degree turns to get to the stage, and necessitated the moving of Saturday's video man and changes to the seat layout. But it was worth it. The photos don't show the true beauty of it as the lights on the carriage and wheels were only added on the Wednesday but it was truely a carriage fit for Princess Amethyst.

Four years ago, I sat in the principal's office at college and he said, "You're going to Liphook!" "Where?" we replied! A few days later, we came to this mysterious Hampshire village to meet the church and the people. I met my predecessor for the first time at the Saturday night performance - he was none other than "Captain Blackheart!" the baddy! From the very beginning we realised that the MAD panto was the Liphook event of the year, and its good to know there's Methodist behind our madness!

Sadly, this year will be my last MAD panto, but I'm sure that the wonderful MAD panto company, which incredibly began 10 years ago, will continue to grow better and better and better. Next year, an American minister will be serving the Methodist Church in Liphook. This will be a wonderful education in British life for her!

So Cinders, you shall go to the panto...and for many more years to come!

So my thanks to the cast and crew for all their months of hard work, and to you for coming. And welcome, now, CINDERELLA who hasn't aged a day since 1992.

God bless,
Revd David Hinchliffe
Methodist Minister

David was the minister from 1997 when Phil Thomas left, until 2001. Although he didn't appear on stage, both he and Kathyrn were usually to be found helping with the refreshments.
