Members of Burnham-On-Sea theatrical group Curtain Call performed an animal-themed production in front of an appreciative audience in the town’s Princess Hall on Saturday night (July 29th).

The group’s annual summer production, called ‘An Evening of Song and Dance’, raised money for East Huntspill-based Secret World Wildlife Centre – and each of the 28 songs had an animal theme.

“We’ve admired the work that Secret World do for some time,” said Principal Patricia Ham. “They do a super job.”

“Choosing them has also given us a great theme for the evening, with each performance having an animal theme or link.”

“We had some obvious numbers, such as ‘Ugly Bug Ball’ and ‘Bright Eyes’, mixed in with some less obvious choices, such as hits by The Eagles and Seal, so there was something to suit all musical tastes!”

The charity extravaganza was filled with memorable songs and dances. First up was Circle of Life from the Lion King, performed by Curtain Call’s Senior Musical Theatre Group, junior group, and both sets of dancers.

Those taking part – all pictured at the top of this page – included Lillie Andrews, Laura Brown, Hope Elliott, Dean-William Emery, Jemma Wendy Hazell, Edward Kimmins-Tonkin, Jemma Louise Morgan, Gabby Giovanni, Ben Hazell and Danielle Keirle.

Also taking part were Lois Sankey, Lydia Vera Williams, Natalie Babajee, Terri Davies, Tom Kyffin, Geoffrey Nash, David Neville, Jane Quick, Alex Turco, Annabel Criddle, Bethany Criddle, Evelyn Andrews, Melissa Alice Chandler, Ellen Sturdy and Rebecca Webb.

The creative team behind the performance were Patricia Ham, Victoria Roberts and Amanda Graham. Sound was by Michael Marshall, stage lighting by Brian Tagg assisted by Gerald Ham, and costumes by Patricia Ham assisted by Cath and Victoria Roberts and Amanda Graham.

The official sponsors of the show were R. Millard and Son of Springfield Road, Highbridge.

“Their support has been fantastic,” said Patricia. “I’m also overwhelmed by the support of local traders who have again offered raffle prizes – Material Needs and Kyffins to name but a few.”
