The United Church Dorchester

United in faith, united in action

Pantomime/Drama Group

We often put on a popular panto (or maybe something a little different from time to time) at the United Church in Dorchester to raise funds for a chosen charity and to give the community affordable family entertainment! The cast ages range from 11 to 70+ so  it is a great way to get people of all ages together and we use and encourage any talents - from acting and singing to backstage and technical support. Most of the shows are directed by Karen Whiter and Nigel Hewish with Heather Reed as Musical Director.

The 2018 review presented some of the most popular scenes from previous years - here are the Pirates in full flow:
In 2014, we presented a 'revue of music, song, sketches and fun - take a look at the "review of the revue" below.
You can also take a look at some of the scenes from other, earlier shows - enjoy!

What a Wonderful World!

 A revue of music, songs, sketches and fun…..






Up in the air, down to earth and all at sea, the Pantomime Players travelled far and wide to bring us a new seasonal entertainment that showed off their considerable talents, musical, comical and fanciful.

Silly sketches, serious songs and sweet stringed instruments all combined to present a revue that featured new and established members of our  panto team all dressed in exotic costumes ranging from an octopus to a carrot -  yes really.

A pair of Peters, Clark and Jenner that is, brought the house down as a couple of saucy girls in a show that was produced by Karen Whiter and Nigel Hewish with Heather Reed leading the music.

With proceeds going to A’Rocha UK, a conservation charity, this hugely enjoyable show hit the spot with the enthusiastic audiences who sang along and joined in all the action.
