Burleys Wood in Crawley pulled out all the stops to put on a wonderful Christmas Panto for the residents.
Instead of hiring a production company the staff decided they would produce and star in their very own production of Cinderella with many volunteers who helped with costumes and props and scenery.
The main cast were:
Cinderella – Ela Visan
Buttons – Donna Culley
Step sister – Wan Nowakowski (Home Manager)
Step sister – Erika Szalacsi
Step mother – Alisa Medrano
Prince Charming – Raluca Petre
Fairy Godmother – Gabriela Caramelea
Narrator – Sam Miller
Staff who worked hard to learn their lines outside of work time, showing such commitment to the residents.
Many visitors came to see the performance and everything went to plan with some residents joining in and becoming actors, thoroughly enjoying the experience.
Home Manager, Wan Nowakowski, said, “I can’t thank everyone enough. The staff worked so hard to learn their lines outside of work time, showing such commitment to the residents.”
