When the curtains closed on the final performance in January 2013 of 'Jack and the Beanstalk', St. Giles Pantomime Society had performed its 64th annual pantomime all of which have been staged in the Assembly Room at Pontefract Town Hall. The Society was formed in 1949 by the then Vicar of St. Giles Church, The Reverend Jack Peel, who stated in his article in the 1974 Silver Anniversary programme â€œthere were many reasons for starting the Pantomimes, the principle being to draw people of all ages and differing abilities into a â€˜Splendid fellowshipâ€™ as he called it. It is one of the best clubs you can find. Some people sing, some dance, some play music, but that is not all, you must always remember those who do stage work, stage sound, stage lighting, make costumes, help with make-up, book seats and do the multiple other jobs. There may be a crowd of performers onstage, you can be sure there are just as many behind the scenesâ€. Everyone enjoys it and the performance week is only the climax of weeks and maybe months of preparation. The Society has gone from strength to strength over the years since 1950 (the last 6 years has seen the cast performing to sold out audiences) bringing live theatre to Pontefract and the surrounding district by way of the annual pantomime and occasional Summer productions.
