THE magical world of pantomime came alive for members of a South Tyneside arts group.
Members of the Arts 4 Wellbeing charity – which is based in Derby Terrace, South Shields – were given the chance to see this year’s Customs House pantomime, Cinderella.
The festive treat was organised by project manager Dave Wood, with the help of The Customs House director Ray Spencer.
It also gave members, who regularly host their own drama plays at the centre, the chance to learn more about acting.
Arts 4 Wellbeing offers people with mental health, learning and physical disabilities the chance to come together and unleash their artistic talents through painting, sculpting, acting, singing or music.
Mr Wood said: “We have been very fortunate that The Customs House has been so kind to give us tickets to the pantomime.
“The members love to come and see different shows, and they take what they see and implement what they learn into their own plays.
“But it’s not all about learning, it’s also to say thank you to our members for what they have achieved throughout the year.”
Cinderella kicked off on Thursday, November 28, and will run until Sunday, January 5.
It stars Natasha McGee as Cinderella and Steven Lee Hamilton as Prince Charming. The pantomime is directed by Ray Spencer.
