A Bocking-based drama club is delighted to return to the stage after two years of Covid-19 restrictions.

Members of the Bocking Theater Club started rehearsals for Dick Whittington on Zoom, battling WiFi outages and constant buffering.

As soon as the restrictions were lifted, they resumed in-person rehearsals and returned to the stage with director Margaret Surrey.

Award-winning drama club NODA has again been nominated for best pantomime in the region by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association for its previous production of Merlin the Pantomime.

Having already won this award twice in the past, the theater troupe is hopeful of being able to achieve a hat trick of recognition.

With a cast that spans from five to 75, their Dick Whittington pantomime promises to be filled with cream pies, sing-along songs, larger-than-life pantomime and a brave young hero for save the day.

The pantomime will be performed at Bocking Village Hall from February 16-19.

With two matinee performances for younger audiences and affordable admission prices, the Bocking Theater Club is hoping for sold-out performances across the board.

Tickets are available from Eatons Tea and Coffee House in George Yard and New Image in Church Street, Braintree, Essex.
