On Saturday 2nd July Encore Theatre Company hosted a fundraising event at the Magnet Pub in Castleford. On this occasion it was a Hog Roast social with a disco, karaoke, competitions and an impromptu freestyle dance solo!
The evening was the perfect way to relax and catch up after our successful run of ‘Bad Girls’ recently. Things are pretty hectic on the run up to show week so it was nice to just sit back, recall the events of the previous month and look back on a job well done. The hog roast sandwiches went down a treat, before everyone (who wanted to!) could burn it off on the dance floor.
One young man who certainly wanted to was five year old Lukas Heins who took to the
dance floor not once, but twice, with off-the-cuff dance performances which ended with rapturous rounds of applause and everyone on their feet!
The kids were set a drawing challenge during the evening, and were asked to obtain marks for their works of art from each of the tables in the room. Congratulations to Imogen Maher for her winning picture.
Sue Sheppard won a bottle of whisky for rolling her pound
coin across the dance floor and leaving it closest to the bottle at the other side, this despite stiff competition from Steve Robinson and some less successful attempts from other participants (myself included!)
Congratulations to all the raffle winners and thanks to those who donated the fantastic prizes!
Thanks also to Michelle and staff for the catering and superb hog roast, and to DJ John for the music and organising the other activities throughout the night.
Finally, a big thank you to the friends and family of Encore members who attended this fundraiser. I’m sure our members who were unable to attend will appreciate that without support from these people at events like this, they would not have the same opportunities to perform with us on stage.
