Stonewall to benefit from charity panto on the run
A London-based gay and lesbian running group will perform a Christmas pantomime to raise money for the LGBT organisation Stonewall.
On January 13 London Frontrunners will stage their A Christmas Carol at the Drill Hall in Chenies Street.
The pantomime features a quartet of gay and lesbian ghosts who are freed at a séance and bring chaos in Scrooge’s hotel on Christmas Eve.
The four are washerwoman Helena Handcart, her son Tiny Tim, who wants to find out who his father is, Scrooge’s celebrity niece Kelly, and Bob Cratchit, who wants someone to help roast his nuts.
London Frontrunners’ show was written by the same team of Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper and is directed by Gary Wright, an actor, dancer and director who appeared with many international ballet companies and in West End musicals.
Last year, the gay and lesbian running club wrote and performed a gay, running-themed version of Cinderella.
Through social events and the annual “Pride Run”, London Frontrunners has raised more than £11,000 for charity in the last few years.
