It’s opening night for a glimpse into Nelson’s fairytale world — Bedtime Rhymes Pantomime.
Written by Nelson local, Lisel Forst (the villain in Sherlock Holmes, 2012) and directed by her husband Jeff Forst (Nelson Youth Theatre), Bedtime Rhymes Pantomime takes all the characters from Mother Goose and brings them to life on the streets of a nursery rhyme version of Nelson.
Bedtime Rhymes Pantomime also features music direction by Sydney Black and choreography by Mackenzie Hope.
Tuesday was the dress rehersal for the show, which features 55 local performers including Darren Fuss, Zak Higgins, Eli Geddis, as Mother Goose, Ty Wright, Marleah Staten, Heather Gingras, Anna Bundschuh, Brian Munroe and more.
