Mersea Island Players (MIPS)

MIPS proud to present their socially distanced short film from pantoland!
Filmed at the Mersea Island Community Centre (MICA), this script was tailor written about the centre and the panto characters which so often frequent it’s halls!
MICA is the home of the Mersea Island Players and the hub of the community, so with the centre suffering the enforced closures of 2020, like many other charities, we set about an alternative way to still put on a show and ensure we were able to support the MICA charity in lieu of our annual staged pantomime in January.

Please enjoy the panto and if you would like to make a donation:
