Paying the minimum wage is acceptable. [Oh no it isn’t!]

Posted on | Posted in Recruitment

With Christmas festivities in full swing, the people of Basingstoke are really getting into the spirit of the season; twinkling fairy lights, jolly giant snowman and sparkling reindeer have turned the town into a glittering winter wonderland, Festival Place is bustling (and so are the car parks!) and of course many of us will enjoy a belly laugh (or two) at the local pantomime.

But, wait! We’ve heard through the grapevine that there’s a new amateur dramatics company in town for the panto season, certain to give Sleeping Beauty at The Anvil a run for its money.

Pretty young Kyra works for her evil Stepmother who only pays her minimum wage [BOO, HISS]. Whilst her ugly step-sisters get to enjoy time-off, poor Kyra is forced to work late (without pay) on Christmas Eve [AHH].

Will Kyra get to meet her handsome ‘Basingstoke’ prince before the clock strikes twelve? You’ll have to watch and see…

The team at Wote Street People wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Have a good one from

Meta, Maxine, Kyra, Madeline, Tracy and Matt

Big thanks to Taylor Papworth for filming our panto!
