Oh yes they did impress residents – an annual care home pantomime brought lots of laughs in Chatteris.
The staff at The Gables donned their frilly costumes, wigs and extravagant make up to stage Aladdin.
"There were lots of laughs and forgotten lines," said Lorna Jones, activities coordinator.
"It was a great afternoon with residents and families saying how much they enjoyed it.
"We always had a very successful Christmas Fair with lots of visitors on Christmas Jumper Day."
