More pantomime fun from village volunteers

IT’S once again panto time in Pegswood – oh yes it is!

Following the success of Robin of Pegswood last year, a new production has been written and there will be four performances.

Little Red Riding Hood (but not as you know it) is being staged in a month’s time at Pegswood Community Hub on Longhirst Road and tickets will be available from the building from Monday.

In the show, nursery rhyme town is under attack from a werewolf and so the villagers appoint famed werewolf hunter Velma the Vampire to save them.

Will they manage to stop him with the help of Little Red Riding Hood and her mysterious friend?

This is a pantomime with something for everyone, full of songs and dances. It includes quite a few local references and the return of some catchphrases from last year.

The cast is made up of adult members of the hub and community and those who come along to the Pegswood Performing Arts children’s drama group.

The performances will take place on Friday, February 28 (7pm), Saturday, March 1 (2pm and 7pm) and Sunday, March 2 (2pm).

Tickets are priced £3 for adults and £2 for children and concessions. Family tickets – two adults and up to three children – are priced at £8. Tickets will only be sold in advance, they will not be available at the door.

An appeal has been made by the hub for people to help backstage with the scenery and props and for someone with media expertise to video each show.
