Old Buckenham Players pantomime

Advance news of village panto
The New Year sees a first for the East of England, with Old Buckenham Players' production of Sleeping Beauty by John Bartlett. This 2009 adaptation of the classic fairytale has never been performed in East Anglia before.
The story of Sleeping Beauty is well known but this production, set 100 years after the fateful prick on the finger, gives a slightly different perspective of the story. With a combination of shadow puppetry and spells cast by the Good and Bad Fairies, the audience (and characters) are transported back and forth through the 100-year time span, putting together pieces of the puzzle in order to foil evil Carabosse's plan.
Audiences can expect 'laugh a second' scenes (including a rather messy one), not one but two dames, a gorilla, a horse and music with a blend of classic and modern chart hits. Sleeping Beauty will be performed at Old Buckenham Village Hall where there is a licensed bar, an interval raffle, choc ices and, most importantly, there is a chance for members of the audience to become a star for the night. The production dates are Thursday 17, Friday 18 and Saturday 19 January at 7.30pm with a matinee performance on Saturday 19 January at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced at £7 (and £4 for under 14s) and are available from Nuts and Bolts in Attleborough, Old Buckenham Post Office Stores or by calling 01603 810373.
