Panto beanstalk planted in Warkworth
What do a calculating cow, an evil giant and the Prime Minister have in common?
To find out the answer, you’ll need to be at the Warkworth Memorial Hall on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 12, 13 and 14 for the village drama group’s annual panto.
Produced and directed by Antonia Hoskins and Gary Brown, this year’s pre-festive offering is ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ which promises to be action-packed, entertaining, fun-filled and punctuated by plenty of music and dance.
Amongst the array of odd-ball characters are Buttercup the mathematical cow, the evil giant Blunderbore and the Prime Minister: any resemblance to David Cameron – physical or emotional – being highly unlikely.
The familiar tale of the idle boy Jack who gets conned into flogging the family cow for a few beans has been given a comic makeover by Damian Trasler, David Lovesy and Steve Clark.
To see how their tale unfolds with the help and hindrance of Dozy Den, Princess Rose, Dame Trott, Fairy Beansprout, the destitute King, Poison Ivy and a host of others, get your ticket for the panto from N&F Young of Amble, Warkworth Village Store or on-line via www.warkworthdrama.org.uk They cost £6 for adults and £4, children.
The performances begin on all three days at 7.30pm. There is also a matinee on the Saturday, starting at 2.30pm.
