Not yet… but soon!

Sadly we won't be putting on a show this Christmas. We had looked at doing a shorter pantomime, or a musical revue of past shows, but with the restrictions still in place for the hall audience numbers and the guidelines for covid safe rehearsals for amateur performances, it would have meant the show would not be up to our usual standards.
 
We will be back in the summer, revisiting a little war torn cafe in France and we are really looking forward to putting on our biggest panto yet for our 30th show in Christmas 2022.
 
We will miss entertaining you all this Christmas, and hearing your laughter and applause, but we will see you soon, and as a certain French café owner would say........à bientôt.

Jack and his Amazing Beanstalk - Tickets on Sale!

WE'RE OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT!

Jack and his Amazing Beanstalk Poster

When Jack takes their odd looking cow to be milked he meets Jill - but what happens next is not quite what they expect. When his mum Dame Lumber finds out she tells them they have to sell the cow or they'll have nothing to eat!  Unfortunately this doesn't quite go Jack's way either and all he ends up with is a handful of beans.

Meanwhile, Baron Landscape the nasty land developer, wants the whole forest for himself so he can chop down all the trees and evict all the villagers.  Will he succeed? Plus there are all those strange noises that keep coming from the clouds - legend has it there's a giant up there!

With loads of laughs, and a script specially written by our very own Culter Theatre Club members, this show promises to be a hilarious clamber up the beanstalk for all ages!
