Six ready for late panto fun
2:00pm Thursday 20th February 2014 in News
AN am-dram group are set to don their costumes for the first time in nearly two years to put on a spectacular pantomime, despite only having six core actors.
Entertainers, based in Harwich, will be performing an adaptation of The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg called Goose Joose at the Park Pavilion in Barrack Lane Dovercourt on February 22.
The show tells the story of Dame Daffodil protecting her beloved farm animals from an evil wizard taking over the world and her adventures to try and stop him.
Performer Andrew Fletcher, who plays the Dame, believes the panto will be a favourite with children and adults alike, despite being a little bit later than usual.
“The group had a look at this show and thought it would be something different to try and perform because it has not been done so many times that the audience are already bored of the story,” he said.
The Entertainers who have been running for about 30 years, will be performing at 3pm and 7pm and entrance is free, however spectators will be asked to donate if they have a good time.
The money raised will be split between the Harwich and District Community Association which runs the Park Pavilion and the Harwich and District First Responders.
