Magdalene Players perform new pantomime
Amateur drama group the Magdalene Players are set to perform a brand new pantomime.
Arthur and the Knights of Camelot, penned by group members David Ashton and Daniel Hewitt, is a fairytale pantomime with a difference.
It features all of the favourite characters from the famous Arthurian legend, transported to the world of pantomime and double-entendres.
Original jokes, one-liners and musical numbers all combine to create the new piece of theatre.
The group have described the task as challenging, but soon found the classic Sword in the Stone story was easily adaptable for the pantomime genre.
Dan Ashton, co-writer, says: "We knew all the right ingredients were there in the famous tale.
"It was just a case of throwing in the right gags and a few extra knockabout characters. It's been fantastic to see it come to life."
Guy Johnson, director, said: "We've had a lot of fun putting this show together and I can't wait for opening night.
"I have been telling everyone I meet that it's another chance to see a world premiere on your doorstep courtesy of the Magdalene Players, so please do come and support some local theatre."
The Magdalene Players have been performing in the borough since 1980 and perform pantomimes, musicals and drama.
