Three groups of brownies and rainbows came to watch the show on Saturday afternoon and an intrepid group of brownies came on Friday evening too.

The children really enjoyed joining in with the requisite cheering, booing and singing.

Producer Ian Cowley said: “The cast and crew had a great time, and the audiences were brilliant – it was clear that those on stage were feeding off the audiences’ energy and really giving it everything.

“We’re hoping that we can sell the last tickets for this weekend’s performances to let as many people as possible see the show and experience the wonder of local pantomime.
