Little Bo Peep
written by Paul Reakes,
directed by Marilyn Dunbar.


Little Bo-Peep looks after Fanny Fairacre's flock of sheep on Fairacre Farm. The malevolent Lady Sneering is jealous of her romance with Fanny's son Freddie, so she instructs evil magician Mefisto — from Cindy Sparkle's travelling show — to make the pretty shepherdess disappear! Meanwhile Fanny's gormless farmhand Wally has fallen for glamorous Cindy. Soon they all find themselves banished to the nightmarish "Place of the Disappeared" - with no apparent hope of return .

The sheep on Fanny Fairacres farm are small and cuddly but thanks to the scheming Lady Sneering and the magic of the mighty Mafisto they are spirited away to the Land of the Disappeared. With the help of members of Cindy Sparkle's Circus, Bo-Peep and her friends go to the mysterious land and the sheep are rescued. But what becomes of the nasty Mafisto and who really saves the day?

Our pantomime this year has been a lot of fun to direct and I would like to welcome Vince, Nick and John to their first panto experience with the Company and my brilliant junior chorus who have worked very hard. So sit back and enjoy the fun and if you see any sheep wandering around do let us know!
