Heacham’s Pocahontas Players were all set to reveal what all your favourite pantomime characters get up to after the season has finished when a strange twist of fate causes the drama to continue.

The group’s next original production, Summer Holiday: The Panto, will take to the stage at Heacham Public Hall next weekend for four performances.

Jim Race, of the Players, said: “Have you ever stopped to think what happens to all the pantomime characters at the end of the season? No, I suppose not.

“Well, sit back and enjoy the Pocahontas Players explanation of what happens to all the good characters and those bad characters, as they leave the theatre at the end of a long, hardworking season.”

He added: “The goodies get to take a well deserved rest, whilst the baddies need to find alternative employment, but by the fickle finger of script writing fate they all end up at the same holiday destination.”

The Players are asking for audiences to come along to cheer on your favourite characters as the evil Wicked Witch tries to turn the goodies into baddies with the help of The Snow Queen, King Rat, The Big Bad Wolf and those Ugly Sisters.

Head to Heacham Public Hall to see if Aladdin, Peter Pan, Jack, Sinbad, Prince Charming, Dick and his cat, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood, Snow White and not forgetting those Seven Dwarves, can win the day.

However as with all pantomimes, not all goes according to plan as an interfering jobsworth seems set to spoil everyone’s fun and there seems to be a problem with the Fairy, who goes POOF.

Find out what happens at the show when it coes to the stage at 7.30pm on January 23, 24 and 25, with another matinee showing at 2pm on January 25.

Tickets cost £6.50 for adults and £4 for children under 12, and are available from Janice Curtis on 01485 570402 and Jim Race on 01485 571267.
