The plot is based on the island of Heacham and a golden egg that is being sought by Moana.

Script writer Ben Parr said: "After two years without an opportunity to entertain the surrounding areas with grassroots theatre, the Pocahontas Players are proud to present a pantomime for all ages.

"The aim is to bring cheer and laughter back into the heart of its adoring and supportive community.

"Their performance sees modern characters bringing traditional pantomime stories to all those that enjoy them.

"King TUI has had his magical EGG stolen by the evil they who must not be named, sending his kingdom into chaos. "He calls upon his daughter, Moana, and her trusted companion, Maui, to rescue the precious egg.

"As our adventurers travel through the kingdom of Heacham and it's surrounding areas, audiences will be enthralled with heartfelt ballads for the love interests, light hearted and silly humour throughout, as well as a starring role for their favorite adventurer, Dame Maui Waui.
