This spectacular pantomime, based on an English legend involving real people, was beloved by Victorian audiences and has now been adapted for the 21st century by that master of pantomime Norman Robbins. With vengeful fairies, knock-about bailiffs, a romantic leading lady and a handsome Principal Boy, plus the outrageous Dame, all the ingredients are here for a wonderful evening's entertainment!

The dame and his sidekick appeared on David Chadderton's Theatre Show on Canalside Community Radio (102.8FM) talking about the panto on 2nd December 2010.
