Potterne panto team boldy go
Potterne Panto Group players blast off into the stratosphere this week with their annual offering at the village hall.
They have chosen an intergalactic subject for their yearly romp with A Space Oddity, subtitled It’s a Panto, Jim, But Not As We Know It.
Group chairman Jackie Sawyer said: “Having celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2010, we are starting our next quarter century with a space-themed pantomime, which includes references to popular sci-fi movies and TV programmes.”
Expect lots of jokes about Vulcans and Wookies as Captain Burke and the crew of the Starship Yesdear defend Planet Earth.
The crew meet a number of interplanetary characters along the way, halting to replenish with tea, medicinal compound and chocolate.
The panto opens tonight and runs tomorrow and Saturday at 7.30pm with a matinee on Saturday at 2pm. Tickets on sale at Potterne Post Office.
