A SPLENDID show, the Wootton Bassett Light Opera Society's 16th pantomime, included a delightful horse (Ross Bathurst and Deanna Aspell) that cavorted around the auditorium as well as on stage, causing great fun.

The large cast of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundish Table ensured that some of the youngest members of the society had roles as action roamed from Camelot to Wiltshire, all within the confines of Royal Wootton Bassett Memorial Hall.

Director Hay Blake was assisted by Ross Bathurst, who wrote the quirky script.

The villain was the evil Mordred (Mark Richardson) who sought to dominate the world.

There were songs galore and eager participiation from the enthusiastic audiences.

King Arthur (Mike Davies) and Lancelot (Chalie Jackson) did their best to overcome evil. Merlin, played by Tammy Hollands, narrated the action. There was intrigue, scary moments and light relief from jesters.

Stuart Dark (alias Cabbage Face) assisted Mordred. Margaret Oakley was the fortune teller and of course everything turned out happily in the end.

Good costumes and sets enhanced the production.

The audience applause said it all.
