The Shoestring Players, Bakewell’s community pantomime company, are presenting a traditional pantomime for all the family to enjoy, pictured right.

The Players say: “Come along and see how Sarah the cook befriends Dick and their surprising encounter with the Sea Dame in her underwater world.

“See how Dick and Tommy the cat defeat the wicked King Rat and rid Old London Town of rats and win the hand of Alderman Fitzwarren’s daughter Alice.”

The show starts tonight and runs until Saturday. Performances start at 7.30pm and there will also be a 2.30pm Saturday matinee.

Tickets are on sale at The Bakewell Bookshop.

Hansel and Gretel, 
The Montgomery

The theatre’s Family Fun Friday treat tomorrow at 4.30pm will be Horse + Bamboo Theatre Company’s version of the classic fairytale.

With music and film, puppets and masks, Horse + Bamboo have cooked up a delicious treat of a show – described as “dark, chewy and delicious at heart, yet coated with a sprinkle of something light, sweet and zesty. Hansel and Gretel promises to be a feast for the senses.”
