Fairy story fun for all

Meanwhile in another part of the town the Evil Ringmaster of a rival circus is planning on kidnapping the bears and making his circus the best in town.
A spokesman said: “There is only one person who can save the day - Goldilocks! However she is not alone, she is accompanied on her adventure by Muddles and some of their puppet friends.
“Will they save Gertie’s circus and defeat the Evil Ringmaster?
“This new dazzling pantomime-style show of this classic story is magically brought to life with amazing sets, stunning costumes, magic, illusion, special eﬀects, song, dance, puppets and an abundance of laughter with a fabulous cast of characters.”
The show stars Libby Edwards as Goldilocks, Steve Bloor as Muddles, Stuart Loughland as Grandma Gertie, Jay Beadle as The Spirit of the Circus, Hannah Prosser as The Evil Ringmaster and from the Chuckle Brothers live theatre shows Safre’s Magic Light Puppets.
