The panto has been written by the local award winning writing duo Rob Fearn and Leo Appleton, who are also taking part in the show, as Rumpelstiltskin and Leo as the dame, Madam Miller.

Producer Rosie Withers has been away from directing this society for a number of years and Leo, the society’s chairperson, said: “Rehearsals this year have been lots of fun but you always know you’re in for a good show when Rosie is directing. She expects nothing but the best and generally gets it.

“Although this is a little done fairy story of wicked imps and magic spells, it still has all the elements of a great panto and is full of the usual jokes and songs which Our Lady’s do so well."
