It’s that time of year again, oh yes it is, and what better way to cheer up the winter gloom than by attending Wooler Community Panto Group’s 11th show, the pantomime, Cinderella Rockerfella?

A modern twist on an old favourite, Cinderella is upstaged by her stepsisters and stepmother, but with help from Buttons and a particularly glamorous troupe of fairies, she will go to the ball.

This year the group has again been fortunate to borrow some exceptionally stunning costumes from the Northumberland Theatre Company, which will make this production particularly colourful and eye-catching.

With lots of catchy tunes and dance routines performed by the young and not so young of Wooler and district, and featuring Wooler 1st Baden Powell Scouts, the pantomime is directed and choreographed by David Wilson.

It comes alive on Friday, February 16 and Saturday, February 17.

There will be 7pm performances each day, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday.

All performances will take place at Glendale Middle School in Brewery Road, Wooler.

Tickets are £5 for adults and £3 for children aged four to 16. They are available now at Brand’s Newsagents, Mike Hope of Wooler Garage, Farm to Freeze in South Road and the High Street, and The Wool Shop, High Street.
