IT’S pantomime time again at Rugby Theatre - oh yes it is!

This year Rugby Theatre is presenting the enchanting tale of Mother Goose, which is guaranteed to be a fun-filled show for all the family.

Join Mother Goose Edna, and her two sons Jack and Billy, as they befriend the magical goose Priscilla who has a secret that could put an end to all of Mother Goose’s worries.

However, Mother Goose is not satisfied with her lot and longs for beauty and fame. Knowing this, the wicked Demon Discontent tempts Mother Goose to the magical Fountain of Youth.

But there is a price to pay for beauty – in exchange Priscilla will be lost forever!

So join the happy band as they journey to Gooseland to rescue Priscilla, boo the wicked Demon Discontent, laugh at the antics of Mother Goose as she bakes a cake for the party, scream in the scary Evil Forest and cheer the Fairy Happiness as she desperately tries to bring about the longed-for happy ending.

Mother Goose is traditional pantomime for all the family packed with audience participation, lavish costumes, dance routines and much laughter and mirth along the way.

Heroes, villains, slapstick, dance, magic, song and just plain silliness all ensure an extravaganza of fun and laughter, culminating in the sing-along song sheet and a spectacular finale.

Mother Goose will be on stage at Rugby Theatre in Henry Street from this Saturday until Sunday, January 15.

Performances start at 7.30pm Monday to Friday and on Saturdays and Sundays there will performances at 2 and 5.30pm. For tickets call the box office on (01788) 541234.
