Kicking off the summer holidays is the hilarious adaptation of Goldilocks and the Three Bears at Thornton Little Theatre. Come along on Friday 5 August as Magic Light Productions tell the story of how Goldilocks and the three bears save the future of her Grandma Gertie’s circus. 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. There is only one person who can save the day - Goldilocks! However she is not alone, she is accompanied on her adventure by Silly Billy 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 starts at 2pm and tickets are £8 each or £30 for a family of four.
Next up on Tuesday 23 August is Marty MacDonald’s Toy Machine at Marine Hall, Fleetwood, featuring the voice of CBeebies’ Justin Fletcher and Nicole Davis as Pongo the Pig and Molly-Moo the Cow. Everyone at Marty MacDonald’s Farm is delighted with the special delivery that’s arrived – the toy machine that makes all of the toys in the world! But then they realise that Crafty the Crow has been up to mischief and it shouldn’t really be there at all. Worse still, the machine has stopped working, so they need to fix it before the Toymaker comes to get it back.
Join Marty, Sally the Scarecrow, Pongo the Pig, Molly-Moo the Cow and Sheena the Sheep in a fun, musical, interactive adventure to save the day, repair the toy machine and give the world back its toys.
With a colourful farmyard and host of lovable puppet characters, Marty MacDonald’s Toy Machine is a brand new family show particularly suitable for 2 – 7 year olds, from the team who brought you last year’s sell-out hit show Marty MacDonald’s Farm. The show starts at 2pm and tickets are £9 each.
As well as two great shows, this year for the first time ever, Marine Hall is looking for children to appear in their Christmas pantomime! Children aged between 7 and 16, boys and girls, who are all singing and dancing with lots of personality are invited to audition to join the chorus. The auditions will take place on Thursday 18 August at Marine Hall and the panto is on 8 – 11 December.
