               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Goldilocks And The Three Martians

    by Jackie Staite


Panto Script: 'Goldilocks And The Three Martians' by Jackie Staite

This is a delightfully different pantomime, combining the favourite, traditional elements with space-age excitement, original humour, and romance.

Dame Margery Daw has so many children she finds them hard to control – and, in any case, she has her eye on that nice, eccentric widower, Mr Merryweather. Her daughter, Goldilocks, goes for a picnic in the woods, and encounters not three bears but a spaceship. When the three Martians return to their space ship in Act 1, they do find their space cereal eaten, the spaceship controls tampered with and a broken chair!! She is inadvertently taken to Mars, where her new friend, Baby Martian, takes her to the grooviest place in the universe, The Mars Bar. Its barman, Maxibillion Megalux, mixes cocktails which can have the most amazing results!

Meanwhile, Goldilocks’ bossy sister, Polly, has found romance with the rather inept Cuthbert and Dame Marjorie Daw has found herself lumbered with two comic manservants, Archibald and Montmorency who insist upon “escorting the dear lady”. whether she wants them to or not.

Magicked to Mars by Fairy snowdrop, Goldilocks’ family heads off to rescue her, but Maxibillion’s cocktail has an extraordinary effect on Dame Marjorie while Cuthbert succumbs to the advances of Mars’s leading lady, Marzipan, (helped by a cocktail which makes men adore her for ever). Can Polly recue him in time? How can they all get back to earth? And what will become of the surprise visitor who arrives on a broomstick 

This pantomime has all the classic pantomime ingredients, romance, humour, magic, and audience participation; but it also has unusually different characters and a totally original story line.
