               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.

We will be unable to fulfil any orders for printed scripts for the foreseeable future. Any orders placed will be cancelled and a refund made.
Orders for downloadable preview scripts and e-scripts are not affected.


Red Riding Hood

    by Richard Hills


A traditional pantomime set in the Tyrolean mountains where Maria (who wears a red riding hood) meets her Prince, is bewitched by a Witch, attacked by a Wolf, but finally saved by Fairy Twinkle. 

Interspersed throughout all of her adventures are the attempts by the dastardly Colonel Von Heinstien and his hapless henchpeople, Hans Knees and Bumpsy Daisy, to evict the gloriously gung-ho Gerty from her Inn because she hasn’t paid the rent for six years!
