Members of an amateur dramatics group spoke of their disappointment after vandals smashed a sign advertising their annual pantomime.
The Old Buckenham Players are set to take to the stage at the village hall, near Attleborough, from today for their latest production of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves.
But the drama group were left picking up the pieces of one of their advertising boards on the village green after it was pulled down and smashed on Friday .
Doug Baker, a member of the players, said he was disgusted by the act of vandalism, which left the volunteers �50 out of pocket.
Mr Baker said the 5x4ft sign was one of the group's main forms of advertising. But despite the incident, the pantomime had almost sold out.
'There is a lot of work that goes on with the panto and everyone does it for free. We were choked to see the sign smashed up like that,' he said.
