Great Ellingham Pretenders set for Sinbad panto

Sinbad the Sailor and a host of colourful characters will be taking to the stage for the sixth pantomime production by the Great Ellingham Pretenders.

All the nice girls love a sailor, but will Sinbad capture the heart of the Caliph's daughter, the beautiful princess Shaheen?

Of course Al Capone has to mussel in, he too wants the hand of the princess and he has the help of the evil genie Ali Gator. Princess Shaheen will need all the power she can muster from the good genie Ali Kazam if she is to marry her beloved swash buckling sailor. But before Sinbad can claim his prize he has been ordered by the Caliph to bring back a Rok, a giant bird. Not to be confused with Prunella, the Dame. Sinbad sets sail with his trusty crew Mustapha Kip and Abu Meringue.

There are songs to be sung, dances to be danced and boos to be shouted in this traditional pantomime that promises plenty of magic, excitement, love, and adventure.

Sinbad will be running at Great Ellingham Recreation Centre, near Attleborough, on January 19, 20 and 21 with two performances on Saturday, January 21.

Raffle tickets will be available in support of the Star Throwers cancer support charity and East Anglia's Children's Hospices. Panto tickets are available from Julie Matthews on 01953 456180 and are priced at �6 for adults and �4 for children under 16s.
