Pulham Players set for pantomime

A south Norfolk village hall will be turned into an Arabian scene next month for the Pulham Players' annual pantomime.

The village hall will be transformed into Pulhamph Markesh for the amateur dramatics group's very own version of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.

The pantomime has been specially written for the group by Jason Calvert, Jodie Goldsmith, Becka Jillings and Darryl Parr. The performances promise to be an adventure with a whole host of colourful characters, slapstick scenes, special effects and musical numbers.

The curtain goes up for five performances on Wednesday, January 12 to Saturday, January 15 starting at 7.30pm with a 2.30pm matinee performance on the Saturday.

Tickets are available from Sandra on 01379 676769 or visit Sam's Local Shopper.

The pantomime comes after Pulham Players recently received a �4,600 grant from the Norfolk Community Foundation Grassroots Fund.

The cash has been used to buy a staging kit, which will also be used by the Tasburgh Players and Bramrock Players as well as the village and primary school.
