Christ­mas pan­tomime in pro­duc­tion

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Pu­taruru The­atre Play­ers Christ­mas pro­duc­tion is well into re­hearsals.

The Christ­mas pan­tomime Red Rid­ing Hood by fa­mous New Zealand play­wright Roger Hall is due to be staged at the Kens­ing­ton at the end of the month.

Di­rected by Toko­roa’s John and Vickey Ten Velde the pan­tomime has a dis­tinct New Zealand flavour and is rel­e­vant due to the fact that the script was writ­ten a few years ago.

Based around the well-know story of the same name and set very close to Pu­taruru, it con­tains the usual pan­tomime char­ac­ters, an evil per­son, a con­fused wolf, a com­edy duo, a panto dame, a hero and other colour­ful char­ac­ters.

Add to this mix plenty of catchy songs. The show will run for two weeks from Novem­ber 23.
