Vil­lage stage stars’ fi­nal prepa­ra­tions for show

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - It’s Panto Time -

Stars from Pluck­ley are busy putting the fin­ish­ing touches to their an­nual vil­lage pantomime, this year ti­tled The Princess and the Pearl.

The show is the vil­lage’s 29th panto pro­duc­tion and stars Jacky Boo­dle as Pinky Trot­ter, Anne Nel­son-Smith as Lav­ina Armitage-Shanks and Ger­ard Sigfrid as the Deadly Lurgy.

The story, set in the 1950s, fol­lows the princess on the hunt for her stolen neck­lace.

It has been a sad year for the group, who lost long-stand­ing mem­ber Mike Cowdry, who passed away in the spring of 2013. He was a mem­ber for 27 years and was well known for his per­for­mances as both dame and vil­lain.

Three per­for­mances of the show will be held in to­tal, on Fri­day, Jan­uary 24, at 7.30pm and Satur­day, Jan­uary 25, at 3pm and 7.30pm at Pluck­ley Vil­lage Hall.

Tick­ets cost £6 for the evening per­for­mances or £4 for the mati­nee and are avail­able from Gary Boo­dle at Pluck­ley Butch­ers or by call­ing Judy Pool on 01233 840280.
