PLOCK­TON Am­a­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety has put on its third re­vived pan­tomime.

The club was re­vived in 2013 af­ter be­ing out of ac­tion for a num­ber of years, and this year mem­bers put on The Snow Queen, star­ring Sue Atkin­son in the ti­tle role and Greg Dob­son as Granny McGon­a­gall.

The Plock­ton Am­a­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety and its youth sec­tion, Plock­ton Am­a­teur Dra­matic Youth So­ci­ety (PADYS), came to­gether for this year’s per­for­mance, with 18 chil­dren and 10 adults in the cast and young­sters shar­ing parts across the per­for­mances.

Dur­ing the per­for­mance the Snow Queen stole young Kai so she could marry him and rule both the King­dom of Ice and the King­dom of Men. Granny and her friends, in­clud­ing Jack Frost and a troll, made the treach­er­ous jour­ney to save him.

The club put on four per­for­mances over three days with pro­ceeds go­ing back in to help pay for cos­tumes, scenery and props for com­pet­i­tive pro­duc­tions, as well as help­ing with travel ex- penses for com­pe­ti­tions and buy­ing lap­tops and T-shirts for the youth sec­tion.

Sarah Bruce from the so­ci­ety said: ‘This year we have had to have ex­ten­sive re­pairs done to our stor­age barn and meet­ing room which have cost us a lot of money, so we’re hop­ing this will be suc­cess­ful enough to put us back in a fi­nan­cial com­fort zone.’
