Youlgrave Pantomime – Tickets now on sale

PUSS IN BOOTS – the purrrfect pantomime for all the family

**** Sorry, both matinee performances @ 2:15pm are now full – we still have tickets for all other performances ****

PussonlycompBack for our 56th season of panto, this year we are bringing you hilarity, hijinks and maybe just a little romance with the popular pantomime Puss In Boots, starting on 31st January 2018. Once again we have ten performances including two Saturday matinee performances.

Jack the Miller’s son has just inherited a cat. But this cat is no ordinary feline. And with the help of a charming fairy, Puss in Boots develops the power of speech; soon Puss helps our humble hero, Jack, on his way to fame and fortune. However, between Jack and fortune lies a terrible ogre, a wicked fairy, Jack’s bumbling, not-too-bright, brothers, as well as some rather large rabbits, not to mention a King and Queen in search of a wealthy son-in-law.

This show will be packed with every ingredient for the perfect traditional family pantomime. Expect larger-than-life characters, loads of laughs, a dose of slapstick, modern music, beautiful costumes, stunning dance moves, and of course…… plenty of heroes to cheer and baddies to boo!

The Goose is Loose!

In a bid to sabotage this year’s panto, Sir Ferdinand Fox – a very bad fox – has kidnapped EDITV1Priscilla, the golden egg laying Goose, and is holding her captive somewhere in the village.

We’re desperate to get her back in time for the panto, Mother Goose which starts on 28th January, and so we need everyone’s help to find her. Some of the lucky people who help us find Priscilla will win a free Ice Cream when they come to see the show.

Here’s how you can help: Sir Ferdinand has left two clues to where he has hidden her. All you need to do is solve the clues then go to either of the locations that you think Priscilla is being held, and just leave your name and contact details in the competition box to enter the prize draw.

Location 1: Priscilla is having a FEAST in Youlgrave.

Location 2: Priscilla has gone DUTCH in Pommie.

We’re extremely grateful for everybody’s help, so as a reward we’ll be providing five of the lucky people who help us locate Priscilla with two free Ice Cream vouchers each when they come to see the panto. The draw will be on 26th January 2015.

Thanks for your help and good luck!
