The village drama group’s panto begins with a huge royal celebration, explains Susan Edwards from the Players, made up of local amateur thespians from the area.
"The king and Queen of Muddleby on Marsh are finally blessed with a baby daughter.“The royal pages, Fetch and Carry, fail to deliver all the invitations for the princess’ christening, upsetting Bad Witch Hazel and her evil sidekick, Egor. In retaliation they bestow an evil curse on the princess, their spell set to kill her before she reaches her 16th birthday.”Can Good Fairy Lilac and her motley crew of trainee fairies stop the curse in its tracks?Leadenham Players invite you to bring the whole family along to cheer on good over evil, while enjoying the madness and mayhem of twists and toe-tapping tunes on a wild journey through the next 116 years.Susan says: “Come and meet our colourful cast! Watch out for the dame, who is not only the local school mistress, but royal nursemaid extraordinaire! Boo Witch Hazel and Egor, cheer Fairy Lilac and her crew!”
