We bet you've been waiting for panto for ages.
What's that we hear you cry? "Oh no we haven't?!"
Haddenham Players haven't done a panto for a few years but we're back with a bang, or at least a clash of swords, with The Three Musketeers. The panto has been written by Edward Biddulph, who has written two other pantos for the Players (Robin Hood and Dick Whittington), and this one is the funniest yet.
We are very pleased that the Musketeers themselves are played by members of the Haddenham Youth Theatre senior group, Connor Spence, Celia Kessler and Haydn Feltham, and they battle it out with Cardinal Richelieu's guards from the junior group, Alisha and Lucy Oakley, Charlotte Moore and Seren Myall. That means the kids get to do all the hard work!
Tony Robinson (not that one) is playing the villain, Cardinal Richelieu, and gets to perform a Michael Jackson number in a long red dress. The dame, Madame D'Artagnan, will be played by Adrian Ripley who gets to sing the Marseillaise. Deborah Fraser, who played Queen Gertrude in the Fifteen Minute Hamlet, plays the beautiful but unfaithful Queen Anne and she gets to sing, er.. Queen.
Come and find out whether D'Artagnan will ever be allowed to be a musketeer, whether the evil Cardinal Richelieu and Milady de Winter will get the better of the Queen Anne and why the Duke of Buckingham (or is that Haddenham...) is dressed like a tin of shortbread.
Performances will be on Friday 31st January at 7.30pm and Saturday 1st February at 2.30pm and 7.00pm. The venue is Haddenham St Mary's First School on Aston Road.
Tickets, priced at £7 for adults and £4 for under-16s, are on sale now from the Box Office on 299596 and Blooming Fruity.
Special price for the Matinee: £6 adults and £4 under-16s
So it's ALL FOR ONE, AND TWO FOR £10!
Haddenham Players would like to thank Blooming Fruity for selling tickets for the umpteenth performance and we encourage you to buy some fruit and veg when you go to buy tickets. We'd also like to thank Haddenham St Mary's First School who have been exceptionally helpful and accommodating.
