The Bishopstoke Players present a fun family pantomime based on a beloved tale. Paul Reakes' Little Red Riding Hood will be performed at the Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from Wednesday January 24th till Saturday January 27th. The pantomime is inspired by the story of Little Red Riding Hood, but it has its own unique take on the tale and plenty of classic pantomime fun.
In the land of Pantovia trouble is afoot. The beloved Prince Rupert has vanished and the evil Count De Cash has taken over. A young girl is about to celebrate her birthday, where she expects she'll receive a red coat from her grandmother, but while the celebrations are underway she is kidnapped by the Count. Rescued by a dashing young stranger, Pantovia must try and solve the mystery of the missing Prince, banish Count De Cash from the castle, and save the land from the werewolf that roams through the woods at night.
It's a unique take on the story story, and like any good pantomime the audience it will require plenty of audience participation to "boo" and "hiss" at the baddies and help the goodies save the day.
The Bishopstoke Players first got started in 1939, when the Bishopstoke Young Leaguers Union was established and plays and performances were staged as fundraisers. They perform about three plays a year, and perform everything from pantomime to Shakespeare and other dramas.
