Panto group return with Mother Goose

One of the many casualties of the Covid pandemic last year was the ever popular St Andrew’s Pantomime in Beeston, but the good news is that it will be back on stage in January.

The award winning amateur group will be staging a new production of Mother Goose, written by Ian Noble and produced by his wife Siobhan.

The story revolves around farmer Gertrude Goose, the most kind and generous person who is like a mother to the whole village – Mother Goose. But times are hard and despite her hard work the crops aren’t growing, the hens aren’t laying and the cows won’t give milk. She may have to sell the farm and ruthless property developer Cordelia Brassneck-Whinge has her eyes on it. Meanwhile in the underworld two fairies are taking on a bet with a demon …

Can Mother Goose save her farm? Will the fairies win their bet? There’s only one way to find out!

Shows will run from Saturday 15 to Saturday 29 January 2022 at St Andrew’s Community Centre, Old Lane in Beeston:
