Local, up-to-the-minute gags and the many surprising and original touches created by director Tom Scott, make this a winner.

The spectacular entrance of the wolf at the start of the matinee performance was too much for some younger members of the audience who had to be taken out. Sadly they missed a great show.

Rhian Gwyn returned to excel in the title role and as the woodland fairy, once again displaying a haunting soprano voice. She was well matched by Hazel Ross as the principal boy. Hartismere High School sixth-formers Tom Hagley and Sally Preston should do well if they choose to make their career in the performing arts judging by their performances as Boy Blue and Bo-Peep. Tim Hudson revelled in his characterisation of the Big Bad Wolf. Doubling as the greedy squire, Sir Jasper, he had to work hard to cope with his many quick changes of character.

The panto runs until Saturday January 4. Box office: 01379 870519.
