The Hurst Children’s Theatre Group presents…

It’s almost time for the Hurst Children’s Theatre Group’s annual Pantomime – oh yes it is! Just what we need to fill the void left after Christmas and cheer us up in a cold and wet January!

A visit to the brand new Eric Morecambe Centre to see HCTG perform will certainly lift the spirits.

BABES IN THE WOOD is a traditional family Pantomime. It’s full of great songs, dancing and a wonderful script with laughs for all ages. The cast is made up of over 100 local children ranging in age from 3 to 18. The older children take the Principal roles, whilst the littlest ones are Robin Hood’s lookouts ‘the Twiglets’ – who will steal your hearts for sure!

As always, what you get is a show that beats professional efforts hands down for charm and, dare one say it, the X factor.

For those unfamiliar with the story, it is very simply a Hansel and Gretel meet Robin Hood fable. There’s Doreen the Demon (and her apprentice Grot), a male fairy (Fairy Nuff), Maid Marion, the Merry ‘Things’ and of course, the Sheriff of Nottingham, to give it that Pantomime pizzazz.

Jonas Hurst and his troupe have been producing Pantomimes in Harpenden for 15 years. It is a tried and tested recipe with many devotees returning year after year for fun and entertainment. If you’ve not tried it out yet, this might be the perfect NEW thing for your NEW year. Performances run from 26th Jan to 30th January.
