THEATRE-GOERS have been having a treat as a pantomime with a difference hit Marsden.
The fun show features an all-male cast and runs at the Parochial Hall until Saturday.
The pantomime, Little Dickie Whittington, is being staged by the popular Yorkshire Avalanche Dodgers. It opened on February 8.
The entire run sold out in just a few hours and the Marsden-based company is giving audiences a fun-packed show filled with their own unique brand of comedy.
For three decades the legendary group have been playing to packed houses. Members have performed 22 pantomimes, all of which have been written and produced by David Armitage.
Each year the shows raise cash for local charities and this show aims to increase the total raised to around £90,000.
Mr Armitage says his ambition is to reach show number 25, by which time the company should have raised £100,000 for village charities and projects.
Choreography for this year’s show is again by Doreen France, helped by Susan Gledhill.
Music has been arranged by Jeff Taylor.
Craig Ball of Slaithwaite is pianist and Duncan Matley provides drum accompaniment.
