A POST-CHRISTMAS bonanza of festive theatre fun will be the perfect tonic to the New Year blues next week.

Littlehampton Musical Comedy Society is set to raise the curtains on this year’s traditional family pantomime, Mother Goose, which they hope will be worth a gander.

The show kicks off next Thursday, at the Windmill Entertainment Centre, in Littlehampton, from 7.30pm.

It follows the tale of Mother Goose and her family who all become very wealthy thanks to a magic goose called Candy.

The bitter Mother Goose connives with a bad fairy to give up the magical Candy in exchange to turn her ugliness into beauty.

Shocked, Mother Goose’s son, Billy, backed by his sister, Jill, her fiancée Jack and Virtue, the fairy queen, sets off on a wacky journey to save Candy.

The production promises to be a lively and colourful affair with an eclectic range of music, from 1950s rock ‘n’ roll, to contemporary tunes from Disney musical, Frozen, and chart-topping Take That stars Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow.

There will also be a selection of West End hits, along with plenty of slapstick humour,

Tickets for the event are £13 for adults, £12 for concessions, with party rates available on demand.

Bookings can still be made from the society box office by calling 01903 730775. If unmanned, please leave a message and someone from the society will respond to it.

Performances run from January 15 and 16 at 7.30pm, January 17, at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, with the final shows on January 18, at 1pm and 5pm.
