Red Riding Hood returns

BUCKHORN Amateur Theatrical Society celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and the pantomime at Buckhorn Weston village hall sees a return to the story where it all started, back in 1994 – Red Riding Hood – on 16th and 17th February.

The village may have seen many changes over the ensuing three decades – the village hall didn’t exist then, and that first panto, written by Sue Bradder and Janet Potter, was staged in nearby Kington Magna – but some of the faces will still be familiar.

This year’s director and writer Allison Barfoot was formerly a dashing principal boy and it’s good to know that she is helping to keep the village’s panto tradition alive.

The cast this year is led by Alanda Phillips as Red Riding Hood, Rupert Dyke as the Dame, Mother Red, Nick Brooke as Grandma Nick Brooke and Heather Meldrum as the Wolf.

Tickets are on WEGOTTICKETS, search for Red Riding Hood.

Pictured are the Dame, Grandma and Mrs Donut from the council, and three lumberjacks limbering up for the action.
