BEWARE the big bad wolf as the Limelight Theatre presents their annual pantomime.

Little Red Riding Hood – or How the Wolf Always Gets Bad Press! – will take to the stage at the group’s Brookenby Theatre on Friday, December 16, at 7.30pm; Saturday, December 17, at 2.30pm; and Sunday, December 18, also at 2.30pm.

This twist on the traditional tale has been written by Martin Hare, who also plays the dame in the panto.

The three little pigs help in one of the tales, so Little Red Riding Hood can find true love in the most unusual way.

There are surprises along the way too, as you meet the Mayoress of Tealby and pay a visit to Old Macdonald’s Farm, as well as having plenty of fun with the Terrible Twins.

Grandma Hood is on hand to tell the stories and Mother Hood is there to create the mayhem.

With pigs and sheep, a fairy and a wood chopper’s assistant, they are bound to send the woodchopper off his rocker – but watch out for the big bad wolf. He may not be all he seems.

With plenty of audience participation and a quiz, there promises to be lots of fun for all the family.

This is the eighth pantomime production from the Limelight Theatre Group, which incorporates RATS, Rasen Amateur Theatrical Society, and next year will see them celebrate their tenth anniversary as a group.

Tickets for the pantomime cost £4 each, or £12 for a family of four, and are available from 01472 852952.
