The tradition of panto is alive and kicking in Bedford (oh yes it is!) with not one, not two, but three shows to choose from.
Kicking off proceedings is the Quarry Theatre’s production of Hansel and Gretel.
It promises to be a fun-filled, sugar-fuelled, family-friendly pantomime adventure that reminds us ALL not to take candy from strangers (even if they wow you with a fabulous song and dance number).
The show is a new take on an old favourite, with tasty tunes, magical mayhem and colourful characters (including a seven foot yeti) it’s simply not to be missed
Saturday 14 (noon & 3pm), Sunday 15 (noon & 3pm), Wednesday 18 (10am), Friday 20 (6pm) and Sunday 22 December (noon).
Tickets: Children £10, Adults £12.50 (Concessions £11.50; Family £42.50)
