KING Cone has been kidnapped and the evil Queen Icicle is threatening to cancel Christmas - the only thing we know for sure is that the audience is in for a wild ride.

The Semar Players will be performing their pantomime, The Last Nowell, at the Katherine Semar Junior School on Ross Close, Saffron Walden.

The first show will be at 8pm on Friday January 23, followed by a 3pm matinee and a 7.30pm performance on Saturday.

Director Andy Long said: "The pantomime at Katherine Semar has been running for 15 years and it's always a very special event. There is a lot of community involvement with students, adults, and staff all taking part.

"The rehearsals are going really well and it promises to be a lot of fun. There is a real mix of music and dancing! One of the numbers we are doing that should go down well with the audience is Dancing Queen from Mamma Mia."

An excellent group of actors make up the entertaining cast of good guys, villains, pantomime dames and comedy characters. But can they find the kidnapped King Cone before the Queen carries out her terrible plan and cancels Christmas?

To find out, book tickets by calling the school on 01799 521120. Tickets are priced at £4.
