AN EXCITING pantomime that offers singing, dancing and plenty of jokes is coming to Newport Village Hall.

The Newport Amateur Theatrical Society will be performing their annual pantomime extravaganza on February 6, 7 and 8. This year the talented group of actors will be bringing the story of Pinocchio to the stage.

This hilarious adaptation of the story about a wooden puppet who wants to be a real boy will have the audience laughing, singing along and shouting 'He's behind you'.

And for the first time the theatre group will be performing with the Footlights Theatre Dance School. With their exciting routines and sharp choreography the dance group would be a welcome addition to any pantomime.

All performances will be held at Newport Village Hall. On Friday 6 the show will start at 7.30pm, on Saturday there will be a matinee at 2.30pm and an evening performance 7.30pm, and on Sunday there will be one performance at 2.30pm.

Tickets are available from Newport Post Office, Newport Village Stores and Saffron Walden Tourist Information. They are priced at £5.50 adults and £4.50 for concessions (under 17s and over 60s).
