A BLOCKBUSTER show mixing a story set in France with a traditional pantomime comes to a village hall next week.

Cold Ashby Millennium Players and producer Sarah Favell have joined forces to create Jack and The Three Musketeers.

The show combines Jack and the Beanstalk with The Three Musketeers to make an unusual show.

Wendy Smith, who has designed the costumes, said: “Our director decided to do this show because it was the funniest script we had to choose from.

“It is also a script which talks about local things so we can adapt it and put some jokes about Cold Ashby into it.”

She paid tribute to the strong cast who have worked on it for the past three months.

Wendy added: “There are around 40 characters in the show and we have got 24 people in the cast. There is a lot of doubling up in the cast.

“They have all really enjoyed working on the show. It is going to be a traditional fun pantomime with good heroes and a wicked cardinal. I hope people will come and see a great show.”

Jack and The Three Musketeers will be performed at Cold Ashby Memorial Village Hall from 7.30pm on Friday, February 4 and Saturday, February 5. There will also be a matinee on Sunday, February 6 starting at 3pm.

Admission for adults is £6 and for children is £3. There will also be a bar available.
