GOLDILOCKS has a lot on her plate at Kenilworth’s Talisman Theatre.
This year’s Christmas panto is Goldilocks and the Three Bears, running from December 16 to 31, featuring three talking bears, a carnival facing bankruptcy and a runaway heiress whose dastardly guardian is intent upon swindling her out of her inheritance.
The bears are the star attractions of Sopia Semolina Sawdust’s carnival. When wicked guardian Gaspar Grey (Rob Jones) – aided and abetted by his gormless henchmen Swindle (Sharon Sully) and Filch (Billy Arnold) – kidnaps the bears in order to ruin the carnival and force Goldilocks (Sam Harris) into marrying him and so lose her inheritance, Sophie (Matt Baxter), Jocko (Paul Sully) and their fairground friends set off to rescue them from the deserted and haunted Deadwater Manor.
Promising plenty of laughs, song and dance, in the best panto tradition the goodies all live happily ever after and the baddies get their comeuppance.
