Riverside Players’ production promises family fun, colourful characters and a few surprises

Dick Whittington is proving a sell-out at Newton Poppleford’s village hall.

The Riverside Players are staging the panto by prolific scriptwriter Alan Frayn, with all your favourite characters from previous years – although perhaps in a different guise.

Gavin Haines will be capably stepping into the boots of the dastardly King Rat, doing his best to spoil everyone’s fun.

Baz Breadmore will be cooking up a treat as Dolly Dumpling, while Stephen Knight will be ‘busy doing nothing’ as only he knows best as Idle Jack.

The principals will be complemented with an enthusiastic chorus of adults and children and, hopefully, some surprises.

The show continues until Saturday, but the tickets are all sold out.
