It’s panto time at last in Thame - oh yes it is!

Thame Players present Beauty and the Beast, by Ben Crocker, on December 7-9 and 12-16, at 7.45pm with matinees at 2pm and 5.30pm, and there are only a few tickets left.

Beauty and the Beast is extremely funny, full of action and great fun to perform. Seeing Beauty with her Prince, Malabelle the wicked witch turns him into a Beast and so the tale begins.

With many hurdles to overcome Beauty is finally reunited with her Prince and all is right with the world.

A pantomime for all the family to enjoy at Christmas, with classic characters such as the Dame, the Principal Boy and a female blacksmith this is a traditional pantomime with a modern twist.

Ben Crocker comes from a theatrical family and is the son of actor and pantomime script writer, John Crocker.

He saw his first pantomime at the age of three and has been hooked ever since.

During the last 25 years Ben has directed over 70 professional productions, including 20 pantomimes. Ten years ago, he started writing the scripts which contain all his knowledge, expertise and love of the art form.

They are very funny, fast moving and true to the original story.

The panto is at The Players Theatre, Nelson Street, Thame. Tickets £10 with £9 concessions from Spear Travels on 01844 217228 or online at
