Take a gander at this family favourite

New director Chris Badham is looking forward to giving audiences a good laugh in his pantomime production of Mother Goose.

“I love a good giggle,” he said, “so it’s brilliant to get the chance to take the audience on a trip inside my head, to show them my bonkers sense of humour and hopefully to make them laugh as much watching it as we have laughed rehearsing it.”

Ria Westhead from Chesterfield plays Jill, girlfriend of Jack, in the show by Handsworth & Hallam Theatre Company at Sheffield’s Montgomery Theatre, from January 27 to 30. For tickets, call 07586 293546 or email: hhtctickets@live.co.uk
