Little Bo Peep was an amateur performance by arrangement with Samuel French Limited and has been Produced and Directed by Kays veterans Ann Mayor and Susan Sanderson.
Little Bo Peep looks after Fanny Fairacre’s flock of sheep on Fairacre Farm. The malevolent Lady Sneering is jealous of her relationship with Fanny’s son Freddie, so she instructs the magician Mefisto – from Cindy Sparkle’s travelling show – to make the pretty shepherdess disappear. Meanwhile Fanny’s gormless farmhand Wally has fallen for the glamorous Cindy. Soon they all find themselves banished to the nightmarish ‘Land of the Vanished’, with no apparent hope of return. Paul Reake’s riotous retelling of the well-known nursery rhyme features all the traditional pantomime elements as well as a travelling show, magic, dancers and a highly talented cow!
We would also like to congratulate the Swan Theatre Worcester on reaching it’s 50th anniversary.
