Mother Goose

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s that time of the year again (ohhh yes it is) when JOHNSTONE PHOENIX THEATRE GROUP host their annual pantomime. This year’s family friendly show follows the story of ‘MOTHER GOOSE’ which is being staged in their temporary home of the new Tweedy Hall in Linwood on 22nd November – 29th November 2014 including matinees both saturday’s.

Audience’s will be transported to the village of ‘Sweet Content’ where Mother Goose lives with her son’s Jack and Silly Billy. Its a tale about good versus evil with lots of great gags and laughs along the way. You’ll get to meet all your favourite panto characters including Priscilla the Goose, The Demon Queen and The Fairy.

The production is vibrant, slick and fast-moving and we know it’ll have young and older audiences boo-ing the baddies and cheering the goodies.
