A quite Village Hall Rehearsal turns into chaos!

An overbooked village hall leads to hilarious confusions!

As the locals arrive for their various activities, they suddenly find themselves involved in Evonne’s, the Vicar’s wife, first ever pantomime. There is bossy Brownie Leader Helen trying to get her claws into delicious David. Sexy secretary Linda is threatening to derail Bob and Kath’s marriage. Wayne is more concerned with finding a phone signal than remembering his cues and will anyone ever actually want to listen to one of Leonard’s illustrated slide shows on steam trains, spiders or Genghis Khan? Before long it’s a chaotic mix of painted sandwiches, broken wands, and an embarrassing incident in the Tesco wine aisle.

“How will they sort this mess out?!”
