Puss In Boots

20 - 28 December (not 25 or 26)

The Essex Group

Puss In Boots

The Essex Group present their Witham panto for all the family!

In the Alpine Township of Flabbergast, there lived a miller who had acquired considerable wealth through the careful and prosperous management of his mill, which provided the town with its grain. The Miller had three sons who each shared in the work and running of the mill until one day the Miller fell ill and died. In his will he left the mill to his eldest son, his team of donkeys to his middle son and the cat to his youngest son. The two older brothers were overjoyed, but the youngest son was a little sad because unlike his two brothers he had no means by which to make his fortune as he saw little use in the cat. Or did he?

Debbie Baisden

Menopause Party

Dolly Slatemen, the working wo-mans pub landlady (alias real life Essex Pub Landlady Debbie Baisden) brings the Menopause Party to the masses. Directed by Chris Head, this taboo-smashing show with character comedy, sing-a-longs, spoken word and Dolly's arty expression will have you thinking about the menopause in whole new way. The show is an edutainment performance, so expect to learn something on the phenomenon of the menopause that affects half the planet because, funnily enough, it's half female. Dolly will take you on a comical journey via her diary together with Judge Mental and Dr Meena Poors.
