DINGWALL Players will be playing it for laughs next month with their traditional pantomime, Humpty Dumpty - The Eggs Factor.

Writer Jack Clancy and director Allan Thomson have concocted a story based around classic nursery rhymes and characters ranging from Mother Hubbard to Tommy Tucker.

It's described as a traditional pantomime with an original story based around classic nursery rhymes and includes characters you may recall from childhood picture books such as Mother Hubbard ,Tommy Tucker and King Egbert

The "glamorous loud-mouthed Dame", Mother Hubbard will be played by seasoned hand Stewart Macpherson.

The writing team describe the plot thus: "A curse was placed on the Kingdom of Eggshellia that it would be drained of sunlight and happiness. However the court magician managed to suspend the curse and trap it in a giant egg.As long as the egg remains intact, Eggshellia is safe, and it is Humpty Dumpty's job to keep it that way. The inhabitants of Eggshellia are happily getting on with their lives until sorceress wicked Salmonella shows up!"

Performances will take place at Dingwall Academy from Thursday 12 - Saturday 14 December at 7.30pm

with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced at £9 for an adult, £7 concession, and £5 for children under 12 years.

Tickets are available from Dingwall Sport and Model Shop and online at www.dingwallplayers.org
