First created in 1902 for music hall legend Dan Leno, this classic story of the battles between good and evil and the quest for youth, beauty, wealth and happiness has been written specially for Wilton’s by none other than the venerable Roy Hudd. Debbie Flitcroft is once more in the director’s chair and husband Roy is back in a frock as the titular Dame. With their stellar cast and crew, they are taking us on Mother Goose’s roller coaster journey and from rags to riches (and, of course, to Gooseland) and back again with a few surprises, endless fun for all ages and much hilarity along the way. There’ll be song and dance, love and romance and arch villains versus good fairies so brace yourselves for booing, cheering, uproarious laughter and 400 year-old jokes about stuffing.
Better start exercising those chuckle muscles and vocal chords now… all together now… HE’S BEHIND YOU!
