Community theatre group Ebor Players is bringing pantomime back to Bishopthorpe.
This will be the first time Ebor Players has staged a pantomime in the village for four years, due to lockdowns and Covid restrictions – and they’re so excited to be back!
The Ebor Players will be bringing Sleeping Beauty to Bishopthorpe Village Hall from Monday 27 November to Saturday 2 December.
The Ebor Players first formed 25 years ago. From what started as a small group of friends that enjoyed a pint together in the Ebor Inn has grown into a full community of people who love to create ‘wacky entertainment opportunities’ for Bishopthorpe and the surrounding areas.
Their last pantomime was Mother Goose, back in 2019.
Now they are staging the festive favourite Sleeping Beauty at Bishopthorpe Village Hall and it promises fun and frolics for all the family.
“We’re really looking forward to it,” David Rose, the dame for Ebor Players, told the BBC. “It’s been a long time. It’s going to be absolutely fantastic.”
Tickets cost £9.50 (£12.50 for Saturday evening). Wednesday and Saturday evening shows are ‘cabaret’ style performances for adults only.
