THESPIANS in Fordingbridge will be treading the boards with youngsters from Cranborne for a joint performance of Jack and the Beanstalk.

The Fordingbridge Players and Cranborne Youth Theatre have joined forces for the first time to bring a family friendly, fun-filled panto to life – oh yes they have.

Chairman of Fordingbridge Players Andrew Ledger said: “This is the first time in recent years that we have done anything in collaboration with anyone else.

“Cranborne Youth Theatre is an established community theatre group that draws members from Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire from as young as seven all the way up to 18.

“It will be great to offer some wholesome family entertainment.”

Performances are at Cranborne First School tomorrow and Saturday at 7.30pm and at Burgate School in Fordingbridge on December 15 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets are available at £4 and £6 from Jessica’s in Fordingbridge on 01425 652395.
