Axminster Drama Club will be staging its annual pantomime this week, with opening night on Thursday.

The tale of Rapunzel features a girl trapped in a tower by the evil witch for many years until the hero discovers her and seeks to aid her escape.

But just as he thinks he has succeeded in his mission, the witch discovers the plot and banishes him from the land.

Rapunzel features many traditional elements of panto, with chances to boo the baddie and cheer the goodies.

Working under the direction of Andrew Coley, who also wrote the script, the cast includes some well known faces from previous productions by the drama club.

The show will be staged from Thursday, January 18 to Saturday, January 20 and tickets costing £10 for adults and £8 for children are available online at www.ticketsource.co.uk or at Archway Bookshop, Church Street, Axminster.

All tickets are £1 off on Thursday.
