At the Village Hall on the 9th - 11th February 2018


So what’s Mother Hubbard about?   Well….

On the verge of being evicted from their home, Old Mother Hubbard, her son, Tommy and Polly, her pretty young daughter are granted a wish by the Good Fairy to try and find their long lost Uncle Oswald. In a blinding flash they are magically transported to a sunbaked prairie in the Wild West. Enter Tex Lamarie, a tall, dashing young cowboy, along with his sidekick Old Tumbleweed, a bewhiskered, disreputable but likeable old-timer. Together they all set out to unravel the mystery of Uncle Ossie’s disappearance. Along the way, among the many characters they meet are the villainous Matt Vinyl and his cronies, the seductive Miss Lulabelle, the beautiful young squaw Little Deer and the imposing Big Chief Thunder Cloud.

 

The Wild West had some strong American, drawn-out accents so expect some "Howdy partner, nice to see y’all round these parts.  Yee-haw!"
