The Ice Queen and The Wizard will be put on by The Aylsham Players from Thursday February 21 to Saturday February 23.

Performances will be held at 7.30pm each night and the Saturday matinee will take place at 2pm. Tickets cost £6 and £5 for children and senior citizens for the matinee show only.

A licenced bar will be open for the night shows and a raffle will also be put on.

The pantomime has been co-directed by Dawn Bradshaw and Sue Smith and features a cast of 15 children, teenagers and adults.

It starts with the Ice Queen Princess Katya, played by 17 year old Abi Wills, who is due to marry her handsome Prince Belugarov.

But her big day gets ruined by her jealous sister Princess Gotya who persuades the evil wizard Smirnoff to kidnap the Ice Queen before she can say 'I do'.
