A PANTOMIME is coming to Swanage's Mowlem Theatre this year.

Made to Measure Productions will be performing the show, The Adventure of the Purbeck Pirates, during May half term.

A spokesman from the production company said: "Prepare for scallywags and seadogs as our potty pirate crew dock in Swanage for an exciting pantomime adventure for all the family.

"Join the hilarious seadog Billy, the bumbling Captain Filibuster and the plucky pirate Poppy as they head off on the voyage of a lifetime in search of the lost treasure of Mermaid Reef.

"It is not all plain sailing though, as the evil Captain Blackhead has more than a few tricks up his sleeve to thwart our courageous crew and claim the treasure as his own. Don’t panic, though, as the magical spirit of the seas will be on hand to sprinkle some sparkle and weave her magic to save the day."

The show, starting at 2pm each day, runs from May 26-28.

Tickets available at mowlemtheatre.com or on 01929 422239.

Standard tickets start at £10 plus booking fee.
