Pantomime Peter Pan

Time of Event:- Fri 7:00pm; Sat 2:00pm and 7:00pm

Barrow Panto Group’s 21st panto


Barrow Panto Group will be performing Peter Pan on Friday March 8th starting at 7:00pm and Saturday March 9th 2:00pm and 7:00pm in Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow upon Soar, LE12 8JU.

This is a magical and very funny pantomime version of the novel by J.M. Barrie. It is largely faithful to the original story with the addition of a dame, Nana, the new nursemaid who has replaced a dog, leading to lots of ‘doggy’ jokes. Captain Hook is the best kind of panto baddie and his pirate sidekicks are suitably stupid. The pirate comedy duo Line and Sinker are chased relentlessly by the Indian squaws Shy-Ann and Sioux. There are lots of opportunities for slapstick including a traditional ‘He’s behind you’ scene, a mop drill on board ship and a scene with a large inflatable fish.

If you want the full story (in case you can’t make sense out of our production!):

The play begins in the nursery of the Darling household in London, where Wendy, John, and Michael are going to bed. They are surprised by the arrival of Peter Pan and the fairy Tinker Bell. Peter has come to retrieve his shadow, which he had previously lost there. Peter reveals that he lives in the Never Land as captain of the Lost Boys. Invited by Peter to come to the Never Land to tell stories to the Lost Boys, Wendy and her brothers fly with Peter to an island populated by, in addition to the Lost Boys, villainous pirates led by Peter’s sworn enemy, Captain Hook; a crocodile that had been fed Hook’s arm by Peter Pan and wishes to eat the rest of him (but has also swallowed a clock, the ticking of which can be heard when the beast is near); Tiger Lily, leader of a band of “redskin braves” who is also in competition with Wendy and the jealous Tinker Bell for Peter’s affection; and mermaids. Peter, however, shows little interest. Magical adventures and pirate attacks take place. At length the Darling children decide to return home, but they are captured by the pirates. The boys are made to walk the plank and Wendy is tied to the mast, but Peter Pan rescues them, and the boys kill all the pirates. At last the children return to London, leaving Peter Pan to his perpetual boyhood. 

Tickets cost is still very reasonable: Standard £8; Concessions of every sort £6; Family (2+2) £24. You can buy them by PayPal or card HERE, or from the Flower Shop, High St, or Barrow Library or from members of the cast. Enquiries and Box Office: 07718 153117


Centre Stage in Barrow: “La Bella and the Lost Chord of Ulanbataar”

Price:-               £10.00 Full price tickets bought in advance are: standard £10; concessions £9; and students in full time education £5.
Date of Event:-   29th March
Time of Event:- 7.30pm
Venue:-            Humphrey Perkins Community Centre

This Centre Stage show is unashamed FUN from a cheery three-piece band with a vintage boys-own adventure style.

Thrill to a brilliantly entertaining lecture detailing how three dapper, but hapless chaps embark on a perilous adventure by boat, airship and jalopy across Europe and Asia in search of a mysterious and fantastical ancient treasure (and to revive their mediocre musical careers). It begins as a bumbling lecture promising 'rare artefacts' but swiftly descends into slapstick as the equipment comically fails and they must fall back on their musical skills to get them out of the soup. Expect Eighty Days Around the World crossed with James Bond crossed with Gardeners Question Time with mimes, charades, shadow puppetry, close harmony singing and musical interludes by large men playing big music on small instruments. La Bella Band are Kieran, Mark and Gary playing music from the last two centuries, providing vocal dexterity to supplement ukulele, guitar and cajón. Their repertoire includes well known songs from 1926 to the present day. The songs are fun and witty (think Flanders and Swann) and all their own material with ditties such as 'Yurts and Yaks (there's no turning back)' and 'Istanbul (Not Constantinople)' which you're sure to be humming all the way home.

It's definitely a show with a twinkle in its eye, underpinned by a rattling good story. This musical cabaret will have audiences of all ages joining in the fun.

“La Bella and the Lost Chord of Ulanbataar” will take place on Friday March 29th starting at 7.30 in Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow upon Soar, LE12 8JA. Full price tickets bought in advance are: standard £10; concessions £9; and students in full time education £5. Bought on the door they each cost £1 more. Tickets are available from The Flower Shop, the Library, by Paypal or card from or phone 07718153117.

There will be a full bar, easy disabled facilities and plenty of parking.

Barrow WI and Barrow WI present Raising Agents

As part of Barrow WI's 70th Birthday Celebrations this year, the WI is is joining up with Barrow Panto Group to produce a hilarious play "Raising Agents". Helen Sadler will be producing the play which is written by Maeve Larkin.  The performance is on Saturday April 6th in Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow upon Soar  LE12 8JU starting at 7.00pm.

The play is set around the fictional WI of Bunnington. It deals with the group’s struggle to retain members in a swiftly modernising world and it highlights  landmark events in the organisation. It's a play about the WI for WI members but it is very funny and it will definitely be enjoyed also by people who know nothing about the WI  (Women's Institute) movement. 

Tickets cost £10 (incl light refreshments) available to members and non members. Tickets can be purchased from Taylors the Florist & the Library in Barrow or you can contact Kate Bowler on 01509 415627 (eve)  or email:
