A DANCE and theatre school is “sticking close to tradition” by staging a pantomime in the springtime.

MalDo Productions, which attracts members from throughout the East Durham area, will be staging Snow White on Saturday, March 1, and Sunday, March 2.

Shows start at 2pm on both days, with a 6.30pm show on the Saturday.

Tickets are £4 for adults and £3 for children aged under 12.

Spokesman Sarah Taylor said: “People might think it a little odd to stage a panto in March, but they were traditionally spring shows so we decided to stay true to tradition.

“The show is written and directed by Richenda Blakelock, who has worked hard, and is determined to stage a production that showcases the many talents and abilities of the local children and young people.”

Sarah added: “Snow White will be MalDo’s eleventh show, which is a great achievement for the time that we have been running.

“The society’s success is all down to the hard work of the cast and committee.

“I only hope the community support them by coming to see us.

“We have a lot of young talent within the group and they deserve a full house.

“We have purposefully kept ticket prices low, because we want to appeal to the community spirit, and want everyone to back us.”

Tickets are available for the show, which will be held at Dawdon Welfare Hall, from the booking hot-line on (0191) 5817231.
