LYNCHMEREANS are celebrating after their sold-out performance of Puss in Boots. This year the pantomime was written by Frederick Tibbs, his seventh for the group.

With jokes, songs, dances and audience participation thanks to compere and author Frederick, the production was well up to the standard the Lynchmereans have achieved every year, keeping them a popular choice for Christmas family entertainment.

A young cast, with a further 50 behind the scenes, played their parts with enthusiasm.

The Lynchmereans produced their third Puss in Boots for this year’s production, but it has several different twists unknown in the first two in years 1968 and 2003.

If the ogre did not laugh he demanded food - human meat by choice.

The panto tells the struggle to keep up the jokes while an exceptionally talented talking cat played by 11-year-old Jocelyn Bell, struggles to get his master to realise the cat was in charge.

There were only a few adults acting although almost 50 behind the scenes.

Costumes, scenery and other accessories added together to make a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Watch out for next year’s production.
