INTO THE WOLVERLEY WOODS
In 2019 fairy tale characters were seeking out ingedients in the Wolverley Woods to help the Witch create her prize winning cake for 'The Great Wolverley Bake Off' and to lift the curse on the Baker's ovens. Lots of lovely characters, including The Three Little Pigs, Rapunzel, Jack and the Drakelow Dragon, Red Riding Hood, a Wolf and a colourful pantomime Dame ' The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe' were featured. The Wicked Witch won the village baking competition, beating stiff competition frpm Red Riding Hood and Dame Mrs Blunt who took second and third places.
DICK & THE WHITTINGTON CAT
In 2017 Dick and his trusty companion 'Witt the Cat' fought off a band of particularly nasty rats to save a barge full of cheese, win the girl as well as ending up as Lord Mayor of London. Besides the traditional characters there was a very drunken blue fairy, named 'Fairy Bombay Sapphire', a pirate named Captain Mouthwash, two not so identical twins 'Gordon Zola' and 'Baby Belle' who delieved a range of cheese based jokes with their 'mother' Dame 'Philadelphia Ritz'.
ROBIN HOOD IN 50 SHADES OF GREEN
In 2016 Robin Hood, dressed in a very fetching 50 Shades of Green, took the local residents of Wolverley on a fine adventure
in another sell-out four night show. This local version of the traditional story followed the hero on his journey, after his famed success in Nottingham, as he travels to Wolverley to seek his one true love and helps save the village from the evil Sheriff.
CINDERELLA GETS A FELLA
Due to the outstanding success of the first pantomime in 2015 the Wolverley Village Players added an extra night of performances
for the production of 'Cinderella Gets A Fella'. The local version of the classic story featured many local landmarks and characters. Not one, but a union of fairies featured in the show, together with the three bears, one of the seven dwarfs and some very lively ugly sisters.
ALICE'S MIS-ADVENTURERS IN WOLVERLEYLAND
In 2014 the Wolverley Village Players produced and performed their first pantomime 'Alice's Mis-Adventures in Wolverleyland' to a sell-out audience over 3 nights. The pantomime was a huge success and the cast, crew and audience all had a great time. The story followed Alice as she fell down the rabbit hole who was none other than Rabbit Plant based on local rock legend Robert Plant.
In 2018 treasure seekers struck gold as Jim found riches and true love with Lorna, who had disguised herself, to board the ship and travel to Treasure Island with him. They visited a desert Island on
the way, saved the missionary from the hungry natives and fought off a bunch of lively pirates led by Long John Silver. Long John Silver's crew featured some funnily named pirates including Cut Throat Pete, Mandy Lifeboats and Hans Zondeck! There were also some very funny seagulls that were loved by the audience.
