SIMPLE Simon helps take on Dastardly Dick and the Wolf in this year’s Harden pantomime Little Red Riding Hood.

Harden Players will again present the family show in Harden Congregational Chapel over two consecutive weekends.

A spokesman said: “Little Red is played by Hannah Crabtree and Simple Simon by Charlotte Revil. Peter Whitely as Dastardly Dick will be involved in much skulduggery with the Wolf. We also feature our popular children’s chorus.

The pantomime, written and directed by Mark Coulthard, will be performed on February 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24 at 7.30pm with matinees at 2pm on both Saturdays.

Tickets cost £6 from Harden Post Office/Village Store. Tickets are already selling fast, and one matinee is already sold out.

Organisers say that due to fire regulations everyone including babies and toddlers must have their own seat.
