Preparations are well in hand for Wick Players' pantomime The Snow Queen, which will be staged for three nights in December before concluding with an afternoon performance.

It will be a first for members of the community drama club as they have never presented this play before.

The Snow Queen is written by Alan P Frayn and is being directed by club chairwoman Jenny Szyfelbain, with Maura Szyfelbain as producer.

A spokesperson for Wick Players said: "We are delighted to welcome on board John MacBeath as musical director. John has a wealth of talent in music, he can turn his hand to many instruments, and the club is very fortunate to have him as part of the production team.

"The cast for the show consists of a variety of players, both young and older members. Some have experience of the stage and others are new to it."

The family-friendly show will have four performances at the Assembly Rooms – on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, December 6, 7 and 8, at 7.30pm each evening, and a matinée at 2.30pm on Saturday, December 9.
