Families will be whisked away to a magical kingdom when BOS Musical Theatre performs its version of Rapunzel, starting on Saturday at Blackfriars Theatre in Boston.

The panto follows the story of Rapunzel as a young woman imprisoned in a bewitched tower in the forest and takes audiences on a comedy ride with vibrant characters, songs and dance.

It has been written by Heckington-based author Kei Bailey and features songs from Frozen (Let It Go), Oliver 
(Consider Yourself) and Half a Sixpence (Flash, Bang, 

Director Lesley Smith said: “This is not just a children’s show - it is a family show.

It will appeal to all from children, to parents and grandparents.

There is lots of comedy and we have some fabulous duos, with some very clever writing.

“There is a pompous prince and his messy side-kick and a great host of memorable characters with scenes set around a circus.

“It is not just the Rapunzel story everybody knows although the basic story 
remains the same in that she is taken by the witch and 
everything ends with a happily ever after.”

Popular local actress Abby Johnson will be performing as fussy secretary Miss 
Crumble while Andrea 
Townshend takes on the role of the Dame’s comedy side-kick.

The production runs until Saturday, April 25, and audiences will receive a free ice cream with every ticket 
purchased for the show.

Tickets are £14 for adults, £12 for concessions and £45 for a family ticket.
