The group will take you back to magical and mysterious times in its production of Puss in Boots at the Chapel Playhouse on Eccles Road. Written by Graham Barraclough, this is a vim and vigour version of Charles Perrault's famous fairy story.

When young Jasper (Charlotte Jodrell), a poor miller’s son, finds he has only one possession, an enchanted, clever, chatty cat, his future seems uncertain. But his feline friend isn’t one for pussyfooting around. This slyboots comes up with a plan to make his master a man of means. However, the best laid plans of cats and men often go awry, especially when the main obstacle is a witch (Helen Bates) with a terrifying band of trolls and an ogre (Dan Mason) for a brother! Will Jasper win the day, and the hand of the Princess Pamilla (Serena Gilberthorpe), for a purr-fect ending with the help of Puss (Josephine Kelly) and Fairy Girdle (Helena Jodrell)? Thereby hangs a tail!

Packed with one liners, catchy tunes, madcap antics and a host of loveable and laughable characters, this is a guaranteed crowd pleaser and funny enough to have you caterwauling with laughter.

Charlotte Jodrell (who plays Jasper) with Georgia Buckle in Chapel Players' production of Puss in Boots.
