Personnel from RNAS Culdrose and their families were in Helston to unveil the cast for their latest pantomime, The Three Musketeers.

The air station will be following last year’s successful Little Bo Peep with a new swashbuckler, which promises loyal musketeers, one-eyed baddies, evil women, deadly plots and corny jokes.

Annette Shaw, chairman of Culdrose Theatre Group, said: “I am always amazed at the amount of hard work that goes into each production.

“Rehearsing part-time, the dedicated cast somehow manages to juggle their work, school and busy family lives to make each show as entertaining as possible.”

Members of the cast and crew were in full costume in Helston ahead of the opening night next Wednesday.

The play runs from November 27 until December 1 with Saturday and Sunday matinees.
