After months of hard work and dedication by a whole team of people, the Mabe Youth and Community Project will be raising the curtain on this year's panto on Thursday.

This year's offering, written once more by Jackie Frost and loaded with jokes about the village and nearby Penryn, is The Frog Prince of Mabe.

After insulting the witch Emerald, Prince Teal and his family are cursed to live as frogs, but with the arrival of Princess Jade in the village can they be saved and reclaim their palace?

With plenty of puns and ample opportunity for audience interaction, an evening/afternoon of family entertainment full of fun and laughter is guaranteed.

All proceeds will go to the Mabe Youth and Community Project, which maintains the community hall, skate park and play park in Mabe.

The first performance will be on Thursday and the run will continue until Saturday.

Doors will open at Mabe Community Hall in Cunningham Park at 6.30pm each night ahead of curtain up at 7pm, and there will be an additional 1.30pm matinee on the Saturday.

Tickets are available from Mabe Stores or any cast member and cost £6 for adults and £4 for children.

There will a licensed bar in the evenings and tea and cake at the matinee, as well as pasties and ice-creams.
