Photos from Mother Goose

Here are a couple of photos from the Mother Goose pant which has just just finished a successful, sell-out run at Teatteri Siperia, Sorintalo, Tampere, one of the whole cast and one of the Goose family: Mother, Jack, Silly Billy and Lucy the goose. I defy anyone to identify me in these pictures.

Mother Goose Panto in Tampere

The Tampere Finnish-British Society is staging a production of the pantomime Mother Goose, in English. Performances will be on Thursday 18 December at 19.00, Friday 19 December at 19.00, and Saturday 20 December at 14.00 and 19.00. The venue is Sorintalo, Sorinkatu 16, Tampere and tickets are 7 €, available through tamperepanto@gmail.com or at the door.

The cast is all amateur, composed largely of students from Tampereen Lyseon Lukio (Rellu). And guess who’s playing the role of Mother Goose? It’s funny, I’d never really seen myself as a panto dame before.
