Rayleigh Operatic and Dramatic Society

Rayleigh Operatic and Dramatic Society (RODS) present a family pantomime 'Mother Goose'

Poor kindly Mother Goose - she used to have the finest goose farm in the village - but with Squire Moneybags and his henchman demanding eggs-streme amounts of rent from the villagers her business is all gone and her and her family left poorer than ever.

Meanwhile Fairy Friendship has been tasked with sending the eggs-quisite Priscilla the Goose to earth to learn from someone kind and good. She sends Priscilla to Mother Goose, who despite being so poor takes her under her wing.

When Priscilla rewards her by producing wonderful gold eggs Mother Goose becomes rich! But her wealth starts to make her become selfish and vain and in steps evil Demon Discontent who tries to tempt her with eternal beauty.

Will Demon Discontent egg-cel in his evil plans, or will Mother Goose eggs-amine her conscience in time?

To see, come along and join RODS as we bring this extrava-gander of a pantomime to the heart of Rayleigh - you'll be sure to enjoy this festive eggs-perience!!
