THE MONKEY PUZZLE

A Pantomime By Enid Hughes



Panto performed 26 - 28 January 2017 at the Mytchett Centre, Camberley






The Monkey Puzzle - our Pantomime for January 2017

The Princess Berenice arrives and a case of mistaken identity follows. Prince James, determined to catch the thieves, disguises himself as a copper and sets out to apprehend them, with a new pet monkey in tow. But Ma Jenkins and her henchmen have other ideas and plot to trap the monkey - nabbing virtually the entire cast in the process.

But like all good tales, the baddies are thwarted, the Prince and Princess get married (though not to each other) and the monkey gets… Well, you’ll just have to come find out.

The handsome Prince James is coming of age and faces the prospect of an unhappy marriage to the ghastly and lascivious Princess Berenice of Bolonia. Understanding his dilemma, the Fairy Luscinia has other ideas involving a match-making red feather. Meanwhile, Mary Ann, a downtrodden orphan is up at the crack of dawn slaving after the evil Ma Jenkins and her henchmen. Framed for the theft of the Princes’ Royal Star, she is thrown into jail.
