Have your say

The classic tale of the triumph of the under-‘dog’ receives the ‘Pint-Sized Players’ treatment on the stage in Spalding on Saturday (3pm).

The classic story of 101 Dalmatians is being brought to the stage at South Holland Centre in the town by Act II’s young performers.

It’s the heartwarming tale for all ages of Pongo and his family, who must evade the terrifying Cruella De Vil if they are to be saved from becoming fashion accessories!

Director Karl Gernert said: “This is the first time our Pint-Sized Players group have performed in the South Holland Centre auditorium.”

The group meets on Tuesdays (4.30-6pm) and is made up of children aged seven to 11 who wish to specialise in non-musical plays. This one, by Dodie Smith, has been adapted by Glyn Robbins.

Some of the Pint-Sized Players are pictured above rehearsing a scene ready for their performance.

They are (from left) Joe Smith (Jasper Baddun), Harry Smith (Saul Baddun) and Rosalia Bunder (Cruella De Vil).

The show lasts for one hour and 45 minutes.

Tickets for the production cost £8, £6 concessions and under 16s, available from South Holland Centre’s box office, telephone 01775 764777.
