Old King Cole

By Paul Reakes
2015 Pantomime

King Cole may be old, but he’s not too old to fall in love and now he’s decided that it’s high time that he should take a wife! The women of the town and royal cook Dotty Dumplin are queueing up to audition for the role of Queen. Meanwhile, King Cole’s evil brother Peski and his wife Pariah are conspiring to unseat him from the throne - with a little help from a magic pool that reverses the ageing process, turning Old King Cole into Young King Cole!
