A BAWDY comedy musical will blend classic shlock sci-fi and the British tradition of pantomimes into a new Christmas adventure.

Tide Nor Time Players are performing a new, original comedy musical for Christmas  entitled Lance McKrack and the Dr X. Mass Adventure.

Lance McKrack and his trusty crew must battle the evil Professor Brainovski to save Dr X. Mass before it’s too late and Christmas is stolen from the galaxy.

Join the intrepid heroes as they rock their way through the solar system, battle evil cyborgs and try to over-come the dark forces that may destroy the yuletide forever!

The production will be in the grand tradition of classic 1950s science fiction films such as Forbidden Planet.

There will be an eclectic mix of music, comedy, silliness for the kids and bawdy humour for the adults.

Shows will be performed at The Depozitory, Ryde on December 16 at 6.30pm and on December 17 at 2pm and 6.30pm.

Tickets are just £3.50 each from https://www.tidenortime.uk/lance-mckrack

Recommended for age 12 up, with parental discretion.

The cast list includes Candy Cassidy, Carys Broome, Simon Bucher-Jones, Linda O’Connor, Jack Brading, Freddie Holme, Marilyn Bersey, Julian Gabriel Clarke, Aaron Danvers-Jukes, Polly Wray, George Wilson, Holly Wilson and Olivia Padina-Gray.

“Probably the most bonkers musical of the festive season,” said writer and director Paul A.T. Wilson.

“We pride ourselves on creating original content and we decided that if you can’t be completely over the top at Christmas, when can you be?

"Being a huge fan of classic sci-fi films and having a deep love of pantomimes, I decided to merge the two in this outrageous Christmas spectacular.”
