MEN in tights and women dressed as boys – it's pantomime season again and the Deben Players are bringing their own original show to Suffolk.

A Knight in Camelot tells the story of how a boating accident leads King Arthur to almost lose his crown to his man servant Norman.

The players have been bringing pantomime to the region for more than 40 years with 14 great years at the Riverside Theatre, Woodbridge.

This year Amanda Voss is playing Norman with Neil Pearce as Arthur and Steve Parkes back in his favourite role as the dame.

Steve Henley wrote and directed the show and said A Knight in Camelot has everything you expect from a pantomime and more.

"This has everything with the advantage of being purely original. I met Bill Stoddart in Felixstowe and he helped me to arrange the songs. Now he is our musical director and he has given the group a real boost.

"It is going to be a funny, lively, great show to come and see," he said.

Some of Mr Henley's songs have even been featured on Radio Suffolk.

So if it is originality, comedy and great songs that you want them come along to the Riverside Theatre, Woodbridge, to watch this wonderful tale unfold.

A Knight in Camelot runs from December 21 to January 4.
