The Isle of Ely Arts Festival Players return this year with ‘a wonderfully written local farce’.

“Behind the Scenes tells the story of a small Fen village theatre group putting on a pantomime,” say the group.

“Drawing on the author’s experience in amateur dramatics, and her familiarity with pantomime, the result is a touching comedy that makes audiences both laugh and cry.

“Despite all the dramas and crises, the show must go on.”

The performances take place on the following dates:
