Beck Lowe, the show’s director, is patiently steering the young actors through their dialogue and movement.
There are eight local youngsters in the pantomime, along with seven adults.
All are enjoying rehearsing because the script, written by Melvyn Morrow, is very funny.
The performances are scheduled for December 14 and 15 at the RSL hall.
The first performance is Friday evening followed on Saturday by a matinee at 2pm.
Mudbrick Motley members are also busy with the set and putting costumes together.
The Pantomime is set in Victoria, but still follows the British tradition of good conquering evil and features zany characters interacting with the audience.
The show is suitable for all ages and, as Mudbrick Motley is Heathcote’s local theatre group, it is expecting huge support from local families.
Anyone wishing to book tickets for either performance can contact Maree Hingston on 5433
Tickets will be available for payment and pick up from the Heathcote Visitor Information Centre.
Cast members will be appearing at the Carols in the Park on December 8, singing some of the songs from the show.
