A THEATRE version of Beatrix Potter’s beloved ‘The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck’ is coming to Dunster on Saturday, June 29.

Director Michael Whitmore’s delightful new adaptation with a score by Gideon Escott is packed full of songs, action, and drama, to delight and enthral all ages.

It is being performed by Quantum Theatre, which last week put on a performance of the Charles Dickens classic ‘Great Expectations’.

Quantum has for more than 30 years been touring the UK and bringing theatre to communities which would not ordinarily be able to experience a live performance.

Prevented from hatching her eggs at the farm, Jemima goes in search of a nesting place in the forest and meets a ‘whiskered gentleman’ who offers her a perfect nesting place in his wood shed

But why is his wood shed full of feathers and why is he asking her to collect the herbs for roast duck?

Kip the farm dog fears the worst...

The show will be performed in the village’s Priory Church of St George and will help to raise funds for the new Dunster Winter Festival,

Tickets are available online here and more information about the festival is available here.
