NOW, before we start we just want to assure you that if there is any innuendo in this news item, then we shall whip it out immediately.
A few weeks ago, the Thurrock Courts Players put leaflets, advertising their pantomime ‘The Only Way is Dick” around the Thameside Theatre in Grays.
However, when young children visiting the Thameside handed the leaflets to their parents, there were complaints. YT understands that a decision was made to withdraw the leaflets.
A representative from Thurrock Courts Players has privately told YT that the decision is something they have found hard to swallow.
The panto includes a number of favourites including former fireman Mike Jones, who has told YT that the panto is the most fun he has had since sliding down his pole for thirty years.
They may plead their case to Thurrock councillor Sue McPherson, whose responsibilities include the Thameside Theatre. As Sue is also a thespian, many hope that Sue will bend over backwards for the panto.
