The girls of North Cadbury are braced for a teary few days as Georgie Porgie is set loose in the village.
A 30-strong cast will perform the village's first pantomime in nearly a decade for three nights.
More than 300 tickets have already been snapped up for the spectacle, to be staged at the village hall.
Producer Steve Craggs said: "We began rehearsals back in October so it has been a long time coming. The village hall has a fantastic stage but it's hardly been used for the past ten years. That's why I wanted to get a community project going and see its potential.
"Around 80 per cent of the cast are from the North Cadbury and Yarlington parish, all of different ages. It has helped form new friendships.
"As a result of rehearsals we have seen an amateur dramatics group formed in the village, and they are auditioning for another production in May. It has brought the village together. The public has responded brilliantly and there will be a great atmosphere for the next few days. There is a real mix of nerves and excitement. I hope it all goes well."
Starting at 7pm, the performances will take place from Thursday until Saturday evening.
