FELSTED Village annual pantomime gave theatre-goers a treat with plenty of guns, smoke and a fish and chip supper thrown in.
Western-themed Gunsmoke, written by local builder Bob Skinner and played at Memorial Hall, proved a hit as the 16-strong cast played to predominantly sell-out audiences over a four night running.
Spokesman for the group, Dicky Howett, said: "There was lots of fun and laughter and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Certainly the Western aspect, and the fake accents, was well appreciated.
"Tickets were �12 and included a fish and chip supper, which went down a real treat, so people got a lot out of it."

He added: "We're having a video showing of the performance just for the crew at the end of this month so that we can laugh again at the antics."
As well as enchanting the crowds the production - which sees sheriff Matt Finish seek the help of Black Bart Jnr and his magic bullet to help kick the devilish Booze Brothers out of Dodge City - also helped the group raise over �1000 towards the Memorial Hall.
