TICKETS for The Three Musketeers will be on sale this weekend.
The pantomime is being staged in January by the family of a young girl who has a brain disorder.
Seven-year-old Nikita Ray, of Rushden, was born with cerebral palsy and microcephaly, which means her brain develops at a much slower rate than normal.
In 2004, the Evening Telegraph launched an appeal to help her family raise money for a wheelchair and since then readers have helped raise thousands of pounds for the Nikita Ray Disability Fund.
Now, her parents Malcolm and Trudie want to give something back to the people who have helped them.
Instead of just appealing for funding they will be putting on a production of The Three Musketeers.
The Ray family is hoping to raise 4,000 for Nikita’s ongoing treatment by staging the pantomime.
Tickets will be on sale on Sunday at the Christmas lights switch-on in Rushden High Street or from George Alan.
Three performances of the family show will be held at Park Road Baptist Church Hall in Rushden on Friday, January 29, and Saturday, January 30.
The performance will start at 7.30pm on Friday and at 2pm and 7.30pm on Saturday.
Tickets cost 6 for adults, 3 for children and 15 for a family of four.
To book tickets call Mr Ray on 07733 625176.
