AN AWARD winning drama group is battling against the recession as it prepares for its annual pantomime.

The Chameleon Amateur Dramatic Society, will be performing Jack and the Beanstalk at Brent Town Hall this month.

The group, which was founded in 1966, rehearse at the Neasden Methodist Church in Neasden Lane North.

But despite its long history, the group's chairman, Robert Spolander said community support was still needed to guarantee its future.

He said: "We put it on with a professional attitude, we're not paid for it but we put a lot into it - heart and soul.

"I'm really pleased this year; it is one of the best shows we have ever done. If we produce the quality and we keep producing things people want to see, we hope we can continue."

Chameleons, which won this year's National Operatic and Dramatic Society (NODA) award for London's best panto, is set to have up to 3,000 theatre goers shouting: 'It's behind you!'

The show opens next Thursday at 7pm with tickets priced at a concessionary rate of £7.50. It will run until Sunday, January 17 with full priced adults' tickets costing £9.50.

For more information and show times go to the group's website at www.thechameleons. co.uk or call its box office on 020 8123 6443.
