Pictured here are Suzanne Hockstein and Kathryn Donnelly,  who will be the latter pair in the title “Harry Putzer & The Spiders from Mars — A Holiday Pantomime,” while Aoife Williamson will play Harry in the show beginning tonight at 8 p.m. at An Beal Bocht Café, 445 West 238th St. in Riverdale, Bronx. The Poor Mouth Theatre Company presentation will also be performed on Saturday, at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m., and Sunday, at 2 p.m. Tickets — 18 for adults and $12 for kids 12 and under — are available at the café and at BrownPaperTickets.com.

“This is a pantomime in the Irish/English sense and not a silent performance,” the Poor Mouth said of its “madcap interpretation” of the Harry Potter series. “That means songs and comedy as well as audience participation. Cheer for the heroes and boo the villains, sing along to the songs and have fun and laughs along the way.
