Robinson Crusoe & the Pirates

A swashbuckling panto!

Young Robinson Crusoe has always had an appetite for adventure!  Living with his old mother Dame Crystal Crusoe, his washed-up father Captain Crusoe and his silly billy brother Sprat Crusoe, Robinson has no desire to take over the family Fish ‘n Chip shop. 

Meanwhile, the high seas are terrorised by the evil pirate Captain Blacktashe in his search for the long-lost temple of treasure on Thousand Island.  But the map where X marks the spot has been lost for years…

Will Robinson ever find the treasure?  Will Dame Crusoe end up battered?  And what is that mysterious writing on the back of the chip shop menu?

Find out in the pantomime sure to give you that ‘Friday’ feeling!

A fabulous value Christmas treat for all the family.  Don’t delay – book today!

Please be aware that Pyrotechnics, Strobe, UV and Smoke effects may be used in this production.
