Stane Street Players proudly present their NEW YEAR PANTOMIME

Great fun for the whole family...

An hilarious romp in the best pantomime tradition, with plenty of audience involvement.

Join Robinson Crusoe and his less well known brother Willy in their search for love and treasure; at home, on the high seas and in exotic distant lands. Accompanied by their doughty mother, Ma Crusoe, the redoubtable Captain Bowsprit and his daughter Bessie, they encounter Pirates at sea in the shape of Blackbeard, his sidekick Patch and their arch enemy, the wily Crimson Hawk.

Thrill as our hero survives being shipwrecked and goes on to meet the sea god Neptune and his entourage in an underwater lair.
See him make friends with Man Friday on a desert island before the pair go on to rescue Robinson’s friends and family, who in his absence have been having an exciting time with dangerous Sharks, an amorous Gorilla and a threatening Medicine Man.

Then rejoice with them in their happy ending as they all end up rich and in love!
With plenty of opportunities to sing along to familiar songs (and dance if you want to), this production will be a treat for all the family!
