Director’s Comments:

Welcome to our pantomime for 2017, ‘Pinocchio — The Panto’ based on the Walt Disney animated film, with all the old familiar features you will enjoy. There will be plenty for you to get involved in, so I hope your vocal chords are ready for all the singing, shouting and booing.

I would like to thank the cast and all the crew behind the scenes for their hard work and support and hope you enjoy the Show tonight and have as much fun as we have putting it together for you.

‘Mama Macaroni’- Dennis Arthur
Dennis Arthur

Dennis has appeared and directed numerous Careline Theatre Productions and this is his message for you all: “Sorry, one and all. I’m back again! Looking forward to donning all the necessary underwear and all the lovely costumes so as to look gorgeous for you all as the Dame”.

‘Maxi Mozarella’- Robin Baxter

Robin BaxterRobin first appeared on stage in 2008 as Pike in ‘Dad& Army’. Since then he has been a regular performer on the Careline stage. He loves the fun and fantasy of doing panto, and he hopes that you, the audience, have as much fun watching ‘Pinocchi’ as the cast and crew have performing it. And you will be spared the sight of him baring his all as he did in ‘The Full Monty’ as Fat Dave!

‘Mini Mozarella’- Linda Arthur
Linda Atrhur

Well, it’s Panto time again, and a miracle has happened: they’ve found me a part with minimal singing and dancing involved (you, the audience have been mercifully spared!) and maximum opportunity to overact as one of the comedy duo, namely the sensible one (well, all things are relative!), Mini!

‘Geppetto’ - Peter Clague
Peter Clague

Peter played Buttons in Carelines production of ‘Cinderella’ way back in 1997 and in many other productions since. He has been involved in Am/Dram for over 40 years both in Spain and the UK. His part this year has him playing an elderly man some perhaps some type casting is creeping in.

‘Lampwick’ - Candida Wright

Candida WrightCandida brings her years of experience to another Careline Panto as Lampwick, the village Odd Job Man. and behaves as enjoyably badly as her director has permitted, if not slightly more! For Candida performing on stage is a delight along with directing which she thoroughly enjoys too and will, she hopes, be bringing you in the not too distant future her version of ‘Fawlty Towers’

‘Stromboli’ - Paul Young
Paul young

Paul joined Careline a year ago. His first acting performance with them was in the production ‘Aladdin’in which he had the part of the Genie. Last year he performed various roles in the production of, ‘After a Fashion’, the ‘Careline Musical Review Show. In October he went on to play the lead in ‘The Full Monty’giving it his all…. Now he is relishing the chance to be the real Baddie!!

‘Jimmy Cricket’ - Connie Levey
Connie Levey

12 year old Connie made her debut with Careline Theatre in the 2014 production of ‘Dick Whittington’ inthe junior chorus and had one line of dialogue. Her potential was soon recognised and she played small parts in the next two pantomimes. Here she is now performing an important principal role and loving every minute of it. She is happy singing, dancing and acting but hates school.
