Director’s Notes:

Welcome to our pantomime for 2019, “The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe”. Based on the famous Daniel Defoe novel, the Show is filled with all the old familiar features, and some new, which I am sure 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. Best wishes for 2019

Dorothy Fish
