Careline Theatre Alcalali

The Wizard of Oz

Jack & the Beanstalk 2012

The Director

Jim Sissens

We all like to be beside the seaside and as everybody knows, an Englishman’s home is his Sand Castle. As two couples start to enjoy their holidays at their beloved beach huts, their cosy little fiefdom is soon disturbed by a number of outsiders. Confrontation is inevitable and solutions are looking impossible to find. This comedy will appeal to all, and we will readily identify with the characters and have a good laugh at their predicament. I hope you will enjoy the show as much as we have enjoyed performing it

Linda has played a variety of comic roles, including Mrs Fox in ‘Dad’s Army’, foul-mouthed Emily in ‘Tomb with a View’ and in contrast, tragic Julia in ‘State of Affairs’. hi panto, she last appeared as the wicked witch, Countess Cruella in ‘Beauty and the Beast’. She loves her present role as Margaret which enables her to sit in a beach chair, read and drink endless cups of tea for the best part of the play!

Kaye Stubley: Bernice Billet
Kaye Stubley: Bernice Billet Kaye appeared as Rum Baba in Careline’s panto ‘Ali Baba’ and also as Mrs Pike in ‘Dad’s Army’. She is enjoying her role as Bernice in Sandcastles, a wonderfully quintessentially English play. Complete with beach Huts, banter and boyfriend trouble!

Robin Baxter: Stan Billet

Robin joined Careline in 2002. With no acting experience, he was more than happy to work back stage. Then in 2008 he had the chance to play Pike in ‘Dad’s Army’. After that there was no stopping him! Since then he’s played in numerous leading comedy roles. Robin grew up in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, so he feels right at home with Sandcastles!

Robin Baxter- Tin Man

Robin Baxter — Tin ManRobin joined Careline in 2002 and was happy working back stage. But in 2008 he had the chance to play Pike in Dad’s Army and then there was no stopping him.

She hasn’t been on the stage for 3 years, so please be gentle with her....
