Robinson Crusoe visits Lympstone’s shore
PUBLISHED: 15:15 08 December 2011
With a Girl Friday, a Cannibal Queen and a clever parrot, the Lympstone Players have gone for an amusing twist on the popular tale of Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates for this year’s pantomime.
The show, which has been written by the Players, goes out next week for three days from Thursday, December 15 to Saturday, December 17 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
There will be plenty to laugh about from the cast of 25 with gruff-spoken Royal Marine, Matt Hood, playing the Dame and co-writer Joel Teague the Cannibal Queen.
As is often the case, Ben Redding will be the baddie and taking the boos from the audience as Black Beard the evil pirate while his wife Heather is Robinson Crusoe.
The cast involves a lot of youngsters from the village and the show includes plenty of music and dance.
Tickets are available from Lympstone Post Office costing £10 for adults and £12 for reserved seats. Children’s tickets are £4 and £5 reserved.
