Robinson Crusoe: Tickets are on sale!
Following the sell-out success of Sleeping Beauty in February last year and our popular carnival float 'Mexican Mayhem' over the summer, we're thrilled to be back with another vibrant and exciting production that guarantees to delight audiences of all ages.
Robinson Crusoe is being performed on Saturday, February 15, at 2:30 and 7:30pm, on Sunday, February 16, at 2:30pm, and on Saturday, February 22, at 2:30 and 7:30pm.
Tickets are £7.50 for adults and £6.50 for children - an absolute bargain for a truly top quality pantomime - and can be bought by phoning Medina Theatre Box Office on 01983 527020 or by booking online.
Junior pirates are encouraged to come in fancy dress, although - of course - there is no age limit on donning an eye patch and finding a faux parrot to sit on your shoulder, if you really fancy getting into the pantomime spirit!
Rehearsals are well underway, and we're proud to be hosting the largest on-stage fight the Isle of Wight has seen in a good long while, with fight choreographer Patrick Barry (also appearing as Robinson Crusoe) at the helm and a large team of combatants armed with foam swords and ready for battle.
The script, too, is going well. Act II is proving stronger for a minor rewrite, and the chorus are doing a wonderful job of mastering the tribal chanting. As for Act I, cast members are starting to put down their script-shaped security blankets and musical numbers are now fully integrated into the action.
Our charities for 2014 have also been decided, and we are thrilled to announce that we will be donating the proceeds of Robinson Crusoe to:
- Sandown and Shanklin Independent Lifeboat
- Spina Bifida Associaion (Isle of Wight)
- Riding for the Disabled (Isle of Wight)
- Across the Board Surf School
- Newport Scouts
- Ability Dogs 4 Young People
