Pantomime Company Proudly Present
The Pirates of the Pacific
January 10th – february 3rd 2018
Join the Pantomime Company at the Concordia theatre as they set sail on a swashbuckling adventure with their next production. It will be twenty years since the company last told the tale of ‘Robinson Crusoe’ – this new production will have a distinctly South American feel as we base the show in Old Brazil! Follow Robinson as he journeys across the high seas to the mystical island of Raratonga in search of hidden treasure! Battling against cruel but cowardly Pirates led by the glamurous but evil Pirate Queen – Black Eyed Pearl and the deadly Davy Jones, Robinson has the help of a Magical Mermaid and his funny family, his mum Mrs Carmen Crusoe and his brother Silly Billy Crusoe! Add to this some Crazy Cannibals and their hungry Queen, Polly the Parrot and loads of other zany characters. The production will feature all the usual fun and spectacle associated with pantomimes at the Concordia – a treat for all the family!
If you would like to be part of the fun on stage keep watching our website for details of auditions! Auditions for available principal roles will take place over the next couple of months. Dance auditions will be held on Sunday 9th July.
