Bottisham Players, January 22nd - 24th, 2004
Director's Note: I was in this pantomime as one of the pirates about 18 years ago, so it is a particular pleasure for me to see the show performed properly this time! This production is set a little forward in time from when Sir Richard Whittington actually was Lord Mayor of London. In fact, any similarities in the setting and style between this show and last year's film "Pirates Of The Caribbean" are more than coincidental. Still, as many traditional elements of pantomime have been incorporated as possible from a cast where the ladies considerably outnumber the gentlemen. Next time, please feel free to volunteer yourself! Everyone has, as usual, worked to their utmost to entertain you and we all hope you enjoy it and do your part to join in with the cast when asked.
