The doughty Horncastle Players are now busy rehearsing this year’s pantomime – Robinson Crusoe. Suspend disbelief as Dame Crusoe, her son Robinson, the Captain of the ship Hans Free and Schumacher the gorilla cast off from Horncastle fish docks only to be wrecked on a desert island ruled by the evil pirate Queen.
Of course there are the traditional chases, fights and love interests to keep you on your toes. The show opens on January 24 and runs Wednesday to Saturday over two weeks.
Tickets for some performances are already sold out, but if you’re quick you might snap some up for the weeknight shows. They cost £7 and are available from Horncastle Music Shop in the Bull Ring, 01507 526566.
