Our next production will be our traditional family pantomime.

MERLIN
THE SPELLBINDING PANTO

By Limelight Scripts
Directed by Lorna Cottrill
Musical Direction by Vicki Arnold and Mark Hastings
Choreography by Vicki Arnold

To be performed at the Memorial Hall, Old Windsor, SL4 2RN
from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th December and Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th December 2022

A rollicking medieval adventure filled with magic and mayhem.

Mordred the Merciless returns to Camelot intent on stealing the magic sword Excalibur
and taking over King Arthur's throne.
Mordred challenges Arthur's champion Sir Dancelot to a joust to the death.
But the hapless Dancelot cries off and is replaced by Chester the Jester.

Chester somehow manages to defeat Mordred in an hilarious joust,
aided by his trusty steed Ozzy the ostrich and a little help from Merlin.
