Axmouth Children’s Theatre aims for treasure in panto

13:30 20 January 2016


Following their recent very successful Christmas play, the children of ACT (Axmouth Children’s Theatre) are now hard at work on their new pantomime.

This year’s production will be Treasure Island (ish).

Written and directed by Malcolm Henty, it will be taking place on Friday, February 19, and Saturday, February 20, in Axmouth Village Hall, with performances at 7pm on both nights.

Ticket prices will be £5 for adults and £2 for under 14s.

These will be on sale shortly.

Refreshments will be served during the interval.

For this production there will be a cast of 17 children with ages ranging from 7 – 16 years old.

For their Christmas play, the youngsters performed a new musical called We Built This City (on rock ‘n’ roll).

The show had a cast of 16 and the story was based on the run-down city of Vexas, in the United States of America, which needed a miracle to save it and got just that, complete with a spaceship and alien visitors.
