Robison Crusoe and the Pirates

In the studio for The Saturday Breakfast Show this week was Janet Oliver, the Group Secretary of the New Venture Players. The NVP are one of the busiest drama groups around. They put on three full length productions a year (including a pantomime), a touring Murder Mystery Evening, they usually enter a play into a local one act drama festival, and sometimes put on occasional entertainments, such as their recent evening of comedy.


As it’s Christmas (well, nearly) it’s time for their pantomime. Janet told me about Robison Crusoe and the Pirates which is on this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Brentwood Theatre.


It sound like lots of fun but you’ll have to hurry - there's just time to book passage and set sail with the Crusoe family. They desperately need your help as Robinson faces treachery, shipwreck, the villainous Blackbeard, King Neptune, the mysterious Crimson Hawk and - CANNIBALS.


Can he win through - despite the help of Ma and Willie?


Book now - only a few steerage berths left. Tickets: £5 - £9.50 For more details go to the Brentwood Theatre web site
