Spilsby Local Amateur Pantomime Society (SLAPS) are kicking off their Panto Week with the gala opening night on Tuesday, promising a fun and entertaining evening for all the family.
Robin Hood and the Lady Who Lived in a Shoe commences with their gala opening night on Tuesday 16th February and continues until Saturday 20th February when there will be two performances, one at 2:30pm (matinee) and one at 7:30pm.
The entire production is staged by a group of committed volunteers who have been in rehearsals since October to ensure that everything is “alright on the night”.
This years’ production is written by author Ed Lane and directed by Denis Chandler. The cast and crew are now in final rehearsals before curtain up on 16th.
Tickets for this year’s production start at only £5.00 and are on sale from The Green House, on Spilsby High Street, (telephone 01790 753765) but can also be bought on the door, with doors opening at 7pm and curtains up at 7:30pm.
The group has stated that tickets are selling well for the show and booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.
All performances take place at the King Edward VI Academy on West End, in Spilsby. The doors open at 7:00pm with curtain up at 7:30pm (2:00pm for the Saturday matinee).
A huge amount of effort goes into each year’s production with the cast assisted by a huge number of scenery painters, costume designers, make up and wardrobe, set design, musicians and sound technicians and many other volunteers who all give up their time to ensure that everyone enjoys the Show!
