Summer Panto In Weymouth? Oh No There's Not - Oh Yes There Is!
9:41am 9th May 2014
Weymouth Pavilion is bringing back an old summer seaside favourite.
The venue will be hosting a summer Panto this year - written especially for the resort.
It’s being put on by the same company who did the Christmas Panto, Ron Martin Management.
One of the stars of the show is Danny Rogers , who's late father was household name Ted Rogers.
And it’s not the first time Danny's been to the Pavilion;
“I haven’t been to this theatre since I was 10. The last time I was on the stage was with my Dad, so it’s nice to think I’ll be carrying the mantle for him. So it’s a bit surreal but it will be really rewarding as well.”
The show is called “The Pirates Of The Pavilion” and will run every Tuesday through July and August with two shows a day.
Managing Director of the Pavilion Phil Say says he's sure it's going to be a big hit;
“There’s a lot of family interest. The shows that we put on through Easter were well loved and Cinderella at Christmas broke all box office records. It just makes sense to put on more entertainment for the family.”
