Stop Press! Our Festive Pantomime is nearly here!

November 10th, 2014 4:46 pm

It’s getting closer to Christmas, and we’re looking forward to our amazing pantomime! Uncle Ben is back, and he’s bringing all his friends and family for one very special weekend, so if you missed the last shows, don’t worry, just relax and read along!

This will be the third time that Uncle Ben and his family have come to The Drum. We first meet them back in 2012 when Uncle Ben first arrived, with a disastrous dinner party full of short tempers and family secrets. The play also addressed the social topic of absent fathers and how important family unity is. Things weren’t much better when Uncle Ben: The Wedding returned in 2013, with tensions running high, as Uncle Ben argued with his son in law Robert, as well as finding out he may not have long to live.

So this year we have even more drama! With lots of tears, fights and secrets coming out! After the shocking news of his illness and an enlightening dream Uncle Ben is on a mission to be a better person. He invites his neighbours around for a party from all different nations. After a phone call from the doctor confirming that he is free of cancer and the problem in his stomach was actually trapped gas!

There’s more to this pantomime story, so to find out more keep a look out next week!
