Photo Flash: ROBINSON CRUSOE Opens To Rave Reviews At Greenwich Theatre

On Friday 30 December Greenwich Theatre welcomed the press to the opening night performance of Robinson Crusoe, the latest in a long line of traditional celebrity-free pantomimes at the South London venue. The performance was met with a rapturous response, hailed by the British Theatre Guide as "a riotous evening of pantomime joy". The show reunites dame Andrew Pollard - "one of the industry's greatest" (British Theatre Guide) - with arch-villain Anthony Spargo ("surely one of the greatest Villains of all... his performance is a masterclass in villainy" British Theatre Guide).

The cast also includes Lizzy Dive, Arabella Rodrigo, James-Paul McAllister, Matt Jolly, Michaela Bennison, Tom Guest, Mia Yuill, Ejiro Richmond and Sarah Dare.

The cornerstone of a festive theatre programme that also includes the world premiere of Knitmas: A Winter Yarn by SharkLegs Theatre Company, and the return of the ever-popular Christmas Comedy Club 4 Kids, Broadway Baby stated that Greenwich's 5-star hit "delivers belly laughs a-plenty that'll make the little'uns squeal and the adults howl in equal measure... If you want a hilarious, family-friendly, intelligent and truly local panto, it really doesn't get much better than this. Greenwich Theatre once again prove they know how to do Christmas better than Santa Claus."

Robinson Crusoe plays until 13 January in a specially extended run.
