The pantomime, written by Norman Robbins, is a whirlwind romp through a world of fantasy which tells the story of Penniless Dame Foxtrot who is unaware her old Grandfather Clock is a magical possession. Years ago the Fairy Queen locked wicked Black Imp inside the clock who menaced Fairyland. If the clock ever struck One the Imp would be freed, so the Queen took away the key. But the wicked Wizard steals the key, frees the Imp, and seeks to destroy Fairyland by using him to get the magic Jewel of Miracles. All is set for a terrific battle between the "goodies' and the "baddies' and after riotous adventures like all great fairy tales, good triumphs over evil and everyone lives happily ever after.
A fun evening awaits with plenty of laughter and opportunities to shout a boisterous ‘boo’ or two at the villains.
Lyme Regis Pantomime Society was founded over 30 years ago and has staged a traditional panto every year including Snow White and The Sleeping Beauty in recent years.
