2018 Panto Wonky Willy

Writer, director & performer Brian Short writes......

The cast and I are always pleasantly surprised to see the tickets sell out each year in October, then start to panic as we realise we have a short time to cobble together a show to repay you for your support. This years's offering is no different. You might be forgiven for thinking that this year's show Wonky Willy is a medical condition, but our show is more about The Chocolate Factory as opposed to Peyronie's Syndrome.

We spend very little of your money on props, scenery or for that matter anything that looks like talent. Our panto performers are very much amateur ones, and need to be viewed  in that frome of mind.  So, with all the caveats, excuses and pleas for leniency in place, sit back open mouthed as we give you Wonky Willy.
