Following our highly successful pantomime at The Waterman’s last year (Dick Whittington), St Faith’s Players are returning with our magical production of Aladdin. Join us for a fun-filled adventure as our hero bids to save the beautiful Princess Jasmine from the clutches of the wicked Abanazar. Expect all the traditional panto ingredients – toe tapping tunes, a laundry-full of laughs, loads of audience participation – and a very, very badly behaved panda. A great show for all ages.
Performance dates: 29th Nov – 1st December evenings @ 7.30pm. Saturday matinee at 2.30pm on 1st December.
‘The Ghost Train’ was written by Arnold Ridley who is probably better known nowadays as Private Godfrey in the long running, often repeated TV series, `Dad’s Army’, than as a playwright. The play was first produced in November 1925 and had a very successful long run in the West End and in 1926 it was transferred to Broadway. It is the most well known of the thirty or so plays he wrote through his long career.
This will be St Faith’s Players second production to be staged at the Watermans Art Centre, `Dick Whittington’ was presented in the theatre and proved very popular with everyone involved, including the audiences, so the group will be back there at the end of November with another traditional family Pantomime. ‘The Ghost Train’ requires a smaller, more intimate space so Studio 1 is ideal.
The action takes place in November 1925 in the small General Waiting-room at Fal Vale, a wayside station on the South Cornwall Joint Railway, during one evening. The story of the ghost train is well known to the local villagers who avoid the station on dark wintry nights……

A great traditional family panto presented by St Faith’s Players at the Watermans Theatre.
Be prepared to cheer on our handsome hero and his clever cat, Tom. Boo and hiss at the evil scheming King Rat and laugh at the outrageous antics of Bertha the cook.
