About Us

We are based in Pinhoe, near Exeter in the south of the UK. Every year, we put on a magical pantomime. If you live, work or can travel to the area, we would love to see you at one of our shows. We are always ready to welcome new members, so please check out our News and feel free to get in touch or come along to one of our auditions or readings.

Pantomimes are usually held in January, at America Hall in Pinhoe. We are all volunteers helping out in many areas from being a member of the cast, producing, choreography, making costume, scenery and props to lighting, sound, being a member of the stage team, front of house, publicity, box office and playing in the band.

Auditions are normally held in June or July with rehearsals every Wednesday at the United Reformed Church Hall in Pinhoe and some Fridays at America Hall or other local venues.

Our Members are very enthusiastic and as well as the annual Pantomime, we also  stage other events and some Summer Shows,  which are normally a variety show with a meal during the interval – a real piece of community theatre!

We were very fortunate to be awarded a grant from the Awards for All, Lottery Grants for Local Groups; this money paid for our new sound equipment. We are grateful to our local councillor who arranged for us to receive a further grant towards the cost of our professional sound desk.

If you would like information on joining us and becoming involved in some traditional family entertainment please contact our Secretary or Chairman, who would be pleased to hear from you!

  1. Can I please say a BIG thank you for your mention in this years programme in memory my late daughter Hayley Frankpitt. It meant so much to know she was remembered and thank you for the love you sent to us too. Hayley had so many happy memories of her time in the various panto productions – I have the photos to prove it! Wishing you all the very best for the future and thank you again for the kindness you have shown
