Following the record-breaking success of last year’s Christmas Pantomime JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, we are delighted to announce that Made-to-Measure Productions are returning to Weymouth Pavilion with a brand new Swashbuckling Professional Pantomime production of PIRATES OF THE PAVILION this summer!

We are excited to announce that Weymouth’s Favourite Dame LEE REDWOOD will be starring in this year’s summer pantomime as the hilariously evil DEMONIA THE SEA WITCH. Lee has played the role of Dame in the past four Christmas pantomimes at the Weymouth Pavilion, as well as writing and directing the swashbuckling summer pantomime since it’s first production in 2014, and is delighted to be ‘donning the frocks’ aboard the Saucy Sally this summer! He said:

“It’s great to be back in Weymouth this summer with a brand new adventure for our crew of potty pirates, after huge successes with previous seasons since 2014. The fantastic thing about this professional show is that it really has been written and produced specifically for Weymouth and the surrounding towns. Usually I can be found backstage during the summer, but I can’t wait to join in the fun onstage this time around as a baddie! Last year’s production took a huge step forwards on the ‘Spectacular Scale’ and this summer we’ll be doing the same again, working alongside The Twins FX to provide some real WOW moments during the show! I can’t wait to get started!”

So come along and join Seadog Billy, Buccaneer Becky and Captain Filibuster as they once again lead Max the Mouse, his little sister Molly and the crew of the Saucy Sally on the voyage of a lifetime! Don’t panic though! The Enchantress of the Seas will be on hand to sprinkle some sparkle over the crew of the Saucy Sally, all the while keeping a close eye on Demonia – the Evil Sea Witch who will attempt to foil their plans at every turn!

Featuring Spectacular Scenery, Toe-Tapping Songs, Incredible Special Effects and a full supporting cast of local dancers, this is a hilarious summer pantomime you’d be sharkbait to miss! Get ready for rib-tickling laughter and bags of audience participation as you join our potty pirates on a brand new swashbuckling adventure this summer!
