Original Pantomime Script by Alan P Frayn.
Directed by Leonie May Dash
Dick Whittington has the makings of a cracking pantomime in all respects – an interesting, well-known story, strong, colourful characters, diverse locations and one of the best baddies in the business – King Rat! It also lends itself to plenty of action, comedy and business. I hope you will agree that this version makes the most of these advantages and contains all the necessary ingredients for a first-class, laughter-packed production.
C.U.D.O.S. (Crewkerne United Dramatic and Operatic Society), as the name suggests, is based in Crewkerne and we put on four shows a year in The Victoria Hall. They are all great fun to be a part of, not to mention a hit with our audiences.
Known on the circuit as one of the friendliest societies in the area, we have a membership that tends to stay with us and we always welcome new members, and so the society keeps growing. Our membership fees are the lowest around and we have no rehearsal or shows fees; once you have paid the annual membership everything else is covered.
Every year we stage a pantomime in January, a play in May, a musical in September and a Christmas Concert in December.
The large hall, now owned by the Town Council and situated above the Town Hall in the centre of Crewkerne. It is used on a regular basis by

The hall has an 8 person lift, bar and toilets. It is a fully Licensed Premise with comfortable chairs
