Please spread the word, it’s Panto time again. We’ve been hard at it, polishing puns, winkling in innuendo, and generally working up a lather . . . we think we’ve finally got it just right. Now it’s the turn of lots of lovely people to make it come alive. 12th Sept, 7pm in the craft room at the Telegraph Hill Centre.
From 30th November to 2nd December 2012, Telegraph Hill Centre will stage Babes in the Wood.
Babes in the Wood tells the story of Jack & Jill, two young orphans with a fortune . . . and a scheming uncle. Will kindly Granny Smith protect our babes from their uncle, the evil Sheriff of Mottingham? Will Robin Good save the day, rescue our babes and win the hand of Marian?
Come and see the show to find out! There are four shows across three days, including two matinee performances.
Friday 30th Nov – 7.30pm
Saturday 1st Dec – 2.30pm and 7.30pm
Sunday 2nd Dec – 2.30pm
Tickets are £12 (£6 Concessions). There will be a cafe / bar available at Telegraph Hill Centre.
Some tickets will be available on the door but you are advised to book in advance as the Panto usually sells out fast. This show is a fundraiser for Telegraph Hill Centre and all proceeds will go towards the refurbishment of the Centre.

There are good train and bus services from New Cross Gate, New Cross, Brockley, Nunhead and Queens Road Peckham stations. Buses 343 and 484 stop outside. Free on street parking.
Jack & The Beanstalk will play at Telegraph Hill Centre from 6-8 Jan 2012. Click for tickets. And if you are coming to the Saturday matinee we have arranged a special ‘fish pie for a fiver’ deal with The Telegraph – just show them your panto tickets.
What’s it about?
Thrill to the gripping story of a community fighting back against cuts to the community centre’s budget. Kindly Dame Trott and her trusty Jack are aided by pretty Penny, Dozy Den, Dame Dollie and Daisy the faithful cow in a brave fight against Giant Pickles’ axing of the community budget.
Will Jack fall foul of the Giant and Wicked Witch? Will Prunella Profitt and Cllr Ferret’s meddling scupper efforts to save the centre? Will Jack succeed in rescuing the Centre? Will Penny get her Jack? Will the Good Fairy of Telegraph Hill’s spells work against the onslaught of wickedness? Come and see the show to find out!

Watch out for the screening of the film of the play of the fiasco coming soon to a venue near you….
It raised thousands and the Cinderella Memorial Toilet may well now be possible so huge thanks to everybody who made it happen or came and watched or had a laugh or found their inner mad person.
