Hats off to The Rojales Pantomime Group!

HATS EVENT: Everyone rose to the challenge.

For more than 12 years The Rojales Pantomime Group have been thrilling audiences both old and young with a yearly pantomime, raising over €18,000 for various local charities.

THEY have brought happiness and laughter to all their audiences who loved to participate with booing and hissing at the baddies and cheering for the goodies.

But alas, the evil King Corona Virus has put the kibosh on their next production which was to be the very hilarious Treasure Island, due to be performed in January 2021.


After losing their rehearsal venues and the production theatre, the group had no alternative but to cancel the pantomime until, hopefully, a date in the future.

“Our intrepid thespians will not be beaten….. oh no they won’t…. so to ensure that the Group that plays together stays together, monthly social events are being arranged by our very busy Social Secretary, Dee such as the dinner enjoyed at the Indian Ocean at Dona Pepa,” said a Rojales group spokesperson.

“We were all tasked to make and wear a hat and, as you can see from the photo, everyone  rose to the challenge, some even making their hats from scratch out of old newspaper.   The winner was the fabulous tall pink and white striped creation made by the Group’s Secretary, Sue, who also happens to be our very talented wardrobe mistress.”

The group are looking forward to next month’s entertaining event and if you would like to join or be involved in future productions please email [email protected]
