Pinocchio is here!

Here’s the show you’ve all been waiting for … our 2022 bilingual pantomime PINOCCHIO – PINOCHO.  We do hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed performing it!  The show ran for four nights and from the funds raised 1,200€ has been donated to support AFEMAR in San Pedro del Pinatar, an association and day-centre dedicated to the well-being of people with mental health problems, and a further 300€ will be spent on nappies for the Gota de Leche (Drop of Milk)  project in Cartagena.

The video, which you can access here, has been recorded and edited by Rob Grace and you can find more information and the programme on this link.

¡Hasta Luego, Pinocho! See you later, Pinocchio!

“He’s behind you!”  “Oh no, he isn´t” “boo” “aaah” and other enthusiastic interjections are still echoing in our ears as another successful pantomime has been created, rehearsed, performed on four occasions to four very appreciative audiences.

This year it was the turn of Pinocchio and the story proved a great success with children who shouted advice to Pinocchio as he allowed himself to be led astray by Stromboli, the lame Fox the blind Cat and just about anyone else who came on stage.  There were great performances from Jemima Cricket, the Blue Fairy, Geppetto among others and best of all were the dancers from local primary school Las Esperanzas who became puppet dancers and naughty children who turned into donkeys.

There will be more information to follow shortly about how much money has been raised and which charity it will be donated to. Thank you to all our faithful supporters and all of this year’s newcomers. See you in 2023!

Pinocchio – coming soon!

We are thrilled to announce this year’s pantomime PINOCCHIO. As usual, it will be full of fun, music and dance and our famed special effects! Tickets are now available. Pass the word around to all your English and Spanish speaking friends and get your tickets soon to avoid disappointment!

Following the tradition established by the ADAPT association, the ADAPT Theatre group, in conjunction with our sponsors ADAPT Metal Detectors, has once more donated essential school materials to the children of Las Esperanzas primary school.

We are delighted that our working relationship with the school is able to continue and look forward to their participation in this year’s pantomime.

On Friday 29th July, under the leadership of Rod Toms, a group of metal detectorists were filmed on the shores of the Mar Menor by a professional film crew, working for a well known UK television show. The process actually started the day before at Rod’s house where he explained the work of metal detecting in detail to the film crew and showed them some of the group’s finds.

Friday started for Rod at 4.55 a.m. when he was filmed loading his car with his detecting equipment and they set off for the Mar Menor. “Many of our members were interviewed personally and were able to give interesting and informative answers about all aspects of our hobby. After filming us detecting in the waters of the Mar Menor, the film crew followed me to San Pedro port area where we met up with the Hippocampus scuba divers and donated our July batch of nearly 5 kilos of lead removed from the sea, as part of our cooperation with the Plumbum project. 

“It was a great experience and our club members sent out the message that we are  definitely on the map and to let people know that we are not looters but there to help  protect the environment.”

We will post here when we find out when the programme will be broadcast – watch this space!
