Shanty Theatre Company Fund Raiser Number 2

Last year it was Salty Socks and we raised £1500 for PMF
This year it's to be "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"
Sunday October 14th 2012 in the Hall of South Dartmoor Community College
Performance will start at 6.00 p.m. 
A family musical with wit, half-wits and a massive seagull!
"It is an ancient mariner,
and he stoppeth one in three"
The bunting is up, the tables have been laid and the guests are arriving. The scene is set for the wedding of the century.
But who is that strange old man in the corner with the far-away look in his eye?
Join Shanty Theatre Company on an epic voyage with this entirely new re-imagining of the nautical classic, with storms,
holy hermits, a ghostly galleon, silly sailors, live original music and an albatross with a passion for five-a-side football.
"Water, water everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink,
Water, water everywhere
Nor any drop to drink"
Shanty Theatre Company has turned this well-known tale
upside down and given it a good shake to see what comes out of its pockets.
Expect music, japes and a darn good yarn for all the family.
