Robinson Crusoe at the Theatre Royal Plymouth

Get ready for a socially distanced pantomime like never before, in a swashbuckling adventure full of buried treasure, dangerous buccaneers, and a magical journey across the ocean in an all-new production of Robinson Crusoe, created especially for Christmas 2020!

We’re grateful to the support of The National Lottery who have helped us ensure panto can return to the Theatre Royal in this year’s unmissable family production.

The ship-shape pantomime will be performed in one act to minimise the need for audiences to move around the building but will still be packed full of comedy routines, audience-safe participation, and all the unmissable magic that Plymouth audiences have come to expect from their annual festive pantomime.

With an all-star cast including:







This one-act pantomime has been specially created for live, socially distanced audiences. A digital version of the show therefore won’t be available. For more information on the changes we have made to keep you and your family safe whilst in our theatre please click here.
