The Press: Review - The York Family Robinson

Mon 19 Dec 2011

Written by Charles Hutchinson, The Press

"Berwick Kaler is back at the top of his Dame game"

The Guardian: Review - The York Family Robinson

Sun 18 Dec 2011

Written by Alfred Hickling, The Guardian

"David Leonard's evil Zantanus is reliably rotten; Suzy Cooper's Rosie Robinson is irresistibly bubbly and Julie-Anna Castro's Man Friday has a spectacular pair of legs for a bloke."

Phil Penfold: Review - The York Family Robinson

Tue 20 Dec 2011

Written by Phil Penfold

"Beg, steal, borrow a ticket. If you can, buy one. You simply won’t find a better, or more efficaciously effective, tonic."

The Pocklington Post: Review - The York Family Robinson

Wed 21 Dec 2011

Written by Julia Pattison

"Berwick Kaler and his Caruso Crew were on the crest of a wave of affection from an appreciative audience of “ babbies and bairns ” who lapped up this new show."

The Press: RE-Review - The York Family Robinson

Sat 21 Jan 2012

Written by Charles Hutchinson, The Press

"This show’s set pieces are right up there with Berwick’s best, especially the classic farce tomfoolery of the bed-hopping, bed-swapping scene and the Dying Swan routine"

The York Family Robinson

York's loudest, wackiest panto returns for it's 33rd year

From York to Whitby and then on to Australia, but will the comically dysfunctional "York Family Robinson" ever reach their final destination? Join them as they challenge the world's most treacherous waters in a desperate attempt to find the only living link with the beginning of time. Laugh yourself silly as they encounter dastardly fey pirates and find themselves shipwrecked on No Man's Land (inhabited solely by beautiful girls - well, until they're joined by the dame!)

Performances: Mon - Sat, 7.30pm (Sat 2.30 matinee and 7.30pm evening, Fri 4.30pm matinee and 8pm evening)

Berwick Kaler - Annie Robinson
Suzy Cooper - Rosie Robinson
