FINAL SHOW: Abbots Langley theatre group raises money for charity with last pantomime

 Published on: 29th December 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

An Abbots Langley pantomime group is putting on their final performance this month.

The Village Moonlighters, who have performed an annual pantomime in Abbots Langley for the past 25 years, is putting on a production of The Three Musketeers.

The show will raise money for The Hospice of St Francis. The hospice cared for the group’s former bandleader, Dave Smale, who passed away from bowel cancer in May 2020.

Paul Wilson, president of the Village Moonlighters, said: “Dave was the heart of our group. He loved good music and bad puns and always laughed at our shows – no matter how many times he’d heard the jokes before.

“We want to fundraise as much as possible to give back to the charity that did so much for Dave in his final days.

“It was during one of our show weeks that Dave was given the news he had cancer. He was so committed to pantomime that the same day he found out, he said nothing; he came and he played for us because he didn’t want to let us down – that was the sort of person Dave was.

The show is being performed at the Henderson Hub between January 12 and 14. To buy tickets, visit
