Memory: Make Me A World (1976)

“Make me a world” and another show wonderful Christmas shows. Late 60s? Early 70s? (The latter, I think – our 3 young children loved these, and so did we!)

Memory: Treasure Island (1973)

I remember this Christmas production, starring John Clements, had very stirring music. It was very good. There was also a real parrot in the production and I can still remember the parrot auditions now!

Memory: Follow The Star (1974)


  1. I came to the CFT production of Follow the Star when I was a child and I still remember the mad antics of the angels sliding down slides from heaven. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen before, not your standard pantomime and has given me a strong bond with CFT ever since. Thankfully I have moved back near enough to be able to come regularly. Worth a rerun? Would love to bring my children to see it.

2. Memory not too good now but I remember coming to the theatre in the 70s when we were living in Southsea, to see the Christmas panto “Follow the Star”. All very innovative with apron stage and the cast running round the auditorium. Great fun!
