Alibarton And The Forty Thieves

1982 Pantomime at Harlow Wood

By Shirley Blythe & Pauline Marples

January 1982 saw another production, this time entitled Alibarton and the Forty Thieves. Mr Barton was the hand surgeon at the hospital, and his name just lent itself to the title.

As you can see from the programme the pantomime had a very full cast of very well thought out names such as :- Wonhanded Berk,  Dr Holmulland,  Floyd Bones,  Mangle Molton,  Ferocious Foster and Mixed-up Milly.

The chorus girls, naughty nurses and wicked sisters were an added attraction as you can see from the photographs.
