The Old Woman Who Lived In A  Shoe (1997)

Dame Dallymore's orphanage is in peril. She has been unable to pay the rent for ten years, so the cruel Squire wants to make her - and all the orphans - homeless. Just when the situation seems dire, it gets worse, for a Giant treads on the orphanage and smashes it to smithereens! Mother Goose makes the shoe into a home for the orphans and all looks fine - but then the Giant comes back for his shoe and accidentally carries off Princess Marigold, girlfriend to the Dame's son Corydon. Everything works out in the end, but not before all sorts of amusing adventures have beset the loveable and hilarious characters in this lively new pantomime that combines tradition with originality in the time-honoured Norman Robbins style.
