Swiss Family Robinson is the classic tale of survival on a desert island, with each member of the family, including their dog, using their wits, strengths, skills and ingenuity to build

themselves a new home and fit in with their new surroundings.

Performed by multi-award winning comedy theatre company New Old Friends, the show is packed with stunning shipwrecks, wonderful wild animals, glorious gags, marvellous machines,

stupendous songs and witty wordplay.

The Travers Foundation, which helps youngsters aged between 13 and 30, living in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, with funding to help achieve their full potential in sport,

the creative and performing arts, has worked with the team at the Corby Core Theatre for a number of years funding various projects.

office on 01536 470 470.

This special TRAVERS offer applies to just the two performances on Monday, December 23, on 1pm and 7pm.
