Who’s in itBob Hoskins is the leading "real person" - Roger the Rabbit and other characters are cartoons - very clever !!! Directed by Robert Zemeckis
What’s it aboutIn this trailblazing combination of animation and live-action, Hollywood's 1940's cartoon stars are a downtrodden minority, living in the ghetto-like Toontown. Their movements are sharply monitored by the human power establishment.
The Toons (cartoons, that is) are permitted to perform in a jazzy nightspot, but are forbidden to actually USE the joint. One of Toontown's leading citizens, the rather rebellious Roger Rabbit, is framed for the murder of human nightclub owner Marvin Acme (Stubby Kaye).
Private detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), whose prejudice against Toons stems from the time that his brother was killed by a falling cartoon piano, reluctantly agrees to clear Roger of the accusation.
Virtually every major cartoon character of the late 1940's shows up and the film allows us to believe (at least for 90 minutes) that toons exist, and that they are capable of interacting with 3-dimensional human beings.

Another new face is that of Bryan Shepherd, musical director, who's a member of Broseley's Community Choir - for whom he's done a host of original compositions, and many arrangements. There are several other new faces on the production team too - and they're all intent on keeping up the standard set across the years by Mike Kaiser and colleagues.
Sleeping Beauty's going to maintain the feel for a little bit of romance, fun, lusty good humour,and slapstick that we all expect from panto - oh yes we do !!!
As well as such regulars as Brian Haycock, Nick Downes, Joan & Mike Banks and Steph Tench, Gill's got some new faces in the cast. One is John Sugden who played the weighty role of Sir Thomas More in BroADS' "A Man for all Seasons" last year, but who's playing, this time, a wicked witch of all things! And then, we're told, there's going to be a good fairy "with attitude" - what next??
Great fun ahead !
