RoCo wishes to thank all those members and friends who have helped to make this production possible.

Hilary, Siobhan, Yvonne, Vicky and Maggie are preparing to take part in the upcoming London Moonwalk - a thirteen mile, cross capital speed-walk to raise funds for breast cancer charities, a cause close to many hearts. However, when the sixth member of their team drops out, the surprise last minute replacement certainly risks putting the cat amongst the pigeons!
Sporting decorated bras and posh new trainers, aching feet and heaving bosoms, the Cheshire Cats prepare to march their way to fundraising success, with a few tears and plenty of laughs along the way!

We went to see the new RoCo production on a cold, gloomy November evening, and it proved the perfect antidote, providing both comedic and poignant moments galore.
The storyline followed a group of women from Cheshire raising money for breast cancer by taking part in a charity walk in London. We found out that each lady had her own good reason for walking and these reasons provided some of the most moving lines in the play. As they progressed through their preparations for the walk, their friendships deepened and this bonding process contained many laugh aloud moments.
One of the " Cats " had to drop out at short notice and the last minute replacement was a man. We won't forget in a hurry the sight of Andrew Lamb, dressed in a tutu, skipping through the audience. Another favourite moment was when the railway station announcer was totally unintelligible when giving crucial information to the travellers. We have all been there!
As always RoCo is truly inclusive, and it was lovely to see familiar faces, but it was also great to see so many new, talented actors, a sure sign that RoCo is flourishing.
