    Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood - All & Sundry Pantomime

    Directed by Alison Beresford

    The wicked and greedy Prince John is desperate to become King, however his brother King Richard’s children stand in the way of him and the throne of England, so he orders the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham to have them kidnapped and disposed of….Permanently!

    The Sheriff in turn hires two hapless baddies, Bashem and Thumpem to carry out the deed and comic ineptitude ensues. The ‘Babes’ are eventually kidnapped by the baddies but they can’t go through with killing the ‘Babes’ and instead abandon them in the woods.

    However in true Pantomime style help is at hand in the form of our dashing hero, Robin Hood and his ‘Merry band of helpers’ assisted by Hayrick, Nursie and her faithful dog, Tyson.

    This is a fantastic, traditional, fun filled Panto, with great set pieces, corny gags, song, dance and plenty of audience participation plus a few surprises on the way….
