Robin Hood and his merry men will grace the Playhouse stage next month but the ever-popular pantomime returns with a twist.
Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood, written by Ben Crocker and directed by Bex Hutchins and Christie McLucas, promises to be a crowd pleaser.
“Our story is set in Sherwood Forest where Robin Hood and his motley crew of outlaws are stealing from the rich to give to the poor,” Bex explains.
“Maid Marion has fled into the forest to escape the clutches of the evil Sheriff of Nottingham who wants to take her as his bride!
“When her true identity is revealed our hero is immediately smitten and it looks like Marion feels the same way!”
Christie McLucas is looking forward to including lots of music, dancing and laughs.
“Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood is a fun for the whole family pantomime musical that will be sure to make the audience roll down the aisle with laughter,” Christie said.
“We have some great songs and dancing and the cast has really thrown themselves into the spirit of it and we’re sure the audiences will join in the fun too.”
Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood will be on for six performances – December 3, 4, 10 and 11 at 7.30 pm, with matinées Saturday December 4 and 11 at 2 pm.
Bookings are now open. The Playhouse box office will be open from 10 am to noon on weekends (in person or on phone – 4153 1904), or online.
Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for concession, students and groups of 10 or more.
“We are looking forward to panto returning to the Playhouse stage and giving our audiences of all ages a good laugh in the lead up to Christmas.”
