ROBIN HOOD & HIS MERRY MEN – THE PANTOMIME by Matthew Filmore

£5.00

The good people of Nottingham are at their wits end. The evil Sheriff, left in charge in the absence of King Richard, has been taxing the citizens mercilessly for his own wicked gain. But will anyone stand up to him?

Enter our hero, Robin Hood! Robin, along with his adopted mother Mrs Hood (who grew up “in the hood)’, run the local tavern. A chance meeting with the beautiful Maid Marion, followed by witnessing the Sheriff’s guard’s extracting every last groat from a poor defenceless old couple, leads Robin to determine that he is the one who must stand up to the Sheriff. But he can’t possibly do so no his own!

With the help of his best friend, Will Scarlett, they set out in search of a band of Merry Men willing to join him and finally defeat the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. But will they succeed? Will Robin be able to win the hand of the fair Maid Marion? And will Mrs Hood be able to keep hidden the identity of Robin’s true parents?

A thrilling, plot driven ride through Nottingham, with jokes a plenty, this pantomime has all the elements of a traditional pantomime (Oh yes it has).
