THE BABES IN THE WOOD
Performed in November 2009, The Babes in the Wood pantomime by Norman Robbins was set in Nottingham, England in 1192. Richard the Lionheart, the rightful King of England, was away fighting in the Third Crusade. In his absence his cruel brother John ruled the country, aided and abetted by baddies such as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Our version of this traditional tale concerned the people of Nottingham - the wicked Sheriff, our hero (and Principal 'Boy') Robin Hood, two innocent Babes, a pair of hapless villains, and our outrageous dame, Nurse Glucose - as well as the beautiful Maid Marion and a handful of rather unusual Merry Men.
The show included beautiful painted flats, which made marvellous backdrops to each scene; richly-coloured costumes (mostly made by our costume department); and energetic dancing and lively songs, many of which were composed in-house.
Our enthusiastic audience in a packed Village Centre booed and hissed to their hearts' content - thoroughly enjoying the occasion.
