Robin Hood panto at Strathmore Nov. 22

stagThe Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, a very funny pantomime on the subject of Robin Hood and His Merry Men, opens at the Strathmore Community Centre in Loeman Street on Thursday evening, November 22 (8pm), and runs to December 1. There are two matinees as well as six evening performances.

Rachael Holt directs for Strathmore Theatrical Arts Group (STAG) a largish cast of adults and children (from age 8 upwards). This show is one for all the family with a lot of crazy, Monty Pythonesque humour in it.

Robin, with the help of a Merry Man wannabe, simply known as the Town’s Guy, turns this once-simple legend into an hysterical trip through Sherwood Forest with surprises at every turn. Robin’s one and only love, the Lady Marian, remains true to her champion as she assists his crusade by wishing Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham a rash of various skin afflictions.

STAG presents this panto by Mary Lynn Dobson by arrangement with Origin Theatrical, exclusive representatives of The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock Illinois. It is the final play in STAG’s 52nd annual season.

Season: 8pm: November 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30; 2pm: November 25 (Sunday); December 1 (Saturday – no evening performance)
