HOODWINKED by Andrew Yates.

Published by Lazy Bee Scripts UNITED KINGOM

This story of Robin Hood and his merry company was sourced from England and is a pantomime in the British tradition of comedy theatre with principal boy, panto dame, and villain with his loyal side-kick. The pantomime brings fun with some new situations for Robin Hood and his merry band to use innovative means to thwart the dastardly sheriff. There will be plenty of opportunities for audience participation.

We are excited to welcome back Joy Philippi as director for our Christmas panto.
