               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Babes In The Wood

    by Tony Edwards



Synopsis

Pantomime Script: 'Babes In The Wood' by Tony Edwards

The tale of good, bold Robin Hood!  History is bent and stretched a bit in this fast moving tale of treachery and intrigue. 

Nursie looks after the Babes, Amy and Adam, but the bad Prince John wants the Babes killed so that he can inherit King Richard’s throne.

Two wicked robbers, Horace and Humphrey, are hired to kidnap and kill the Babes, but they are not really up to the job, and the Babes escape.

The nasty Sheriff of Nottingham tries all sorts of evil schemes to catch Robin Hood and the Merrie Men, but with the help of Fairy Starlight and Monty the Mole, good overcomes evil, and the return of King Richard from the Crusades puts paid to the baddie’s plans! Robin marries Maid Marion and all is at peace in Sherwood Forest.
 
This panto (with a slightly different story) is available as a shorter children's show.
