Robin Hood and His Socially Distanced Merry Men
18 Dec - 3 Jan
Wicked Productions in association with the EM Forster Theatre Present Robin Hood and his Socially Distanced Merry Men!
THE SHOW MUST GO ON! PANTO RETURNS TO THE EMF STAGE THIS CHRISTMAS: FRIDAY 18TH DECEMBER – SUNDAY 3RD JANUARY
Wicked Productions are set to leave audiences in a QUIVER as they return this Christmas to bring some much-needed fun and MERRY MEN-T with this year’s alternative production of Robin Hood and his Socially Distanced Merry Men at EM Forster Theatre.
Following such a difficult and challenging year, the team at the EM Forster Theatre and Wicked Productions were determined to bring some panto magic to families this Christmas. The planned extravaganza Beauty and the Beast has been postponed until 2021, and all ticket holders have had their bookings transferred to next year.
In its place for two weeks in December comes a laugh out loud family pantomime Robin Hood and His Socially Distanced Merry Men. The EM Forster auditorium is a flexible space which allows for safe audience social distancing in bubbles and family groups, and the exceptionally talented small cast are local (some live together) and will maintain social distance from each other throughout the rehearsal and performance process.
While the panto may be socially distanced, it is still an unmissable, family festive show packed full of all the slapstick, crazy jokes, and lashings of traditional panto magic that audiences have come to love and expect from Wicked Productions here in Tonbridge – and the Boombox will be back!
Hilarious duo Michael Fenton Stevens and Tom Swift return to play Dame Tuck and Silly Willy Scarlett alongside Tonbridge Favourites Ed Wright as the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham and Amanda Swift, making a welcome return as Maid Marian. David Young returns as Little John and making his Tonbridge debut From CBBC’s Andy and the Odd Socks Stewart McCheyne plays the lead role of Robin Hood.
Performances range from Friday 18th December through to 3rd January. All tickets for all shows are £29 per person and are on general sale now!
