Nottingham comes to Sedgley for pantomime show

Residents in the Black Country are being invited to journey to Nottingham for a theatre company's pantomime show.

Jack Rubery, Jonathan Pountney, Sophie Davis and Darren Thompson star in Rainbow Pantomimes' Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood

Rainbow Pantomimes will present Robin Hood and the Babes in the Woods at Dormston Mill Theatre, in Mill Bank, Sedgley, this week.

The pantomime tells the story of Robin Hood and Maid Marian, in their quest to defeat the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.

Amy Cooper, the pantomime's producer, said: "It is a bit of a different take on the well-known story – the sheriff's niece and nephew come to visit and they end up getting kidnapped – and Robin Hood has to rescue them.

"We have 12 principal cast members, but up to 40 people involved in the show overall. Audiences can expect lots of singing, dancing, audience participation, jokes and laughter – everything you expect from a pantomime. It will be a good night out for all."

The pantomime opened on Sunday and will run until Saturday, January 25. A matinee show, starting at 2.30pm, will take place on January 25. The rest of the shows will take place in the evenings, from 7.30pm. There is no show on Wednesday, January 22.
