Mansfield Hospitals Theatre Troupe staging The Adventures of Robin Hood panto

Posted onPosted on 28th Dec

Rehearsals are well under way for Mansfield Hospitals Theatre Troupe’s annual pantomime.

The Adventures Of Robin Hood, by Brian Luff, will be presented from Saturday, 27th January to Saturday, 3rd February at the Palace Theatre, Mansfield – raising money for local charities and good  causes.

The troupe said Robin Hood is a pantomime full of side-splitting jokes, beautiful costumes, catchy songs, comedy, dancing, and audience participation.

All the family can cheer, boo, hiss, and laugh as Robin comes up against the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham and his sidekick, Denchman the Henchman.

Can he overthrow the mean, money-grabbing tyrant? Will he win the archery contest and win the prize? Will he get to marry the beautiful Maid Marian? Will his hapless mother, Dame Dora, manage to produce cream and jelly at her bakery? Will King Richard save the day?

Mansfield Hospitals Theatre Troupe promises to transport theatregoers into the wonderful world of pantomime, where anything can happen and frequently does.

All profits from the productions are donated to local charities and good causes that benefit the local community, with well over £150,000 raised so far.

Performances are on: Saturday 27th and Sunday, 28th January, at 2.15pm; Monday 29th, Tuesday 30th, Thursday 1st, and Friday 2nd at 7.15pm; and Saturday 3rd at 2.15pm and 7.15pm. There is no performance on Wednesday 31st, but an extra matinee will be on Sunday 28th.

Tickets, priced £10, are available at or call the Palace Theatre Box Office on 01623 633133.
