The Stage Door presents Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood Pantomime

Kickstart the festive season with a trip to this hilarious traditional pantomime. As Robin and his Merry Men and Maids tackle the wicked Sheriff (Boo!), Robin’s young followers The Hoodies are up to their tricks. Red Riding Hood has wandered into the wrong pantomime followed by the Wolf (it’s behind you!), and the two naughty Babes are giving problems to their nurse, Dame Droopydrawers.
