Babes in the Wood 26 Jan ... 7 Feb 15

Holsworthy Amateur Theatrical Society (HATS) presents a traditional family panto, suitable for all ages and with plenty of opportunity for audience participation – Oh, yes it does!
This year, HATS' annual panto is Babes in the Wood, written by Stephen Duckham and directed by Phil Barfett.
The hero of the show is gallant Robin Hood, who has to save the orphaned Babes (Jack & Jill) from their wicked Uncle, the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Sheriff plans to murder the Babes for the money left to them by their Father. Robin is ably supported by his band of Merry Men, good fairy Green Willow, and the lovely Maid Marion. The evil Sheriff is encouraged in his wicked ways by the equally horrid witch of Sherwood Forest, Nell Nightshade and his two bumbling henchmen, Floggem and Whippem. No panto would be complete without a dame, in this case, the Babes’ nurse, Jemima Jollop, who manages to fall in love with the Sheriff! Will Robin and his Merry Men halt the Sheriff’s evil schemes? Will the Babes escape the scary skeletons and ghoulish ghosts? Will Robin get the girl and live happily ever after? There’s only one way to find out! 

Here's a sneak preview of what to expect...
