His daughter Emma from a previous marriage arrives from town with her new companion in tow, the dashing James Washington and added to the mix is Sir Walton’s estranged brother Archie, recently returned from years spent in Australia, bringing with him an appetite for mischief and a dodgy accent.
Enter England’s most confused police officer, Sergeant Pratt, who unwittingly kicks a hornet’s nest of English gentility and the evening soon descends into chaos with hilarious consequences.

Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society

Press release- ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’

This Christmas Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society are celebrating 50 years of Copythorne pantomimes with a production of ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’. In 1968 the local British Legion put on a panto to raise funds. It proved so popular that it became an annual event. In 1995 CATS was formed to continue the tradition when the Royal British Legion changed their fundraising rules. Over the years, hundreds of local people have been involved with the shows and thousands of pounds have been raised for charity.

This year’s show has been specially written to mark the occasion and includes all the characters you’d expect, plus quite a few that might surprise you, including some panto ghosts.

Robin Hood has returned from the Crusades to find that the people of Nottingham are in desperate need of help. The wicked Sheriff of Nottingham keeps taking their money in taxes and burning down their houses. Things get even worse when Prince John demands even more money and the Sheriff decides to get rid of his two young wards and marry Maid Marian so that he can get his hands on their lands.

Can Robin rescue the Babes and Marian and defeat the Sheriff? Maybe. With the help of his merry men (and women) and, of course, Nurse Nora, the dame, who knows everything there is to know about the soldiers in the castle, including the bungling Private Eye and Private Parts. A true village panto with plenty of songs, swash buckling and audience participation. The show also features dancers from the Jo Hyne School of Dance, who will bring some magic to Sherwood and a bit of Rock n Roll to Nottingham Castle.

Performances are: Saturday 24th November at 7.30
Sunday 25th November at 2.30
Saturday 1st December at 7.30
Sunday 2nd December at 2.30
At Copythorne Parish Hall, Pollards Moor Road, S04 2NZ
Tickets: Adults £8, under 16s £5, Family Ticket (2 adults and 2 children) £22
Available from Bartley Post Office, Landford Stores and Bramshaw Village Stores or by phoning our box office 02380 813415

Pantomime Backdrops

We have been touring children's musicals for many years and as age has taken over we have decided to close down. Perhaps some of your societies would be interested in some scenic cloths we have for sale at dramatically low prices. We now need the room!!!!!!

Unfortunately as we are based in Central London and the cloths are situated at our flat so we do not have the facility to open them up for inspection. You will just have to trust us in knowing they are all very presentable and in fairly good condition.

We would be grateful if you could send these details to anyone who you think might be interested.
