Merry time in Sherwood

A SHOW of heroes and villains based around English folklore will be coming to Guilsborough Village Hall next week.

Guilsborough Music and Drama Society (GMADS) will be staging the classic tale of Robin Hood from Thursday, November 29 to Saturday, December 1.

GMADS member Pam Townsend said: “We wanted to do Robin Hood, but we had a look at some of the scripts and they weren’t particularly good.

“It was then that our designer Roger Brandon-Jones said he wanted to write the script and that’s the version we have used.

“He has got some wonderful ideas for the sets which Roger has worked on so it is going to look amazing.

“I would describe it as a show with pantomime elements.

“But we have got the traditional pantomime villain in the Sheriff of Nottingham who will be a cross between Richard III and Alan Rickman. It should be a really good show.”

It will be performed at Guilsborough Village Hall. Performances for the first two nights are at 7.30pm. There are two performances on Saturday, one at 2.30pm and the other at 7pm. Tickets cost £7 for adults and £3 for children. Call the box office on 01604 740549.
