Weans In The Wood

Thu 24 Nov 2016


Macrobert Arts Centre's brand new panto for Christmas 2016!

Tickets from £9

Hans No Solo is failing badly at Magic School.  Headmistress Merlina has tried everything but it looks really unlikely he’s going to pass those exams.  And then - horror of horrors - forest hooligan and ASBO-queen Little Red Riding Hood unwittingly robs the pantosphere of all good magic, leaving the wicked Sherffina of Nottingham to run riot with her band of evil minions.  

Will Hans save the pantosphere?  
Will Gretel ever get a joke to tell and not just be relegated to simpering Disney-esque princess?  
Will Merlina catch the eye of someone in the audience and get her happy ever after?  

There’s only one way to find out - grab your magic wands, your dancing shoes and full-on-sing-song voices for this year’s panto extravaganza… come join the Weans In The Wood.
