DRONFIELD Light Opera Group’s reputation for pantomime – the group has done more than 30 over the years – takes another step forward next week with a new production of one of their old favourites – Babes in the Wood.

Set in the badlands of Sherwood Forest, the show casts the Sheriff of Nottingham (played by David Allen) as the wicked villain and Robin Hood (Lindsay Ashmore) as the hero. They both vie for the affections of Maid Marion – Ellie Ashmore.

Surrounded by Merry Men and daft duo Block and Tackle - Julie Ballin and Clare Stokes - the show has all the usual fun including a cooking scene, black light extravaganza and audience sing-song.

Said producer Andrea Powell: “Yes, there are all the usual ingredients because we believe that’s what our audiences like. They come back year after year but we always try to give them something new in a shiny re-packaging of the old pantomime stories.”

The show has two sets of babes, Declan Ryder and Stephie Ashmore; and Daisy Kerwan and Katie Bricklebank.

Babes in the Wood opens on Friday, January 18, at 7.15pm and will be staged on January 19, 20, 24, 25 and 26 at 7.15pm with matinee performances on the Saturdays and Sunday at 2.15pm. For performance details and tickets, call 01246 416364.
