The Adventures of Robin Hood!

Justine Sewell as Robin & Debbie Pinfold as Maid Marion

Town is Full of Adventure

Whoever said Deal is dead has never been to The Kilshawe Theatre in St. George’s Hall, which is where The Guild Players were performing this year’s pantomime The Adventures of Robin Hood! An original play fromdirector George Elder, it told the story of the legendary outlaw and his battle of wits with the evil Sheriff of Nottingham (Christopher Sewell). Neil Hornsey played a very camp Will Scarlett beautifully and Debbie Pinfold was a stunning Maid Marion complete with Anita Dobson Wig. Justine Sewell played the eponymous hero adequately, though lacked the presence demanded by such an important character and seemed to mistime her thigh slapping all evening. The pantomime dame was a large and frightening Madame Fifi (John Bailey) and the Brownies who bravely volunteered to get on stage were visibly terrified by their encounter with this disturbing she-monster. Keyboard maestro Paul Barnes delivered the musical score expertly, but the true star of the show was Duncan Currie, one of the Sheriff’s henchmen. His fixed grin, zany dancing, madcap antics and comic timing had the audience in raptures. On the down side there were too few smutty innuendoes to keep the adults happy, but panto is all about children and those present seemed happy enough. By that measure the show was a great success.
