Robin Hood panto at the White Rock Theatre

The White Rock Theatre’s Christmas pantomime is back! Robin Hood marks the return to the magical family pantomime that Hastings’ biggest stage is known for. The show has comedy, beautiful costumes, stunning special effects, dance routines and sets all presented by the same creative team that delivered the pantos Aladdin and Jack and the Beanstalk.*

Leading the cast is performer, dancer and former Strictly Come Dancing professional Brendan Cole as the daring, dashing and brave Robin Hood. By his side through thick and thin is Will Scarlett, played by Hasting’s favourite panto comic Ben Watson. For the fourth year we welcome back Hasting’s top Dame, Tim McArthur as Dame Dotty Longbottom.

Robin must watch out for the evil Sheriff of Nottingham (Adam Strong) who will surely try to thwart every plan of Robin and his band of Merry Men. Our heroic outlaw will need courage and all his wits on the adventure that lies ahead, and will he win the hand of the beautiful Maid Marion? (Frances Dee).
