THE KELVEDON Players are stealing from the rich to give to the poor this month in their production of The Pantomime Adventures of Robin Hood.

The theatre group will be taking to the stage with their adaptation of the classic tale from Friday at The Institute in Kelvedon High Street.

Written by Toby Bradford and Tina Webster, the show is brimming with mayhem and merriment as the legendary Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men battle the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his idiotic henchmen Nickit and Scarper, to free the land from tyranny.

Both Robin and the Sheriff are distracted by the beauty of Maid Marian while her nanny, Nora Tittle Tattle, adds another level of nonsense and fun to the show.

Performances will be held on Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 2.30pm and 6.30pm and Sunday at 4.30pm.

Shows will also be held on January 31 at 8pm and February 1 at 2.30pm and 8pm.

Doors open half an hour before each show.

Tickets £7 or £5.50 concessions (no concessions for evening February 1 performance.) Available from the Box Office, The Master Butcher, Kelvedon High Street or 07742 532192.
