Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood will be the sixth consecutive rock ‘n’ roll panto at the Gatehouse Theatre since its return in 2012.


This hilarious version of the traditional tale provides a rock ‘n’ rolling rollercoaster of an adventure story, as Robin Hood attempts to outwit the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, free the unfortunate Babes and their outrageous, oversized Nanny, Nellie Nightnurse, and marry the beautiful Maid Marion.


The result is a fast, furious and funny feast of festive entertainment, designed to delight all the family. 


A talented cast of actor/musicians will once again serve up over twenty rock and soul classic songs, including The Hippy Hippy Shake; I Shot the Sheriff; Girls Just Want To Have Fun; Kiss; Born to Run; Signed, Sealed, Delivered and many, many more. The whole family will be tapping their toes and clicking their fingers whilst enjoying all the magic, slapstick and audience participation of a traditional panto. 


Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood the rock ‘n’ roll panto will open on Thursday 7th December 2017 and run until Sunday 7th January 2018. Tickets are priced at £20 adult / £15.50 concessions / £66 family, with school and group discounts available via the box office only.


Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood will also see the return of the ever popular late night adult only performances. Due to increased demand for these shows, an extra date has been added to the performance schedule for 2017/18, meaning for the first time there will be three adult only performances on Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th and Friday 5th January 2018.* 


*Early booking for these performances is strongly advised as tickets are again expected to sell out fast.
