Parents of the Merry Folk


Welcome to the CADS pantomime of 2019!

Back in ye olden days, the village of Cookridge sat at the end of the mighty Sherwood Forest,
and tales spread far and wide about its inhabitants - the legendary hero Robin Hood and the Merry Folk.

Along with Robin Hood and his Sherwood crew, you will find a familiar cast of characters in our show;
Maid Marion, Little John and the nasty Sheriff of Nottingham; as well as some new friends for you to meet.

We hope you laugh, boo, cheer, maybe even dance and sing your way through today's show!

It has been two years since I volunteered the idea of putting on Robin Hood as a pantomime; and I am delighted
in the way the cast and crew have helped me put together our show, and brought it to life in ways I could
never have anticipated - terrible jokes and all!
