THE legend of Robin Hood has stood the test of time.

Good overcoming evil is nearly always a pantomime theme, but this year’s show, with daring hero Robin Hood outwitting the evil Sherriff and rescuing the Babes, is told by the youngsters of Grange and District Amateur Operatic Society.

Producers of the show say they do it with such enthusiasm, that it is almost possible to hear the swish of the arrows as they hit the targets on stage.

Fun and laughter, audience participation, the youngsters bring it all for the audience's enjoyment. The scenery is provided by Helen Lawler, beautiful period costumes from Hilary Stubbs.

Props featuring dynamite, bows and arrows and castle towers are provided by Sarah and Steve Shires. The stage manager is Jim Robson while Bob Somerset provides quality sound and lighting.

The production team is made up of Jean and Mick Malkin, Ann Heap and Gillian Darrington.

Tickets are available from Grange Information Centre or by calling 015395 34026. Performances are tomorrow (Dec 7) at 7.30pm with two matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2.30pm.
