Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is thrilled to announce that Georgina Field, who garnered rave reviews for her turn as Baroness Hardup in 2016’s Cinderella, will be returning for this year’s pantomime, Robin Hood. This heroic panto spectacular will be playing from Thursday 28 November to Sunday 5 January.
Field is a Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch regular, and has starred in classics such as Return To The Forbidden Planet, Twelfth Night, Godspell and Noises Off.
Baroness Hardup played by Georgina Field, was incredible, she fired up the audience to immediately get their backs up with her wickedness.’ BedrockFM on Cinderella
‘Georgina Field graces us with her presence as Anne Droid, she does well at representing the teenage longing for love and I particularly liked her rendition of ‘Teenager in Love’. Musical Theatre Review on Return to the Forbidden Planet
Georgina Field returns as the evil witch Morgana, and is sure to terrify and delight audiences and critics alike. She says ‘My first panto was at Queen’s Theatre, my sister Nic and I were in the junior chorus of David Wood’s Cinderella (you can still see the poster on the wall in the foyer now) when I was nine. I played saxophone in my band Rhythm Collision in the foyer when I was seventeen before I went to drama school. Then I became a part of The Cut to the Chase Company at Queens Theatre, beginning with the hugely successful Abigail’s Party directed by Matt Devitt. Since then I have been fortunate enough to play in numerous productions here throughout my career. When I walk into the auditorium and breathe in the atmosphere I am inspired by all the shows I have ever seen or performed here.The Queens has had such a huge impact on my growth as an actor and a human being and given me so many precious memories. To be here entertaining families at Christmas time is the best present I could ask for’
Written by Andrew Pollard and directed by Douglas Rintoul (the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch’s Artistic Director), this family friendly actor-musician panto is twanging to the beats of pop hits from across the decades, filled with traditional audience participation and laugh out loud silliness.
