Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch’s traditional panto spectacular, the heroic Robin Hood, opened on 30 November to glowing reviews. London Theatre 1 called the production ‘a thoroughly enjoyable festive treat’, and TheatreLife said ‘It was a great night’s entertainment and we thoroughly enjoyed it all’. Hornchurch Life said 'The whole night is a lot of fun and it might be my favourite panto so far!’ John Barr, who garnered rave reviews for his turn as Dame Dotty Trott in 2018’s Jack and the Beanstalk, returns as Nanny Fanny, Maid Marian’s hilarious nurse, and is sure to delight audiences and critics alike. He says ‘I am overjoyed to be returning to Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch in Robin Hood, it’s a fantastic theatre and I can’t wait to see all the boys and girls, mums and dads, nannies and grandads again this Christmas!’ Written by Andrew Pollard and directed by Douglas Rintoul (the Queen’s Theatre’s Artistic Director), this actor-musician panto is twanging to the beats of pop hits from across the decades, traditional audience participation and laugh out loud family silliness. Over 50% of the tickets are now sold, so audiences need to get their skates on to book for this Sheriff-busting Christmas adventure! The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is also overjoyed to announce Romford McDonalds as principal sponsor of this year’s pantomime, Robin Hood. This sponsorship will play a vital role in making Robin Hood an unforgettable show and spread the festive fun throughout Havering.
