PUBLISHED: 13:36 12 November 2010

ROBIN Hood Prince of Sherwood is coming to The Marina Theatre, Lowestoft as the award-winning Lowestoft Players announce their pantomime for January 2011.

The pantomime, which is a brand new production for the society, will see a host of characters including the loveable rogue and hero Robin Hood, feisty damsel Maid Marion, the loveable Will Scarlett and not forgetting the hilarious Dame Tuck.

With nine performances from Saturday, January 22 to Sunday, January 30, this pantomime promises to be full of magical songs, fabulous costumes and never before seen special effects!

Robin Hood Prince of Sherwood also sees a line-up of local talent, with Lee Nevill taking on his first role as leading panto man. He said: “I have always wanted to play the part of Robin; he was a childhood hero for me! I have been involved in many Lowestoft Players productions before, playing the comedy characters and acting silly, so being the hero and playing the leading man is new territory for me.”

Lee, who works as a lecturer at Lowestoft College, joined the society back in 1991 for Oliver!, playing the part of the Artful Dodger.

In recent years he has been involved in Players’ shows such as West Side Story, in which he played the role of Bernardo, and played Simple Simon in Jack and the Beanstalk and Roddy O’Neill in the ’70s smash hit musical Boogie Nights.

With the matinee performance on Saturday, January 29 already sold out, and only nine performances in total, audiences are encouraged to book their tickets now to avoid disappointment.
