Kat and Alfie Moon are known for their roles on Eastenders but the actors (real names Jessie Wallace and Shane Ritchie) are set to hit the stage this Christmas to take on the roles of Maid Marion and Robin Hood.
Whilst the on screen couple are currently taking a break from the soap, it has been confirmed that they will take on new roles in Southampton’s Mayflower panto Robin Hood over Christmas 2016.
Speaking of the news, Mayflower Theatre Chief Executive Michael Ockwell said:
“Pantomime is always an important highlight of our year at Mayflower Theatre and we are delighted to be bringing such a well-loved pairing in Shane and Jessie to lead our cast of Robin Hood. With their undeniable chemistry they will undoubtedly be the perfect Robin Hood and Maid Marion in what will be the ultimate panto to see on the South Coast.”
We can’t wait to see how the shows go! Tickets are on sale now from 023 8071 1811 or mayflower.org.uk.
