Milton Keynes Theatre has announced that television and musical theatre star Shane Richie will lead the cast in this year’s pantomime Robin Hood.
The pantomime will run at the Milton Keynes Theatre from December 8th until Sunday January 13th with tickets starting from £14.
Shane will star as everyone’s favourite hero Robin Hood as he strives to win the hand of the beautiful Maid Marion. Robin and his trusty band of Merry Men will take on the evil Sheriff of Nottingham in a show which is full of action, adventure, music, laughter and audience participation.
Michael Harrison, managing director of Qdos Entertainment’s pantomime division said: ‘I’m thrilled that we have managed to secure Shane to star in Robin Hood in Milton Keynes this year. He is a true showman who can do it all, and is a true stalwart of pantomime. Hot on the heels of Cinderella last year, which audiences and critics loved, we can’t wait to bring panto back to Milton Keynes for the 2018 season.’
Emma Sullivan, Theatre Director at Milton Keynes Theatre said: ‘We are delighted to welcome the return of Qdos Entertainment to Milton Keynes Theatre following the roaring success of Cinderella last year. Robin Hood is a new title for the theatre and with Shane Richie heading the cast audiences are promised a real pantomime treat.’
We do love a panto!
