‘Oh yes he did!’ Robin Hood and his Merry Men wow their Fenland audience

THERE was plenty of audience participation and shouts of “he’s behind you” when CATS performed the traditional panto Robin Hood at Wimblington Parish Hall.

The audience may not have been huge - but everyone had a great time, as Robin Hood, his Merry Men and Maid Marian tried to outwit the evil Sheriff of Notingham.

James Moss, chairman of the Community Amateur Theatre Society, said: “The show went down really well with the audiences, a lot of people have told me that they thoroughly enjoyed it.”

The show was staged on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, with a matinee on Saturday.

James added: “We had a cast with an age range of six to more than 60, and everyone really enjoyed performing.”

Anyone who would like to get involved with CATS’ summer show is invited to attend a meeting at Wimblington Parish Hall on Thursday January 31 at 7.30pm.
