Preview: Adventures Of Robin Hood In Cooksonville at South Shields Customs House


The Customs House Panto will really hit the target this Christmas


The Adventures Of Robin Hood In Cooksonville

South Shields Customs House

Thursday 24th November 2022 - Saturday 7th January 2023

South Shields Arts Centre The Customs House will be taking a trip down to Cooksonville Forest this Christmas to tell the legendary tale of Robin Hood. Their wonderfully wacky interpretation of the classic Howard Pyle story, entitled The Adventures Of Robin Hood In Cooksonville, is sure to be another rambunctious family panto from acclaimed duo Ray Spencer and Graeme Thompson, the writing team previously responsible for award-winning pantos including Snow White and Beauty and the Beast.

The hilarious Dame Bella will be all a quiver as men in tights ride through the glen and into Cooksonville, but Bella and her hapless son Arbuthnot will need to watch out for the sheriff and his evil henchmen Bog & Roll.  Packed with cracking comedy, dynamic dance routines and spell-binding stories, the little panto with the big heart is the perfect way to get the festive season off to a spectacular start.

The Adventures Of Robin Hood In Cooksonville will feature a sterling mix of Customs House panto favourites alongside a host of new faces, who together will deliver another a magical Christmas panto for young and old. Confirmed cast so far is Ray Spencer as Dame Bella Ballcock and Davey Hopper as Arbuthnot. The full cast announcement is expected in the coming months.

The Customs House Executive Director; Ray Spencer commented: “We have waited a long time to announce our return to Cooksonville, bring your in-laws to meet our outlaws and let’s fill the room with love and laughter this Christmas”

Adventures Of Robin Hood In Cooksonville is sponsored by Hays Travel and Colmans.
