A FAMILY musical full of fun and adventure will be showing at Weston's Playhouse theatre.

The cast of the popular pantomime, The Adventures of Robin Hood, will be entertaining audiences in the High Street venue on February 18 and 19.

The story follows a famous outlaw by the name of Robin Hood and centres on the olden days in merry England where he lived in the green glades of Sherwood Forest.

Audiences are invited to join the hero and his band of merry men as they steal from the rich and give to the poor in order to defeat the sheriff and secure Nottingham for the king's return.

It is rumoured that no archer ever lived that could speed an arrow with such skill as Robin, which is fortunate for the inhabitants of Nottingham as with king Richard away from England, the vile sheriff is ruling with an iron fist.

Bruce James Productions is bringing the show to Weston following numerous successful visits in the past.

With scenery and costumes that never cease to amaze, the production truly is Robin Hood as it should be.

Performances will take place at 1pm and 4.30pm.

Tickets, priced £9, £7.50 for children, £28 for a family and £7 for groups of 10 or more, are available on 01934 645544 or via
