James Tobias and Rochelle Parry of Immersion Theatre Company are thrilled to be returning to their second home in Henley with the Kenton’s most exciting pantomime yet, Robin Hood. The pair return to the Kenton stage having starred in the theatre’s first three professional pantomimes in which they played Buttons/Cinderella in Cinderella, Aladdin/Genie in Aladdin, and Captain Hook/Peter Pan in Peter Pan.
Follow the exciting escapades of the dashing hero and his loyal band of merry men in this madcap, medieval romp, as Robin fights to restore justice for the people of Sherwood, win the heart of the beautiful Maid Marion and rid the land from the avaricious Sheriff of Nottingham once and for all.
With heaps of audience participation, thrilling sword fights, archery contests, spirited heroes and dastardly villains, experience a Christmas treat like no other as this much loved tale is given an exhilarating twist in the Kenton Theatre’s most spectacular pantomime to date, perfect for the entire family! This will be the first time Immersion Theatre Company has produced the Kenton’s pantomime, despite having brought numerous shows to the Kenton stage such as Wind in the Willows, Rapunzel, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, and The Importance of Being Earnest.
James Tobias said: “We are extremely excited to be producing this year’s pantomime. The Kenton and indeed, Henley-on-Thames, has such a special place in our hearts both professionally and personally, not least as the Kenton stage was where I proposed to my producing partner and fiancé, Rochelle Parry. Having been in the Kenton’s first ever professional pantomimes as well as visiting regularly, we have an excellent understanding of the fantastic audience the pantomime attracts and what they want. We are extremely excited to be producing Henley’s biggest pantomime yet which will be stuffed full of local references, impressive routines, and of course, audience participation. We look forward to returning.”
