With no indication from the Government as to when theatres can reopen without social distancing, and no plan to look at this before November at the earliest, the Theatre Royal Nottingham, alongside it’s Pantomime producer Qdos Entertainment, has taken the decision to reschedule its forthcoming pantomime, Robin Hood, into December 2021.
Cllr Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Culture & IT at Nottingham City Council, commented:
“The pantomime at the Theatre Royal has always been the biggest, most spectacular Christmas production in the region with sell-out audiences across the run. Unfortunately, the uncertainty that the current situation brings means we would be unable to replicate this on stage or within the auditorium this year. We have therefore taken the decision to reschedule ROBIN HOOD as next year’s pantomime and look forward to presenting the ultimate pantomime adventure in its rightful home then. Whilst it is clearly not possible to undertake a full scale production this Christmas we are continuing to explore other options with our pantomime partner should the situation change closer to Christmas.”
Customers will be contacted by the venue directly to confirm the date and time of the performance that their tickets have been rescheduled into.
