Christmas Shows!

29th November 2018

Christmas time is always a great excuse to indulge in bit of fun theatre and at Gilbert Stephens Solicitors we like nothing more than supporting our local productions, especially when staff members are part of the cast.

This year we are excited to be supporting both Robin Hood which will be performed at the Barnfield Theatre, and the traditional pantomime Aladdin being performed at the Exeter Corn Exchange.

Robin Hood runs from Thursday 20th December to Saturday 5th January and we are very much looking forward to seeing Josie Tapp one of our Support Administrators who has the role of Maid Marian!

“We all know the story of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Little John, Will Scarlett and Friar Tuck – or at least we think we do.

What if we were to tell you the true and unadulterated truth about who really wore the tights in Sherwood Forest?”

This production will no doubt keep you laughing throughout as we discover the true story of Maid Marian and her feisty and impetuous Girlpower Gang, the true story of Robin Hood and his love of wearing green tights and feathers in his hat, his troubles of keeping his wardrobe neat in a hideout in a forest and the true story of the Sherriff of Nottingham ‘Clarence’ who, as it turned out, was a much misunderstood man.

We asked Josie how she was finding preparations for the show: “I am loving being a part of ELTC’s pantomime. I feel very lucky to be working with such a welcoming and lovely group as this is my first ever pantomime! So far there have been lots of amusing moments as 6 hour rehearsals can make us a bit stir crazy! Steve (Snotty Notty) putting on his heels for the first time was a truly fabulous moment.”

Aladdin runs from Saturday 8th December 2018 to Tuesday 1st January 2019 when you can join a host of classic characters for songs, laughter – the perfect Christmas show!

“The most magical and adventurous of all pantomimes will be lavishly presented, with all the fun our pantos are now famous for!  The festive tale is told with merriment and melody- plus a big dollop of slapstick fun and silly sing-alongs!”

What more could you want?!
