When Baron Hardup becomes the new tax-collector, the once nicest man in Pantoland turns into the nastiest in the land. And if anyone doesn’t pay up, his bailiffs take payment in kind.

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep.

Little Boy Blue’s horn has been confiscated and sold on ebay.

Little Jack Horner has been evicted from his corner.

And now Mother Goose is being threatened with eviction.

But things are not what they seem, and the reason for the Baron’s sudden change becomes clear, when the evil Witch Grizelda is revealed to be the power behind the throne.

This story, cleverly manages to weave lots of well-known pantomime and nursery-rhyme characters, into a traditional panto storyline of good versus evil.

The Robin Hood Youth Group intends to bring to life this traditional pantomime style in their own inimitable way.

Company · Stroke of Genius Community Theatre Company
Production · The Waiting Room by Carolyn Drury and Cliff McArdle
Date · 14 to 18 July 2020
A new musical comedy from Carolyn Drury and Cliff McArdle

This is an affectionate look at the National Health Service with special reference to Suningsby Surgery which, like the NHS in general, has its share of problems. Too many patients and not enough doctors for a start. The Practice Manager keeps trying to bridge the gap by employing Nurses with so-called special skills and a Pharmacist who keeps trying to cut down everyone’s pills. The patients aren’t happy even though the Receptionists have had special training in how to smile and be pleasant to people.

The Doctors are an interesting bunch and enjoy their work, most of the time. They are always busy and have learnt how to deal with the large assortment of characters they meet each day. The genuinely ill, the hypochondriacs, the pensioners and the babies, all human life is here. They have all done their share of waiting: waiting on the phone to speak to someone, waiting for an appointment, waiting to see the doctor and waiting to go on a waiting list. Now we all know where the word ‘patient’ comes from!
