Babes in the Wood is one of the all-time classic pantos. The story sees the wicked Prince John planning to have the children of his brother King Richard, disposed of so that he can claim the throne of England for himself. To this end, he enlists the help of the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham to help him achieve his aim of becoming King of England. But they reckon without schoolteacher Nellie Nettles and her TA, Bugsy.
The Babes are kidnapped by the Sheriff’s henchmen and taken away to the woods to be done away with. And aided by Maid Marion and Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Nursie and Bugsy they set out to rescue them and thwart Prince John’s evil plans.
Will the Babes be saved and returned to the ample bosom of Nursie? Of course they will. To find out how, order and read the panto script in full.
