Pictures of 'Robin Hood and Babes
in the Wood'
Bottisham Players, January 31st - February 2nd,
Director's Note: Peter Denyer, who wrote last year's Aladdin,
has come up with another exceptional script for this year's production,
linking Robin Hood with Babes in the Wood. It is my pleasure
to be the director and I must pay tribute to Jan Wilson for her
excellent work on the choreography and Mark Aldous for the musical
direction. You see before you a refurbished main hall but the
changes this has brought about back stage has been a major problem
for Ted Southcombe and his band of staff and we thank them all
most sincerely for all their efforts.
