Babes in the Woods - the panto!
Director: Claire Streets
Writer: Roger D. Buist
The Sheriff of Nottingham has been guardian to youngsters Colin and Claire after their father vanished during the crusades. But that evil Sheriff wants the ‘babe’s’ inheritance and has hatched a dastardly plan.
Will his evil sidekicks Sir Marks and Sir Spencer do his bidding? Or will Robin Hood save the day, with the help of, hot stuff, Ivy Fire, villagers Teeny Bopper and Willie Waitaminute…and of course, Maid Marion?! Who are those mysterious magical characters and the question everyone wants an answer to - do we still have a bar and icecreams at shows? Oh yes we do!!!!
Stay Tuned for announcements!

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Radio Play
MAD presents the Radio Play, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (part 1, or ‘Fit the First’) by Douglas Adams.
In the first few weeks of lockdown back in April, MAD decided to try our hand at a radio play. Through the next few months some members met virtually to rehearse this production. The experience not only allowed us a creative outlet, a social connection with a familiar process and ‘something to do’ but it also was a huge learning process for everyone.
The cast not only produced all the character voices, they also created as many of the sound effects as possible using anything they could find! All the ‘music’ was also created by members. We learned the best ways of gathering individual ‘voices’, and were able to involve those not able to join the virtual rehearsals. Each voice or effect was collected individually and edited together - another skill we had to learn!
So please when you listen, understand that the creation of this production is our first attempt at this type of production. We are still editing ‘Fit the Second’ which should be completed by the end of October. We hope you enjoy listening even half as much as we have enjoyed making this.
This has been a ‘not-for-profit’ production.
