Chippy Panto gets great reviews!

Robin Hood at the Theatre Chipping Norton has received great reviews from various reviewers and newpapers including The Stage, Libby Purves and The Times -

ranking it as one of the top 5 pantos in the country!

**** THE TIMES "Chippy panto is resolutely traditional: no tacky celebs, no re-hashed pop songs, just charming old-fashioned fun. This cosy, characterful little theatre has a contagiously jovial atmosphere. It couldn’t be more fitting for a sweet-natured family show."

**** The Stage

"A laudable effort, Robin Hood is a well-assembled, artfully silly production.. – an imaginative pantomime that impresses as it entertains."

Libby Purves,

“ absolutely cracking, proper pantomime directed with gleeful inventiveness in storybook sets and with fine songs.... No stupid smut, no weary pop songs, no bought-in megastars doing their standard ‘turn’. Just wit, storytelling, enough participation to keep the young happy, and all the traditional elements woven in without any exhausting overkill”.
