Star of Groundling’s Theatre pantomime, Robin Hood, has been busy visiting our great city’s top sites and attractions, but has discovered he’s lost some of his gold coins!  To help find them, Groundlings Theatre is offering a reward of a free pantomime ticket for any returned gold coin.  To be one of the lucky winners, follow their social media where clues will be revealed from this week.


If you aren’t lucky enough to find the gold coins, in the true spirit of Robin Hood, Groundlings Theatre has made all panto tickets this December £15 each or £50 for a family of four.  So, no matter how old you are, what day you come, or where you sit – the festive fun can be experienced by all in the unique cabaret style seating of our Grade II* listed auditorium.


The theatre’s Executive and Creative Director, Tobias Robinson said ‘Robin Hood will be coming to Portsmouth to face off the evil Sheriff and win the heart of Maid Marian.  With exciting escapades, sing-a-long songs and all the classic panto gags, audiences can get ready to cheer for the goodies, boo the baddies and have a wonderful Christmas with our merry hero in tights as he comes to save us at the Groundlings Theatre’.


Cast for the Panto includes returning Groundlings favourites, actors Daniel McCrohon from Portsmouth, as the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham and Chichester based, Ryan Moss, as the lovable Colin Hyacinth.  American-Italian actor Paolo Parodi who is currently based in London, will be making his Groundlings debut as the dashing Robin Hood.


To provide further festive cheer to the local community, Groundling’s Theatre Trust have also partnered with the Salvation Army to be a drop off point for people to donate toys, gift sets or tinned food for families in need, as part of their Christmas Gift Drive. Major Alec Still of Portsmouth’s Salvation Army said ‘It is a tough time of the year for a lot of families, particularly this year in the cost of living crisis, we are delighted to be partnering the Groundlings Theatre to help those families in need this Christmas’.

The Groundling Theatre’s pantomime, Robin Hood, will be shown from Thursday, 8th December to Saturday, 31st December with over 40 performances by their professional cast supported by a local ensemble.  Located just 5 minute’s walk from Portsmouth Harbour train station, The Hard Bus Interchange, Gosport Ferry and Wightlink catamaran, it is accessible to all.
