Première: Castle Theatre Wellingborough 10thh December 2010
'Robin Hood at Wellingborough’s Castle is a real surprise cracker of a show.
Definitely more of a musical than a seasonal production and certainly a hit more with the older members of the audience.
An original script and music by Stephen Plaice and Grant Olding, this is a show that should have a terrific future at any time of the year and not just as a seasonal offering. In this case huge congratulations must go to Director James Bonas.
One of the stars of the show is the set designed by Carl Davies - with smooth effective use of the revolve and simple movable props.
Three gentleman of the cast are eye catching, all for very different reasons. Richard Grieve for his dashing good looks and smooth engaging singing voice as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The joker of the pack, Philip Scutt as our clown Clutterbuck who is simply brilliant with his every move. Last but not least is the warm, gentle Friar Tuck played by Duncan Smith who combines narration and character with an excellent singing voice.
This is where contemporary singing styles and music meet comfortably with a traditional tale. Robin Hood at The Castle is definitely this season’s must see.'
