Robin Hood pantomime going ahead
3rd December 2009

THE SHOW for a pantomime will most definitely go on, despite thieves stealing the final draft of scripts and costume designs.

A laptop and notebooks were stolen from a silver Rover 200 after the rear side window was smashed. The car was parked round the back of the West Wing Arts Centre where the Robin Hood Pantomime is being staged.

Producer Alan Bowles, of Little Wolf Entertainment, said: "I had been away from the car for three or four minutes. It was a bit of a shock and quite upsetting but we are absolutely determined to carry on.

"The bag contained a script and costume designs and sound plan, including the backing tracks and sound effects. All were the final copies so we are going to have to go back to the earlier copies and change then. We are all rather manic now.

"The show is absolutely going ahead. It has been a bit hard on everybody especially the guy that wrote the script and designed the costumes but everyone is very dedicated to putting on a great show.

"We are not going to let one person's moment of madness ruin what is going to be a great show for the community."

Rehearsals started in earnest today (Wednesday), before the curtain goes up for the school performances on December 14 and the public performances from December 18 until December 31.

The laptop and notebooks were stolen from the West Wing in Stoke Road, Slough on Sunday last week between 11.30am and 11.59am.

A reward is being offered for the safe return of the items.
