Rose Theatre announces their 2024 Christmas Production: Robin Hood

Rose Theatre has announced next year’s Christmas production as Robin Hood, written by 2023 Olivier Award winner Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge) and directed by Elin Schofield(Rock/Paper/Scissors, Sheffield Theatres – Winner of the UK Theatre Award for Best Director 2022). The show runs from Saturday 30 November 2024 until Sunday 5 January 2025 with Press Night on Monday 9 December 2024.

Chris Bush said: “Robin Hood is the most enduring and appealing figure from all British folklore. At times like this, when the days are short, the nights are cold, and we often find ourselves with not quite enough to go round, we need figures like Robin to see us through the winter. I’m thrilled to bring a fresh twist on this iconic figure to the Rose next Christmas, for a night full of derring-do, festive cheer, and collective endeavour.”

Christopher Haydon, Artistic Director at Rose Theatre said:“It feels like it’s always Christmas at the Rose – as we gear up to open this year’s extravaganza, Peter Pan, we are also looking forward to next year’s show – Robin Hood!This thrilling Christmassy adventure will be written by Olivier Award winner Chris Bush and directed by Elin Schofield. As ever it will bring professional performers together with our vibrant Rose Youth Theatre to create a show that is joyful, mischievous, and merry.”

Join Robin Hood and his Merry Band for a spectacular festive heist next Christmas!

As winter’s first snow falls, there’s little Christmas cheer in Sherwood. Cupboards are bare, the nights are cold, and the cruel Sheriff of Nottingham squeezes his citizens for every penny they’re worth. But deep in the forest, in the heart of the Major Oak, legendary outlaw Robin Hood plots an audacious scheme to bring some festive joy to all.

Can Robin succeed? Will the Sheriff be defeated? Will the children of Sherwood have anything to celebrate come Christmas Day? Find out when we bring a new chapter of Robin’s adventures to our stage. 

A Rose Original Production, Robin Hood will run 30 November 2024 – 5 January 2025. Tickets are on sale now
