Barrow Youth Theatre is about to take you on a journey into the depths of Sherwood Forest to discover the hilarious truth behind the legend of Robin Hood in this great musical comedy!
When the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his gormless guards threaten the villagers of Sherwood, feisty Maid Marion hires a band of freedom fighters for protection. But when Robin and his Merry Men arrive, she soon discovers they're not exactly what she'd ordered! With no time to lose, she persuades these hapless heroes to take centre stage for the performance of their lives - if only they could stick to the script!

Follow the most outrageous outlaws in history on their side-splitting, action-packed adventure to defeat the dastardly Sheriff, storm Nottingham Castle, rescue Maid Marion and overthrow King John - all without laddering their tights!

This hysterical show is a riotous romp through the medieval mayhem of Merry England, splattered with shocks and surprises, crazy characters and comic capers. With a score full of catchy, show-stopping songs and a wonderfully witty script as sharp as an arrow, this musical comedy is on target to send you all a-quiver!

Performances start at 7.00 on Friday and Saturday evenings and there is a matinee on Saturday starting at 2.00. The show is at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road, Barrow upon Soar, LE12 8JU.

Tickets cost £8, £6 (concessions including children and students) and £24 for a family of 2+2. You can buy them from the Paper Shop in High St, Barrow, the library or from a member of the cast.

Truth and Truffles: What a way to start Christmas!


Barrow’s next Centre Stage show is an irresistible blend of humour and heart. Truth and Truffles is a”masterclass in enchantment” (Times) delivered by two wonderfully gifted performers.

This blend of cabaret, comedy, stories, songs and chocolate will be at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Barrow  LE12 8JU  on Friday December 1st starting at 7:30pm. A brilliant way to start the Christmas season.

Truth and Truffles is a fabulous two-header delivered by wonderfully gifted performers, the compelling and masterful storyteller Cat Weatherill and the satirical and hilarious deadpan comic Naomi Paul. This is a captivating and beautifully crafted show for adults, of stories, comedy songs and musings about being a grown up, and the little indulgencies that make life worth living (chocolate).

Truth & Truffles celebrates Life as a 'Grown Up': the ups and downs, the regrets and rewards, the hopes and dreams. It's about finding humour in the way we live now, and savouring the special moments.

Cat Weatherill is a firm favourite with rural touring audiences, captivating audiences the world over with her theatrical style and magical presence. Her stories are beautifully crafted and deeply emotional, with cinematic images that linger in the memory.

Using her Jewish background as a comedic platform, the hilarious Naomi Paul takes her audiences on surreal journeys, from Birmingham to the Balkans via lingerie and libraries. Sometimes poignant, always funny and ultimately uplifting, Naomi is a real winner, earning four-star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 and 2016.

Tickets can be bought from the Paper Shop or the library in Barrow or by Paypal (you don’t need a Paypal account; just use your card). Bought in advance of the show they cost £10, £9 (concessions) and £5 (children under 16).  With the feel of cabaret, you can enjoy our well stocked bar while you watch the show. Disabled access is good, parking is easy and the venue is warm and inviting. This must be the way to enjoy professional touring theatre.

Any enquiries to me, Judith on 07718 153117 or  after November 1st.
