In this classic tale, the singer will take the central role, an outlaw robbing from the rich to give to the poor.

Adding pops of colour and fun are Rainbow’s Zippy and George as Friar Zip and Little George and completing the cast are Graham Cole (Sheriff of Nottingham), Eva Mckenna (Maid Marian), Ryan Greaves (Wally Scarlett), Phylip Harries (Dame Dolly) and Keeley Fitzgerald (Fairy Cher).

The show will be on stage today at 3pm and tomorrow at 2pm and 6-30pm at The Burnley Mechanics.
