Robin Hood, and his band of merry men, will shortly arrive in Kilcock for the annual pantomime presented by KMDS.

Yes, it's panto season everywhere, and KMDS are ready for their annual visit to Pantoland in Kilcock.   Join the most heroic outlaw of them all as the arrow-shooting hero Robin Hood strives to win the hand of the beautiful Maid Marion while he and his trusty band of Merry Men outwit the evil Morticianna and Sheriff of Rottingham in a show full of action, adventure, music, laughter and audience participation.

 

This year's pantomime, Robin Hood and the Sword of Destiny, will mark KMDS's 18th annual panto production, and their first at Kilcock GAA.

Headed by the production team of Dominic Reid (Director), Fiona Shirran (Choreographer) and Mairead McKenna & Andrew Docherty (Musical Directors), the principal cast and chorus will take you on a magical adventure, perfect for all the family.

We’re making the move and need your help

posted 10 Jul 2018, 07:24 by Kilcock Musical & Dramatic Society ‎(KMDS)‎


Would anyone be free on Friday eve (13th) to lend a hand and help us with our final ‘get out’ from St. Josephs?

If so, would you meet us at St. Joseph’s Hall @ 6pm on Friday!

We have an offer of temporary storage space for our stuff - people's generosity knows no bounds!  However, we lack a mode of transport at present i.e. Van or Truck!   We're being put under some pressure to move, so if we could move directly into said storage on Friday it would help us enormously.  We will need to move chairs/flats/tech bars/props. 

Many hands make light work, as they say … and … If you have a Van or Truck and can help us on Friday, you will be forever in our debt!

Thank you,
Sharon Murphy
