Meet our swash-buckling hero, our leading man and a man so great they named a Panto after him… Robin Hood – played by Katy Gardiner!
Katy has been a member of BATS for over 9 years, joining shortly after the birth of her 2nd son and is now into her 3rd year as Chair of the group.
During this time she has enjoyed many roles on stage including Seraphina in ‘A Rose Tattoo’, Alice in our production of ‘Home by Christmas’ and Dandini in ‘Cinderella’. This will be her 7th Pantomime and her first as Principle Boy in the title roll ‘Robin Hood’!
Other roles undertaken within the group include Director, Assistant Director on ‘Wizard of Oz’ and many, many hours of choreography.
Katy is delighted to have been cast as Robin Hood this year, much to her surprise, as she is usually much more comfortable in a comedy sidekick role in the Pantomime world. She is also extremely proud to be sharing the stage with both of her sons, for the first time!
