THE legendary Sword in the Stone has been found in Teesside.

Barking up the Right Tree Theatre returns this summer with another wild and wonderful pantomime, The Sword in the Stone.

The theatre company combines an original blend of traditional panto mixed with fast-paced, crazy fun for the whole family to enjoy together, making happy memories.

This prequel to the show Merlin is full to the brim of kings, knights, wizards, sword fights and silliness. It follows the story of Arthur, still a Prince and desperate to live up to his father’s high expectations and the cocky newly-trained wizard, Merlin.

Their new friendship may be the final straw for Morgana, turning a clever young witch into an evil villain and a threat to all of Camelot.

Arthur must find Excalibur, the legendary sword with powers untold, yield its power and become the rightful future King of England, only then can he protect Camelot from all evil. On their wild adventure, the duo meet whimsical characters, encounter challenging obstacles and have a whole lot of fun.
