The Adventures of Robin Hood
Saturday 12 January 2013
The Adventures of Robin Hood has all the makings of a winter warmer as Oddsocks put a festive spin on this classic English folk tale. Set against the cold, dark winter woods of Northern England The Adventures of Robin Hood will be an energetic, romp suitable for all the family with live music, lots of action and plenty of opportunity for audience participation.
The heart-warming Legend has everything you need for a great adventure with daring deeds, an evil villain who needs teaching a lesson and of course a love story to set the pulse racing. All the well-known characters will be there along with Robin and Marion, Little John, Friar Tuck and the dastardly devious Sheriff of Nottingham – a baddy who’s not averse to squeezing the last ounce of tax out of his honest peasant folk.
Will Robin and his merry band save the people from the evil sheriff’s taxes? Will Robin marry Marion or is Marion not the marrying kind? Will Little John get any bigger? Will Friar Tuck open a chip shop? Find out when Oddsocks rumble in with their rumbustious re-telling of this legendary folk tale for all the family.
