SUMMARY OF SHOW: Everyone knows the classic tale of Robin Hood, the story of the handsome, brave, intelligent hero of the people. Well, this is exactly that: Robin Hood. Except this Robin Hood features an intelligent and no nonsense Maid Marian, eloquently speaking Sheriff, a babyish and spoiled Price John and an empty-headed, yet endearing, Robin Hood. This show features fight scenes, sea-shanties, goofy moments, romance, and heroism all bundled in one. Robin Hood and his Merry Men take on the tyrannical stand-in ruler that is Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham.
