Hobgoblin Theatre Company’s brilliantly original, outdoor production of The Unusual Adventures of Robin Hood, tells the classic tale of Robin and his Merry Men outwitting the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham (with more than a little help from Maid Marian) and of course stealing from the rich to give to the poor. But this time they are singing.

This musical romp is full of audience interaction, physical comedy and laugh-out-loud moments. The hilarious characters, fast-paced plotting and catchy songs will have the audience singing all the way home.

This production has been years in the making. “We’ve been creating theatre for children in schools for over fifteen years,” says Hobgoblin’s Hannah Bowen. “In that time, we’ve learned how to make a Five Star hit! We know what works. Children let you know when they’re bored, so this show is exciting, hilarious and full of heart. The audience won’t have a choice but to be swept away with it.”

“This has been as much an adventure for us as it is for the Merry Men,” adds the show’s director Dan Foley. “We’ve worked very hard to make sure it’s not just kids that are going to love this show. We’re going to make sure that every member of the family will have a blast.”

“The outdoor setting for this show couldn’t be better. The audience is instantly transported to the world of Sherwood Forest,” says Dan. “There is a reason people are still telling tales of Robin Hood and his message of kindness couldn’t be more appropriate, especially at the moment. We could all do with learning to be a little bit more Robin!” This production is suitable for the whole family from 4 to 104.
