Course Information:

"The Unusual Adventures of Robin Hood" is a musical play for the whole family to enjoy together.

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. But this time they are singing! 

This musical show is full of audience interaction, physical comedy and truly touching moments.  The hilarious characters, fast-paced plotting and brilliant 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 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, and 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 been given an amazing opportunity to really think on what elements of musicals, pantomimes and plays audiences enjoy and what bits we aren’t so keen on. We’ve combined the best and discarded the rest!”

“An outdoor setting for this show couldn’t be more appropriate. The audience are instantly transported to the world of Sherwood Forest,” says Dan. “We are beyond excited to be embarking on our first outdoor tour and this show had to be the one to do it with. 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. Not to be missed this summer!
