‘A real joy to rehearse and perform - catchy songs and hysterical script made it non-stop fun for pupils and parents alike! I’m still singing the songs in the car!’
- DF, Head Teacher, Gamston Primary School, UK.
Journey into the depths of Sherwood Forest and discover the hilarious truth behind the legend of Robin Hood in this brand new musical comedy! From the writer of Pirates Of The Curry Bean and Porridge comes a toe-tickling tale of tights, fights and footlights. And living and writing in the heart of Sherwood Forest himself, who better than best-selling author Craig Hawes to lift the lid on the legend you thought you knew!
When the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his gormless guards threaten the villagers of Sherwood, feisty Maid Marion hires a band of freedom fighters for protection. But when Robin and his Merry Men arrive, she soon discovers they’re not exactly what she’d ordered! With no time to lose, she persuades these hapless heroes to take centre stage for the performance of their lives - if only they could stick to the script!
Follow the most outrageous outlaws in history on their side-splitting, action-packed adventure to defeat the dastardly Sheriff, storm Nottingham Castle, rescue Maid Marion and overthrow King John - all without laddering their tights!
This hysterical show is a riotous romp through the medieval mayhem of Merry England, splattered with shocks and surprises, crazy characters and comic capers. With a score full of catchy, show-stopping songs and a wonderfully witty script as sharp as an arrow, this musical comedy is on target to send you all a-quiver!

A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is now also available to accompany Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies! This CD-ROM teaches the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof. Just give it to the children and they’ll do the rest.
Also available for Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies is another BRAND NEW product called "Dance it!". This choreography DVD teaches the children the dance steps for the songs in Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies. Watch each song performed by a group of age-appropriate children in two different versions; a full speed ‘Performance’ version and a slowed down ‘Step By Step’ version with helpful narration to guide you through the dance. Introduced by Craig Hawes, the DVD is also packed with lots of handy hints for teaching dances. Absolutely no previous experience or expertise is needed!
Also available is a CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.
