The Legendary Musical Comedy 

Created by  Halifax’s Shakespeare by the Sea Collective

Directed by Cynthia Myers

Robin Hood, the outlaw of Sherwood Forest, leads a merry life with his followers.  Anyone who is hungry or who has no place to live is welcome in the greenwood.  The citizens of the forest oppose wicked Prince John.  He’s taken the place of King Richard the Lion-Hearted, who has gone to the Holy Land on a crusade.  One day a caravan cuts through the wood.  In the convoy is Robin’s childhood sweetheart, Maid Marian, ward of King Richard.  Alas, the evil Lady Merle of Cornwall plans to force Marian to marry the Prince in an effort to make John more acceptable to the people of England.  To arms!  It’s up to Robin to stop the marriage, defeat a nasty sheriff and secure Nottingham for the king’s return.  It’s all done in rousing fashion!
