SYNOPSIS: Prince John has decreed that the citizens of Nottingham pay weekly taxes or face the penalty of death. His decrees are enforced by the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. The citizens think that all hope is lost until they hear word of a noble hero, Robin Hood of Locksley. Robin Hood, with the help of his merry men (which are mostly girls) rob from the rich, give to the poor, and save the fair Maid Marian. This comic retelling of the story includes thumb wars, missed cues, and a slow motion fight.

"Hilarious play! Well written and easy to cast! The students loved the witty barbs and different take on the story."
By RayeAnne DeSoto - Director - GRMS Drama Club
I have always enjoyed the adventurous nature of Robin Hood and this one has all the action and suspense with a lot of humor in between. The play allows for big, cartoon like characters and a variety of talent levels. Add in the fact that the characters refer to the script throughout the show and that the merry men are actually a bunch of girls (because in a high school drama department, girls outnumber the guys) and you are sure to have a performance that will have the entire audience rolling in their seats.
