Would you like to hear the legend of Robin Hood? If your answer is “I Sherwood,” then hitch up your gauntlets and get ready to laugh. You see, it’s a little known fact that the famous English bandit was a bit of a klutz. As a kid he practiced with a bow and violin instead of a bow and arrow, so naturally to fight the king’s injustices he needed his famous band of women. Women? That’s what you get when you send Little John to do the recruiting! But just as the ladies are persuaded that after they steal from the rich they have to give the goodies to the poor, Robin is tricked by a rhyming witch and is taken captive by the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. At the palace, King John holds a festival to trap all of Robin’s followers. Will swordplay and derring-do, plus a lot of cheap tricks, allow goodness to triumph over evil and Robin Hood to win the hand of the lovely Maid Marian.
