Journey into the depths of Sherwood Forest and discover the hilarious truth behind the legend of Robin Hood in this great 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!

The curtain rises on our poetic playwright and narrator Billy Wigglestick, who sets the scene, introduces Maid Marion and cues the energetic opening number, "Sherwood Forest". We meet the villagers of Sherwood, including Marion's over-protective guardian Nursie and her short-sighted nephew Will Scarlet. Through some humorous banter we discover the villagers' dislike for King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham, and Marion urges her neighbours to help her stand up to them. The Sheriff arrives, flanked by his gang of gormless guards, and proclaims that all taxes are doubled. Despite the villagers' complaints, Marion's insults and Nursie's "charm", the Sheriff cannot be dissuaded and demands his money by noon before sweeping off, followed by his men. Unable to pay, the villagers sadly prepare to move out. Nursie and Will discover an advert in the local newspaper for The Merry Men - a team of highly trained professionals - and Marion decides to send an urgent letter to hire them immediately. Nursie calls her troupe of young scouts (known as the Skunks) to help track down the heroes and deliver the letter, which they happily agree to do and all sing "Helping Hand".

The action moves to Robin's camp, where we discover the Merry Men in an energetic fight scene. However, it soon becomes apparent that they are actually rehearsing for their latest show, for they are not soldiers but a troupe of wandering entertainers! Robin, the over-acting actor, Big and Little John the comedy ventriloquist act, Friar Tuck the mysterious magician, Much Muscles the hairy strongman, Alan A Dale the eloquent musician and the ever shimmying Dancing Dave of Doncaster. We learn that their bookings have dried up, so they are delighted when the Skunk Scouts arrive with Marion's letter explaining that she has some visitors coming at noon and needs the help of the Merry Men to give them "a welcome they'll never forget". Excited at the prospect of performing in front of a live audience once again, they sing their show-stopping signature song "Men In Tights".

Our barmy bard Billy Wigglestick returns to introduce us to Nottingham Castle and the evil King John who is sat on his throne, petulant and depressed at his poor popularity rating in the press. In an effort to lighten his mood, the Sheriff summons the overly cheerful dungeon master Gavin and his strange assistant Genghis. They bring two prisoners, ridiculous robbers Grabbit and Bolt, and begin to torture them with ticklish feather dusters to amuse their sad sovereign. Their torture is short lived, however, as their comical flattery of King John persuades him to release them and make them the Sheriff's new henchmen. A reluctant Sheriff agrees and together they set off for Sherwood.

Back in Sherwood, the Merry Men receive an enthusiastic welcome from the excited villagers. They are further impressed with their so-called 'heroes' when Robin declares that The Merry Men will slay their visitors in the aisles and knock them dead. Will Scarlet displays his dubious archery skills and his comically rebounding arrow eventually hits its target of a rubber chicken, much to the delight of the Merry Men who invite him to join their troupe. When Marion takes a closer look at Robin's business card, however, she finally discovers the terrifying truth about her new friends - just as the Sheriff arrives with his guards and henchmen. Robin introduces himself to the Sheriff and when his Merry Men suddenly appear, the surprised guards scatter in terror, swiftly followed by Grabbit and Bolt. The Sheriff attempts to escape but is stopped by Robin as Will enters with another display of his short-sighted archery. As the Sheriff cowers behind the villagers, Will's wayward weapon accidentally finds a new target and a dazed Sheriff emerges with the arrow stuck right through his head. He exits screaming, to the delight of the villagers and the disappointment of Robin and his gang. When Marion reveals the truth behind her mistake, everyone is shocked - not least the Merry Men, who realise that they have inadvertently become outlaws. However, Marion concludes that fooling the Sheriff is the way to win, and persuades Robin and the Merry Men to take on a new acting role - to become 'The Sherwood Hoodies', fighting for freedom, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor, led by their heroic leader Robin Hood. Instantly flattered, Robin agrees and all sing the rousing anthem "He Will Be A Hero".

We return to Nottingham Castle where Gavin and Genghis inform King John of their new torture equipment, 'The Squisher', which rolls out prisoners until they are completely flat. When the terrified henchmen, guards and Sheriff return, King John is furious to learn of the gang of Hoodies who now protect the Sherwood villagers and he instructs the Sheriff to deal with these outlaws. The Sheriff tells Grabbit and Bolt to return to Sherwood as secret spies, capture Robin and "take him out".

Meanwhile in the forest, Marion is directing her performers in their new roles as 'Sherwood Hoodies', robbing from the rich. They are hopeless heroes, however, and each attempted robbery collapses comically into chaos. The Sheriff has a secret meeting with Grabbit and Bolt and lends them his kidnapping kit in order to capture Robin, warning them that the outlaw may be in disguise. They spy Marion muttering to herself and believe her to be Robin in a devious disguise. Despite their incompetence, they eventually manage to kidnap Marion and take her back to Nottingham Castle. When the Skunks discover Marion's fate by cleverly deciphering the tracks on the ground, Robin declares that they must work together to rescue Marion and all sing "If We All Work Together".

Back at Nottingham Castle, Grabbit and Bolt reveal their mistaken kidnap victim to King John and the Sheriff realises that, with Marion as bait, Robin will soon walk into his trap. As they leave to prepare, Robin and his rescue party arrive and split up to find Marion. After some comical creeping, however, our heroes are caught and dragged to the dungeon, where Gavin and Genghis are delighted to have new guests to torture in their Squisher. Robin and the Merry Men raise spirits with the uplifting song "Singing All Over The World" and, moved to tears, Grabbit, Bolt, Gavin and Genghis decide to release the prisoners. At that moment, the Sheriff enters to halt the escape - only to be knocked out by a quick-acting Will. The Sheriff stumbles into the Squisher and re-emerges as flat as a proverbial pancake. Relief is short-lived, however, as King John and his guards appear and threaten to execute Robin. Thankfully, before the axe can fall, Will enters for his final feat of anarchic archery and this time his arrow results in a painful surprise for King John - and quite a different surprise for everyone else! To seal King John's fate, King Richard makes a triumphant return to reclaim his throne, punishing the wrong-doers, honouring the Hoodies and awarding Robin with the accolade of his dreams - an Oswald statuette for Best Actor. A final poetic verse from Billy Wigglestick brings the story to a happy conclusion and a reprise of "Men In Tights" provides the show's spectacular finale!

Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies

"This is written in true panto style and I have seldom seen a profession panto which is more entertaining In the writing. This has practically a laugh a line and is very sophisticated and well written, considering it is a play written for children to perform. The adult audience loved it and also a 7 year old said she liked it so much she wanted to see it again, and was it on You Tube! Our play ran for an hour. We also used 1920's costumes. The songs are great and I keep singing them.... I can even remember the ones from last year's "Pirates' of the Curry Bean" - Craig Hawes, we need more please!"

Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies

"This year the juniors preformed Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies; it was exciting, entertaining, and funny. The jokes were hysterical. The parents laughed at most of the jokes. Caitlin was Bodkin and Cassie was Big John/Little John. Our favourite song was "Men in Tights" because you can do silly dances and you get to whisper a chorus. Our favourite characters are Big John/Little John and Bolt. We liked Little John because he has a squeaky voice and can be funny. Big John was good because he wants to be as good as Little John and Bolt because he has loads of jokes to say. Our favourite scene is scene 7 because Nursie keeps making noises when Will told her to be quiet. Craig Hawes is a spectacular pantomime writer, we hope he will make more pantomimes because our children and parents loved Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies. The script was full of jokes especially Bolts jokes."

"Hello my name is Chloe this year my class did a play called Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies. My character is called Grabbit. I enjoyed this play a lot. I found it enjoyable, exciting and hysterical. I had a partner called Bolt. He was amazing at acting and had lots of jokes. My favourite song was 'Merry men' because it was our finale song and had a dance routine. My favourite scene was scene 3 because that was when all the hysterical jokes happened. My favourite character is Nursie she was funny. Hiya guys my names Leah I played Gavin Gutwrencher. I thought it was the best play our school has ever done. I enjoyed all the laughter in the play but some people were laughing when the parents were laughing. My favourite song is 'Singing all over the world' because there was a 3 part harmony and it went really well. My favourite scene was scene 7 because well firstly I went on and took Marion to the dungeon but the best part was when Nursie was running round and it made lots of fart noises. My favourite character was Robin Hood because he was excellent and he had a lot of fun on the stage and didn't forget any of his lines. Robin Hood was an interesting character. Well everyone enjoyed it and every pupil learnt their lines and enjoyed it themselves. Our finale was the favourite for everyone else because almost everyone was on the stage for the last scene and they were on the stage for the finale so thank you for the play. Chloe and I recommend it for other pupils and schools. I hope you write more plays for everyone to enjoy and have a laugh. Thank you very much."

"We both enjoyed playing in robin and the Sherwood Hoodies. I [kaiden] was a guard. I really liked the first scene where we introduced the Sheriff of Nottingham. If I had to pick my favourite character it would be Nursie because she had lots of jokes making me laugh my socks off. I thought this play was amazing with all the funny scenes and silly jokes. My favourite song was Merry men because we had a dance to go with it. I really liked this play and I really recommend this play to other schools. I [Eleanor] was Nursie and I loved all my silly jokes [especially when I ran across the stage]. I must say though if I had to pick a character it would be Nursie as well. I thought this play was outstanding with all the hilarious jokes and crazy costumes. My favourite song was Singing all over the world because of the final part were everyone sang in groups and it sounded beautiful. My favourite scene was scene seven where Nursie did the trumping across the stage because it was really funny. I really recommend this amazing performance to other schools. "

"Hello I'm Gracie and I am Ryan, this year I played King John and Ryan played Inkhorn in our school play Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies. We loved this year's play because there's a mixture of goodies and baddies. The jokes are hilarious and they made us giggle throughout the play. My favourite song has to be Men in tights because all of the Merry Men are on stage singing and dancing and the people on the sides are doing a dance routine , (that one of our teachers created.) Our favourite scene is scene 7 because Nursie was walking and the floor was creaking and then she started running. The face she pulled was so funny we could not stop laughing .The character I liked the most was Big John/ Little John because of the voices, one loud voice, and one squeaky and I liked it because it was different. I'm Ryan and my favourite character was King John, because he actually acted like a real king. We recommend this play to many other schools as our school enjoyed it loads!"

"Hello I am Ryan and this is my friend Aiden. Last night I played the role of Robin Hood in the play Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies and might I say what a thrilling experience it was. I am Aiden I played a guard it was really magnificent. Men in tights was our favourite song because I (Ryan) had a solo in it and it had actions to go. Our favourite scene was number 8 because Will hit the sheriff on the head with a gold-plated bonker and got squished. Also I won an Oswald because King Richard gave one for being a really good actor. All in all our favourite character was Nursie Gerty Gusset; she had really funny jokes ( and a bit of gross humour ). We think this is the best concert we have ever done and would absolutely love to do this glorious performance of a life time again."

"Hello my name is Katie and last night we did the most exciting play ever. It was called 'Robin and the Sherwood hoodies'. I played the wonderful Maid Marion. I thought that this play was suitable for not only children but also for adults because they loved the jokes especially when 'Nursie gerty gusset' ran on stage and loads of fart noises were made. My favourite song was 'He will be a hero' because I got to sing a solo part. My favourite scene is scene 6 because Grabbit used a gold plated bonker and whacked me on the head with it, I fell into Grabitt and Bolt;s arms and they carefully dragged me off . Hello my name is Malea and I took part in an AMAZING play. I played the role of Alan a dale one of the Merry men. I enjoyed it very very much because it is such a funny play , I loved all the jokes but one in particular it was "yes we stole a calendar , yeah we had six months each" . My favourite song was 'singing all over the world' because I thought the harmonies were really entertaining and our audience loved it . My favourite scene was scene two because me and the Merry men had to dance and sing to a really fun song. My favourite character was Bolt because he is so funny to watch. This character was played by my friend Dylan and he played it really well and he was really fun to watch . Honestly I loved it and I would do it over and over again if I could and for you to write this play you must be really talented."

"Hello my name is Dylan and I was taking part in your play, and my role in the play was one of the two stupid spies; Grabbit and Bolt. I was the stupidest, I was Bolt. Hello my name is Jenna and I'm Dylan's partner writing this review. I was a villager in your play which is Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies. I rated this fabulous, hilarious and entertaining play 5 stars because it was written by a matching amount of quality because it was established and published by an talented writer which made the play way much better. Also when we preformed this spectacular play we made some parents cry with our singing. My favourite song is (Merry Men In Tights) because we came up with some actions with the song as well, which even made it more fun, but all together the spectacular play is the one of the best I've ever done. My, favourite scene is scene 5 because me and my partner in the play which is Grabbit, and the Sheriff of Nottingham plan to capture Robin Hood, but we made a mistake and because Marion was talking about Robin Hood we thought that she was Robin.My favourite scene (Jenna) is 7 because Nursie runs then she makes farting noises and everyone laughed. My favourite character was Nursie because she was really good at the acting that she had to do to stay in role as Nursie, also some of her jokes were quite hysterical, and I busted out laughing. Please write more plays just like this."

"I've been putting on musicals with my year sixes for 10 years now and this is probably my all time favourite. Rehearsals never got boring and were always full of laughter. Jokes were close to the knuckle which the children really enjoyed delivering and hammed up their delivery to perfection - they had the audience laughing through both shock and laughter.

"Great Play- Funny jokes and catchy songs. I would recommend this to any teacher with an enthusiastic class. From the villagers Robin Hood, this play will bring laughter to all audiences. Brilliant! "

Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies

"If you are looking for a funny musical then look no further. We had non-parent adults saying this was the best musical they had ever seen - at any age. Hilarious for everyone involved and the songs are a joy. MusicLine has everything needed for a successful show for a first-time director and the script gives plenty of room for veterans of the craft. Can easily work with 3rd grade (American schools) and higher actors. The only bad thing about doing this show is lowering audience expectations the following year. Thank you, Craig!"

Robin And The Sherwood Hoodies

"A Perfect recipe for a successful production: Start with simple set changes, add beautiful songs and a hilarious script, stir in plenty of jokes for older folks, mix together a few fart scenes and King John's bare bottom and you've captured the hearts of young audience members. This is by far my favorite Craig Hawes musical!! "

"It was a great show to do; the songs and script were easy to follow and the "Dance" CD was an inspiration. It had us all on our feet dancing along. Brilliant!!"

"We have just finished two showings of this play-I think it's the best we have ever done. Like a real panto-plenty of jokes, lively characters and superb costumes-with lots of tights!! The children and staff have really enjoyed it, as have the parents."

"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! "
