A FRESH TAKE ON THIS CLASSIC TITLE, COMBINING THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD WITH THE TRADITIONAL TALE OF BABES IN THE WOOD

Legend tells the story of courage and friendship as Robin and his trusted band of Merry Men try to outfox the greedy Sheriff of Nottingham.  Meanwhile, Nurse Nellie Nickerlastic is desperately trying to protect the Babes from the clutches of the Sheriff’s bungling henchmen, Snivel and Grovel. 

It’s fun and frolics all the way with a hilarious schoolroom scene, not to mention the mayhem of Nellie’s haunted boudoir! Cram-packed with comedy, this true pantomime version offers plenty of Chorus involvement, audience participation and honest-to-goodness family fun! 

Can be staged with just 3 main sets, but there’s no shortage of opportunities and suggestions for the more ambitious.

"...The stories of Robin Hood & Babes in the Wood are often combined and this gives the author ready-made heroes and villains from the first and victims from the second.  The author is taking nothing for granted and carefully establishes each of the characters.

Our Dame arrives in the form of Nurse Nellie Nickerlastic and she is appointed to look after the Babes, Sam and Ella.  The village has been without a teacher for the last 10 years, so Nellie assembles a class of everyone who hasn’t been educated.  This permits us to have a schoolroom scene where the puns come thick and fast.

There is much in this script to recommend it.  I particularly enjoyed the business of the Sheriff’s henchmen, Snivel and Grovel, trying to blow up the safe and there is plenty of action and audience participation to keep even the youngest children happy.  It is a complete script with detailed stage directions and suggested songs and this is a fine telling of this composite story.”
