Jim, a young girl, is desperate to join up with Robin Hood and become a Merry Man. Meanwhile the evil sheriff is up to no good, raising taxes and imprisoning Jim’s parents. He kidnaps Robin’s sweetheart Maid Marian and determines to marry her. All of which sets up the glorious finale when the Merry Men conceive a cunning rescue plan. A refreshing new take on the old legend, with Robin and his (very) campy followers, the Merry Men, two villians in the evil Prince John and the even eviller Sheriff of Nottingham, and an outrageous dame, Jemima Gusset. An enjoyable evening for the family with a hilarious mix of fun, music and adventure that is guaranteed to please.
