Robin Hood – Outdoor Family Theatre
July 22 @ 2:00 pm – July 25 @ 2:00 pm
Sydenham-based theatre company Spontaneous Productions’ 25th original family theatre show since 2017 – and its second outdoor show this summer in Home Park – is a brand new musical adaptation of the classic legend ROBIN HOOD. Full of swashbuckling adventure, comedy, exciting chases, music and lots of surprises, expect one of the biggest and most ambitious of our hugely popular family shows so far.
Nottingham 1211: With a plague spreading fast among the peasant populace, bumbling monarch Prince John and his slimy servant, the Sheriff of Nottingham, have not only introduced compulsory mask-wearing but raised taxes on top. Little does she know what’s in store when peasant girl Robin promises to lead the rebellion against these terrible tyrants. As Prince John marks his hastily arranged marriage to Maid Marian with an archery contest, just who is the mysterious hooded figure comes to challenge for the prize?
The show will be performed in HOME PARK, behind Sydenham Library, SE26 5SE (buses 194, 202, 356 & 450) – just a 10-minute walk from the high street!
