Year 5 Deliver Lots of Laughs with ‘Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies’

Last week’s Year 5 musical production of ‘Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies’ was a brilliantly funny version of the classic tale. As the villagers of Sherwood face threats from the Sheriff of Nottingham, Maid Marion decides to take matters into her own hands. When she hires Robin and his Merry Men, a group of performers she takes for freedom fighters, a tale of mistaken identities unfolds. 

Farcical characters and comic confusion kept the audience in stitches while catchy musical numbers and energetic dance routines added to the enjoyment of the evening. The pupils showed off impressive musical skill and comic timing during the performance, clearly relishing their time on stage. Brilliant direction by Mr Dalton, complemented by the musical talents of Mrs Zurcher and Mr Wright, and lighting provided by Miss Innes all contributed to the terrific production; a real demonstration of teamwork and the energy and talent of Year 5.
