As is to be expected, this lively crew engages in swordfights and mischievous trickery whilst they go about setting things right in Nottingham’s Sherwood Forest. But the Arden also gives the classic Robin Hood tale a fresh spin, with its highly physical and interactive production.
Kids will surely get a kick out of the playground-like atmosphere where found objects transform into props. Live music plus sequences with audience participation add an extra kick for all ages.
Like all of its family-friendly productions, the Arden gives as much care and thought to this show as is does for the mainstage. The cast features first-rate thespians. After every performance there’s a Q&A session followed by an opportunity for kids to meet actors in the lobby. To make the occasion even more memorable, all children receive a free commemorative show poster.
