CAVERSHAM Primary School has recreated the tales of Robin Hood in its production, Hoodwinked.

About 70 students from Years 3 to 6 took part in the acting cast and choir.

They held a performance in two parts – a matinee at 1pm and an evening show at 6.30pm on June 27.

Costumes were provided by Marloo Theatre in Greenmount while Midland Photographics also helped form the production.

Drama teacher Amanda Eversden said she and the choir teacher wanted an opportunity for the children to perform on stage.

“It is a plot of Robin Hood who steals from the rich and gives to the poor and overcomes the wicked evil sheriff,” she said.

“The main message is that good always overcomes evil.”

She said students learnt lyrics to songs and the play, how to act, vocabulary and stage positions.

“Students have given hours of in-school and after school time for rehearsals, showing dedication and commitment,” she said.

She thanked Areeg Almadanat and Christie Van De Kar for volunteering their time for the production.
