A ROLLICKING tale of tights and fights will greet audiences of North Cottesloe Primary School’s Year 6 production.

Robin Hood and The Sherwood Hoodie is a hilarious retelling of the well-known story.

When the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his guards threaten the villagers of Sherwood, feisty Maid Marion hires a group of freedom fighters for protection.

But when Robin Hood and his Merry Men arrive, she soon discovers they’re not exactly what she ordered.

Performing Arts specialist Linda Arnold said she rehearsed with 23 students for three hours a week for more than two months.

Production dates are September 24-25 from 7pm at The Subiaco Arts Centre.

Tickets are $20 from North Cottesloe Primary School’s office.
