Libretto by John Reynolds
ROBYN HOOD: OUTLAW PRINCESS is a lively, fun, 'pop' musical, based loosely on the traditional tales of 12th. century, English folk hero, Robin Hood.
In what is essentially a fantasy tale, Robin is a schoolgirl who has a confrontation with her school headmaster. As punishment, he orders her to write an essay on the lives of famous men in history.
Angrily Robin complains that school history lessons always concentrate on the lives of men. Why weren't there were more famous women in history she asks? She had often dreamed of being a famous heroine.
Her dream becomes a reality in which she re-emerges as Robyn Hood, Outlaw Princess, leading a female band of outlaws.
The story unfolds in a series of dramatic, and amusing adventures centred round an on-going confrontations with the evil Sheriff of Nottingham (the school headmaster) and his dim-witted soldiers, the Heavies.
The final scene is a dramatic treason trial in the marketplace in Nottingham.
