For this year’s offering Lochaber Showstoppers would like to take you far back in time, to the green and not so pleasant land of medieval Britain, where living slightly outside the law is the only way to keep clothes on your back and stop your tummy grumbling! Yes we’re off to Sherwood Forest to follow the adventures of Robyn Hood and her (yes, that’s right, her) Merry Women (that’s right, women!) as they struggle to help the poor and hungry folk of Nottingham make ends meet! You’ll also meet the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his handsome nephew, Murdo Marion, some pretty rubbish guards called Grog and Gruel and a host of other characters, as Robyn Hood tries to do good and not get caught. But she’d better watch out, that dastardly Sheriff has got a few tricks up his sleeve! Let Esther the zany jester lead you on your way through the twists and turns of life in Sherwood Forest, where cunning and stealth go hand in hand with love and loyalty. So sit back now and enjoy the show. Ah go on, go on, go on….and don’t forget to Boo!
