HOODWINKED BY YEAR 3 AND 4
Last week the curtains opened on Year 3 and 4’s eagerly anticipated production of Hoodwinked.
Our eloquent narrator (Grace Kemble) guided us through the tale: a modern, musical version of Robin Hood.
The villagers were not happy living under the tyranny of the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham (Oliver Butterworth) who was determined to make them pay. They had faith in their hero Robin of Loxley (Joshua Knight) and his band of Merry Men but all seemed to be lost when he was captured and locked away. Thank goodness for the courageous Maid Marion (Skyla Mercer) who took the key allowing Robin to be free once again. He challenged the Sheriff to a fight but unsurprisingly the Sheriff had no intention of playing fair. Fortunately, Richard the Lionheart (Max Belbin) had returned from the Crusade and revealed himself in time to stop the fighting and free Robin Hood for good – although it seemed Maid Marion had other bids on his freedom. The play ended with a rousing finale and, to everyone’s amusement, actual pie in the face of the evil Sheriff.
All the children were outstanding, their energetic performances and beautiful singing lit up the stage. This was made possible by their fabulous team of teachers: Sian Williams, Lisa Crinion and Head of Prep Music, Kay Francis.
