Full of adventure and swashbuckling fun, this retelling
of the famous Robin Hood saga is actually much more
than a frolic in the greenwood. ROBIN HOOD
AND THE FREE PEOPLE OF THE FOREST
tells the story of Diana, a determined young woman
who joins Robin’s band. She turns the Merrie Men
into freedom fighters, spreading revolution throughout
the countryside, bringing tragedy as well as triumph.

This is a 90-minute two-act musical in the Broadway tradition.
Recommended for High School or Junior High performers.

Performed off-Broadway and twice toured by CenterStage Productions.

ROBIN HOOD AND THE
FREE PEOPLE OF THE FOREST
The fiery feminist Diana persuades Robin to join her on a freedom crusade, with unpredictable consequences. In the end, they bring the downfall of King John and the establishment of the Magna Charta. A truly inspiring and delightful story told through breathtaking music and moving lyrics.

Appropriate for all ages. The original CenterStage Troupe performed the show with students ages 5 to 18. Recommended cast size is 34 to 60.

SAMPLE LYRICS
   
OUT OF THE FOREST
from ROBIN HOOD
   
The Sheriff We decide who comes and goes here.
We choose who will live and die here.
We take everything we need here.
Each of us is his own king here,
deep inside the forest.

If you want to travel on our turf just be my guest.
We can treat you to a party, leave you quite impressed.
We can guarantee that you'll be dining with the best.
We'll put on a show that shames and outshines all the rest.
Think you can refuse? Put us to the test.
Think you're being used? There'll be no arrest.
Then you'll foot the bill, we know in us you will invest.
But you won't complain; you'll think that you have just been blest.


   
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
from ROBIN HOOD
   
We can change the world; change it now.
Throw away the chains; free us all.
Build a better land, dressed in joy,
dressed in forest green.

We can be their strength, be their flame.
Rescue them from hell, from their shame.
Show them how to live free of fear, free of tyranny.

The People Revolt

   
IN THE GREAT DREAM
from ROBIN HOOD
   
The Women Sing
All of the hurt and fear building from year to year…
Will the grief be passed on and on, will it never end?
No more killing; show them how life should be lived.
Once we're in the Great Dream all are meant to be free!

Let's wage peace in the Great Dream.
Hate must cease in the Great Dream.
Each must be, in the Great Dream,
Equal and free, in the Great Dream.
