Robyn Hood Outlaw Princess is a full length, fun, pop musical, based loosely on the traditional tale of the folk hero, Robin Hood. In this fantasy tale, Robyn is a school girl who has a conflict with her school Principal, arguing that there are far more famous men in history than there are women. Robyn's dream will become a reality in this musical where she will become a famous outlaw princess. Please come out and support the young ladies during their performances!  For more information about the spring stage play - please call the school's main office, 302.654.3720!
