Red Ridding Robbin Hood stops at Rowandale Schools

Rowandale School was so lucky to end the second week of school with a bang with the performance of "Red Ridding Robbin Hood" by the New Zealand Playhouse. 

Here is a blurb about what the show was all about:

King George has lost the plot! In his never-ending quest to build bigger palaces, giant walls and enormous statues of himself he has raised the Land Far Far Away tax rate to 101%! Jack and Jill can’t afford to get a pail of water, Little-Bo-Peep has to sell her sheep, and even the Princess is so hungry she ate the pea.
When even the bravest of Knights are too scared to stand up to him, the Land Far Far Away cries out for a hero to put a stop to the madness of the King.
Luckily their cries are heard by a mysterious red hooded figure with a bow and arrow, a basket of goodies and some very unlikely ‘Big Bad’ backup.
As well as a performance that will have you laughing all the way through, the play will challenge your students to think about traditional gender roles, bravery and standing up for what's right.

Here are some of the characters that we captured!















When we reflected about the play in our classroom we had these ideas:
  • Don't judge others
  • Be fair, make sure its making everyone happy
  • Believe that you can do hard things
