Help create “Robot Hood and his Merry Mechanics” starring cardboard robots designed, built and voiced by you!

This event is at Tamworth City Library, upstairs in the Library Innovation Studio.

Anyone can be a part of Cardboard Robot Theatre – there are lots of things for all ages to do at every workshop, and we are going to have lots of workshops after school, at weekends and even weekdays. We need people from 5 year olds to adults to collaborate on:

  • Writing the stories – Robot Hood will be a number of linked short stories.

  • Making up the songs – and playing the music!

  • Recording the voices – we will record all the voices and music and special effects well before the show, so you can be a part of the final performance right now!

  • Designing the characters – we will need to draw how we want our cardboard robot knights, soldiers, farmers, horses, outlaws and anything else in the stories we write to look, including Robot Hood himself!

  • Building the costumes – we already have some robots, but they need cardboard costumes to wear!

  • Building the robots – we will make robots out of cardboard gears and rubber-band engines, plus some electronic and plastic robotic parts and motors as well!

  • Programming the robots – some of our robots will need coding to get them to move about on the stage, fire an arrow or stand and sing!

  • Drawing and building the scenery – we need a forest and a castle at the very least!

You are welcome to take part whether this is your first time, your only time or if you come every time!

Performance dates will be announced once “Robot Hood and his Merry Mechanics” is ready for an audience.
