"After all these years, not much has changed except that I'm not afraid anymore to do things, to try new things," she said. "It's a wonderful job."

Hop aboard the Pea Green Boat as it sets sail for merry old England. You'll meet Maid Marian, Robin Hood, Little John, Will Scarlet, and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. You'll hear "Blind Archie" hit the bull's-eye during an archery tournament and cheer for Robin Hood as he rescues Maid Marion from the Sheriff's castle. And while you listen, we invite you to draw the pictures you see in your imagination.
