The Heart of Robin Hood

 

The Heart of Robin Hood

By David Farr

In this spectacular rendition of the English legend, the notorious Robin Hood and his band of merry men steal from the rich, but refuse to share with the oppressed peasantry. As the wicked Prince John threatens all of England, it’s down to Marion to boldly protect the poor and convert Robin Hood from outlaw to hero.

First seen at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2011, this national amateur theatre premiere is filled with high adventure, epic romance, amazing fight choreography and an original score inspired by contemporary folk music!

The Seagull

 

The Seagull

by Anton Chekhov

This one’s going to be something special: a lyrical, unrequited love story brimming with characters wildly passionate and more than a little kooky! Chekhov is the master of exposing that uniquely human ability to possess two powerful and contradictory feelings at exactly the same time. The result is equal parts romantic, hilarious and tragic with heart-stopping moments of exquisite honesty.

Stupid F##king Bird

by Aaron Posner

The question Aaron Posner keeps asking in his adaptation of Chekhov’s portrait-of-the-artist-as-a-young-man soap opera “The Seagull” is why: Why do people even produce plays in the 21st century? Why don’t we just stop making new stuff and take a few years to consider all the stuff that’s already been made? Why are we even in a theatre watching someone ask these questions? One glib answer is this: Maybe if theatre stopped talking about itself all the time, people would start caring a little more. Or maybe laughter is enough!

STUPID F##KING BIRD contains adult content and strong language.

The Robber Bridegroom

 

The Robber Bridegroom

Book and Lyrics by Alfre Uhry

Music by Robert Waldman 

Based on the short story by beloved writer Eudora Welty, “The Robber Bridegroom” is the Southern-fried Robin Hood tale of Jamie Lockhart,  a dangerous, handsome, backwoods rogue who’s a gentleman by  day and bandit by night. When he falls for the beautiful daughter of a wealthy planter, his world and code of ethics are turned upside down. It’s a lean, hilarious, intelligent book with a hard-working bluegrass score. Who could ask for more than that?
