Classic theatre productions are often proven winners with audiences, but the Yellow Tree Theatre is ramping up a tried-and-true story with a fresh-take production of Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood by Ken Ludwig and directed by Craig Johnson.
Performances run April 10–May 10 and spotlight “a reimagined and rollicking” version “featuring raucous comedy, amorous exploits and gags galore,” according to the theater. “Packed with thrills, romance, laughter and immortal characters like Maid Marian, Little John and Friar Tuck, this brightly colored adaptation proves that Sherwood is as alive as ever.”
Don’t look for Maid Marian to be her usual self. The production finds her to be “a whip smart diplomat and an even better archer than her hooded counterpart.”
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays–Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays; and matinees are set for 2 p.m. on April 22, May 2 and May 9. Ticket prices vary and range from $26–$30. (Reduced rate tickets are available; contact the box office for information.)
