Robin Hood performances at GNT in March

Posted February 7, 2018 at 9:59 am

“Robin Hood”, a play written by Tim Kelly, will be the next production at Good Neighbors Theatre.

With a youth-filled cast, the play is under the direction of Paige Mayercik who led last year’s youth production of “Lady Pirates of the Caribbean”. Assisting Director is Missy Davis, a veteran actor on the GNT stage, who most recently was involved with directing the 2017 Christmas Spectacular.

The play will be performed March 2, 3, 9, and 10 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. on March 4 and 11. The theatre is located at 8780 Highway 111 in Byrdstown, Tennessee.

Robin Hood, the outlaw of Sherwood Forest, leads a merry life with his followers. Anyone who is hungry or who has no place to live is welcome in the greenwood.

The citizens of the forest oppose wicked Prince John. He’s taken the place of King Richard the Lion-Hearted, who has gone to the Holy Land on a crusade. One day a caravan cuts through the wood. In the convoy is Robin’s childhood sweetheart, Maid Marian, ward of King Richard.

Alas, the evil Lady Merle of Cornwall plans to force Marian to marry the Prince in an effort to make John more acceptable to the people of England.

To arms! It’s up to Robin to stop the marriage, defeat a nasty sheriff and secure Nottingham for the king’s return. It’s all done in rousing fashion!
