THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD to Play The Grand 1894 Opera House, 10/24
.) Join internationally-acclaimed Visible Fictions for a silly and unexpected take on Robin Hood as they present The Adventures of Robin Hood center stage at The Grand 1894 Opera House Friday, October 24 at 10am. A Serious Fun Children's Series performance at The Grand, this lively production is suitable for grades 3 and up.
In a forest somewhere near you, there is a band of brothers seeking to rid the land of evil and return hope to the poorly treated. They are lean, mean, trained justice fighting machines. Armed with whatever comes their way, nothing is as it seems in this Sherwood Forrest, but one thing is for sure . . . no rogue is safe! Be prepared to unleash your imagination as Visible Fictions brings this classic tale to life. Look out rich folks, your piggy banks may never be safe again!
Originally co-commissioned with The John F. Kennedy Center for The Performing Arts, The Adventures of Robin Hood is directed by Douglas Irvine.
