Flint Youth Theatre Presents THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD
Flint Youth Theatre - Michigan's Professional Theatre for Young Audiences presents "The Adventures of Robin Hood" by Oliver Emanual. Performances for this hilarious and innovative new play begin Friday August 11 and run through Sunday Aug 20. Tickets are now on sale.
Two actors play all the roles in this playful and unexpected new take on Robin Hood that will unleash your imagination! It's a tale that's been told a thousand times - although never quite like this. The Washington Post says "Robin Hood hits the target with imaginative play...ingenious!" and DC Metro Theater Arts calls it "Cheeky, intelligent fun, wonderfully imaginative and with a message that resonates at all levels from the youngest audience members to the oldest. Seldom have I spent a more enjoyable evening at the theater."
"The Adventures of Robin Hood" is directed by FYT's new Producing Artistic Director Michael Lluberes (The Boy in the Bathroom) and the two-person cast features Bret Beaudry (FYT's The Cat in the Hat) as Sherriff and others and Brandon A. Wright (MSF's As You Like It) as Robin and others.
The production team includes Scenic Design by Gene Oliver (The Tempest), Lighting Design by Drew Florida (Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka), Costume Design by Cat Boss (Stuart Little), Sound Design & Fight Choreography by Dan Gerics (Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka), Props Design by Bary Lehr (Huck Finn). The Stage Manager is Nicole Broughton (The Tempest).
