Photo Coverage: First look at Curtain Players' ROBIN HOOD AND THE SECRET OF SHERWOOD
by Jerri Shafer - Jun 16, 2016

Join us for Robin Hood in the park this summer in Westerville! Sword fights, secret identities, love, betrayal, and redemption: history and legend collide in this new tale of Robin Hood. 800 years ago, when the Brothers Huntingdon lost their parents to the treachery of the Plantagenets, their lives took very different paths.
