ROBIN HOOD And His Merry Men Come To Pittsburgh

Merry mayhem takes over three of Allegheny County's favorite parks as Pittsburgh Public Theater performs Robin Hood by Greg Banks, produced in special arrangement with Plays for New Audiences, in South Park, Boyce Park, and Hartwood Acres, June 26 - July 9, 2022.

Directed by The Public's Artistic Director Marya Sea Kaminski, the cast features Arjun Kumar, Jade Langan, Douglas Levine, Lydia Miller, J. Alex Noble, Nicholas Robert Ortiz, José Pérez IV, and Allan Snyder. Robin Hood is presented by the M. Patrick Daniels Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation. Production underwriter is Audrey Hillman Fisher Foundation.

"Robin Hood is a story for the kid in all of us, about friendship, justice, and the joy of adventure," says Artistic Director Marya Sea Kaminski. "We're thrilled to share this very funny and heartfelt production with audiences of all ages. With acrobatic fights, live music, and our beautiful county parks serving as our Sherwood Forest there will not be a dull moment. It's the perfect summer outing for families."


Robin Hood is part of the Public Unplugged series, which launched last summer with Barefoot in the Park...in the Park. "The last few years have been challenging but those challenges inspired innovation," says Managing Director Lou Castelli. "Public Unplugged was born out of our desire to bring people together after too long apart. Partnering with Allegheny County Parks gives us the incredible opportunity to reach out in a broader way, bringing more communities together to enjoy the adventure of storytelling."
