8th Annual Free Summer Theater in the Parks Production

By Mary Lynn Dobson

Directed by Karina Ramsey


Have you ever heard of Robin Hood, the merry woodsman who takes from the rich, and gives to the poor?  Now he's back! In this funny and wild story, Robin's Sherwood Forest becomes the setting for an adventure that will have you rolling in your seat!

The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood will take you on a romp through Sherwood with that swaggering guy-in-green who always tries his best to do the right thing. In his never-ending quest to aid the needy, he encounters a not-so-usual damsel-in-distress, a scheming sheriff who has a knack for bowling and a bad-guy royalty "wannabe." While you're watching it, look for the "Town's Girl" to pop in as well!
