The Adventures of Robin Hood: A Musical—Sort of
By Carmella Gates
In this whimsical telling of Robin Hood, our protagonist comes home from fighting in the Crusades to find his world was not as he left things! Prince John and his tyrannical rule have taken over, imposing insane taxes on the less wealthy. Still loyal to King Richard, Robin becomes an outlaw, attempting to fairly distribute goods and wealth to the citizens of Sherwood Forest. Shenanigans and evil plans arise in this hilarious and slightly musical play with many odd and lovable characters!
Director Brooklyn Riggs has been in the theatre industry for 14 years and has worked in children’s theatre education for almost a decade. She has earned an AFA in Theatre as well as a BA in Theatre Arts with an Acting/Directing emphasis. She is currently working on her MA degree and licensure to teach Theatre & Dance for K-12. She is excited to direct her first production with Delano!
