The (Somewhat) True Tale of Robin Hood
October 17 at 7pm & 18 at 2pm
Directed by Karen Braz
It’s hard to be humble when you’re a swashbuckling, egocentric superhero. But as the Children’s Theatre Project, directed by Karen Braz, celebrates its 19th season with this Monty Python-esque retelling of the classic Robin Hood tale, our gallant guy in green tries his best. This time around, the legendary legend ecounters a lovely damsel-in-distress obsessed with skin conditions, the ever-scheming, ever-bowling Sheriff of Nottingham, the bad-guy wannabe Prince John, and a good-natured “Town’s Gal” who manages to maker her way into every scene, whether she belongs there or not. This, plus a band of spoon-wielding merry men who’s collective I.Q. equals six, makes for an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forrest that you won’t soon forget!

Listen to the Concord News Radio interview!
The eccentric La Putts family (Buddy, Yvette, Grandpa & Grandma and two somewhat average children) is desperately scrambling to keep their family business from foreclosure…an old fashion/out-of-date and out-of-the-way hotel offering peace, tranquility and seclusion from what is known as “The American Rat Race”. A second mortgage is definitely out of the question since they are unable to pay off the first. Then one fine day a charming “pharmaceutical salesman” (Harry Warner) stumbles upon the secluded hide-away. Enamored with its sequestered location, Harry recognizes its potential promising monthly sales meetings, lots of guests and lots of dollars. Buddy believes his prayers have been answered. Now who doesn’t believe in miracles? Throw in a few of “Harry’s friends”, his simple-minded/ditsy fiancé (Mara Dingle), a private detective with delusions of grandeur (Adrian Snoops), a pair of 80-year-old newly weds, the Feds, and the family parrot (Jose) that may be too smart for its own feathers, and you are in for a wild ride as the La Putts family ultimately discover they have been duped and are now personally involved with a notorious drug cartel. They soon learn what it means to stick together and fight for their lives.
