Spring Theatre presents ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’
Spring Theatre will present The Adventures of Robin Hood Aug. 3 and 4 at the Mountcastle Black Box Theatre in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 251 N. Spruce St. in downtown Winston-Salem. Robin and his Merrie Band are always looking for an opportunity to perform daring, dashing deeds in their customary fun-loving fashion. When the nefarious Sheriff of Nottingham decides to collect taxes (again!) and kidnap the lovely Maid Marian, a series of disguises, rescue attempts, archery contests, and sword fights ensue. Adapted by Michele L. Vacca, this delightful, witty and fast-paced play is fun for the whole family.
“The Adventures of Robin Hood script is extremely funny and well-written,” commented director Mark Flora. “The show will be an immersive experience that will transport the audience right into Sherwood Forest, complete with medieval music and dance. This production will surely be as entertaining for adults to watch as it is a joy for our talented young actors to perform.”
Mark Flora will direct The Adventures of Robin Hood, assisted by Grace Reasoner. Brooke Bond will design the set, with lighting design by Patrick Burke. Trinity Wertheim will design costumes, assisted by Anna Hartle. Katie Ballard will choreograph the dance sequences and Chase Whitehurst will work as fight choreographer.
