The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood
A frantically funny, Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic tale. This time around Robin Hood, in his never-ending quest to aid the needy, encounters a lovely damsel-in-distress (oddly obsessed with skin conditions); an ever-scheming sheriff who would rather bowl a strike than hit a bulls eye; a gold-hoarding, bad-guy monarch wannabe; and a good-natured "Town's Guy" who manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not. Combine them with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men whose collective IQs equal six, and you've got an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forest you won't soon forget. Tickets start at $9 and are available by calling (614) 224-6672. Show times are March 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, and 26 at 7:30 p.m. March 13, 20 and 27 at 1, 3, and 5 p.m. March 14, 21 and 28 at 1 and 3 p.m. For more information visit www.colschildrenstheatre.org.
