The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will present the classic story, Robin Hood! Auditions will be held at the Dogwood Center Black Box. Youth ages 12 and up are invited to come and try out on either Thursday, May 10 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. or Sunday, May 13 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Casting calls for at least 21 male and female roles with room for many extras.
Who doesn’t know the story of Robin Hood and his merry men? Well, you can forget all about it. This version of Robin Hood is a hysterical, sprawling, action packed drama. Besides cleverly retelling the legend, the author has created roles that challenge and reinvent the myth. Including a wise cracking, superior swordsperson in Marian and a Robin who only by chance finds himself a hero. But true to the legend, all ends well; the Sheriff’s sleazy scheme to wed young Ellen fizzles, King John’s vicious taxes are rescinded, the Sherwood Foresters are finally legitimized, and justice descends on England’s green and pleasant land.
The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will be directed again by Chelsea Webb. The performance dates for Robin Hood are July 27 and 28. For more information please contact the Dogwood Center at 231.924.8885.
