Auditions for Death of Robin Hood

All events will be Covid-safe – social distancing will be observed and masks are required.

The Story
Oh no! Our Intrepid Hero of the People, Perpetual Scallywag, Master Archer, Savior of England, loved by women and children alike, is DEAD! How could this have happened? WHY would it happen? And how did he get so many fabulous titles in the first place? In “The Death of Robin Hood” we learn the whole sordid affair from those who knew him best, both friends and foe. A Comedy in 2 Acts with a running time of an hour and a half. Will be full of silly costumes, witty dialogue, daring sword fights, and a whole lot of fun!
