ASTORIA — The Astor Street Opry Company presents its annual Children’s Theatre production with performances of “Robin Hood: The Musical.”
The show is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado, and directed by Astor Street Opry Company veteran Patricia VonVintage.
Robin Hood is the outlaw of Sherwood Forest, leading a merry life with his followers. Anyone needing a place to live or food to eat is welcome in the greenwood. Impoverished citizens led by Robin are waging a battle against the evil Prince John. He has taken the place of King Richard the Lion-Hearted, who has gone on a crusade. Lady Merle of Cornwall, however, hopes to make John more acceptable to the people of England by forcing Maid Marian, Robin’s childhood sweetheart, to marry the Prince. It’s up to Robin to stop the marriage, defeat a nasty sheriff and secure Nottingham for the king’s return.
Performances are 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, Feb. 16, through March 3. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. They are available at asocplay.com.
