The Drama Department at East Arkansas Community College will present the spring production of "Robin Hood" on Friday and Saturday, March 30th and 31st in the EACC Fine Arts Center. The curtain will rise for two separate showings on Friday, March 30th at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 31st at 7:00 p.m.
"Robin Hood" is a hysterical, sprawling, action-packed drama featuring the conflicting legends and ballads about the outlaw folk hero. Written by Larry Blamire, roles that challenge and reinvent the myth were created in retelling the legend. The drama adventure includes a wise-cracking, superior swordsperson in Marian, and a Robin who by chance finds himself a hero. The Sheriff’s sleazy scheme to wed young Ellen fizzles, King John’s vicious taxes are rescinded, the Sherwood Forresters are finally legitimized, and a justice descends on England’s green and pleasant land. Blamire’s Robin Hood premiered at the Open Door Theatre in 1983, and was directed by Michael Poisson. The play is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
