For immediate release through Dec 18.
FARMERS BRANCH/DALLAS • A fun farce for all ages, Theatre Brookhaven presents “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood,” Dec. 8-18 at the Arena Theatre at Brookhaven College. Mary Lynn Dobson wrote this ‘Monty Python-esque’ spoof of the traditional Robin Hood story.
Directed by Charles Self, the show has humor to appeal to all ages. In Sherwood Forest, Hood’s merry men spar with wooden spoons instead of swords. The famous contest with the Sheriff of Nottingham is almost decided as a bowling tournament and Lady Marian is more concerned with having a skin condition than with Robin’s attentions.
Shows are Dec. 8-10 and 15-17 at 8 p.m., and Dec. 10-11, 17-18 at 2:30 p.m. in the Arena Theatre, Building C, Room C205. General admission is $8; student and senior adults are $6. Tickets are available at the School of the Arts Box Office at 972-860-4118. Box Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Friday from 1 to 3 p.m.
Theatre Brookhaven is a performance component of the School of the Arts. The Brookhaven College School of the Arts is funded in part by a grant from the city of Carrollton. For information about the School of the Arts, contact Rodger Bennett, executive dean, at 972-860-4730.
