"Robin Hood" has a band of merry men.
Four shows remain for the comedy presentation of “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood” at the Harbor Performing Arts Center.

The Brookings-Harbor Community Theater production will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 22, 23 and 24, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.

The play, written by Mary Lynn Dobson and directed by Dori Blodgett, features Robin Hood (played by Steven Nagel) and the merry woodsman, who take from the rich and give to the poor. In his never-ending quest to aid the needy, he encounters a not-so-usual damsel-in-distress, Lady Marian (Cassidy Ward)  who likes to be in melodramatic. Also featured is her brassy Lady in Waiting (Pam Lynn) and a scheming Sheriff of Nottingham (Gary Reissner), a villain who has a knack for bowling.

 

In this adventure, the audience will meet the gold-obsessed Prince John (Tony Hobbs), and the good-natured “Town’s Guy,” also known as The Narrator (Dorothy Shull) who manages to make her way into every scene, whether she belongs there or not.

Playing the band of merry men are Joe Donahue, Rick DeHaven, Sennett Vest,  Scotty Oka, Karen Dillon, Jordan Grenert and Courtney Dornback. The royal staff includes four Fawning Ladies played by Nadine Pizzi, Barbara Holmes, Brittney Lawson and Hailey Rogers. The Guard is played by Nathan Dodgen and the Jester is played by Chase Hahn.

Blodgett said the play is appropriate for children 5 and older, since many of the jokes are more verbal than visual.  

The crew includes Stage Manager Hazel Campbell, Properties Mistresses Pati and Colleen Gibson, Costume Designer Courtney Dornback, Seamstress Dori Blodgett, Light Technician Megan Hulen, Sound Technician Morgan Loring and Stagehand Hunter Hahn. 

Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $7 for students, and are available at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies and Pacific Rim Copy Center in Brookings, and New Wave Video in Harbor. The theater offers a family package for $25, available by reservation at the box office. For more information, call 541-469-4700.

The theater is in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center in Harbor.
