Our first show on the Mainstage is an exciting classic that will thrill all age groups.  The Outlaw Robin Hood is an action-filled play about law and order in Medieval England with some of our favorite characters. In this version of the well-known tale of Robin Hood heroic deeds are seen anew in Robin bedeviled with a dilemma: obey the law and see people suffer the worst evils of the feudal system or break the law and see injury and death to his people.
